Here is the deal I see allot of post about dirty kids ? Im myself not a dirty kid but a hopper/tramper with a notorious but quiet group .

With this said I know personly of 2-5 friends I have are members here that read allot . I was asked last night by my boy is that just a dirty kid site ?

My other question if you were to label yourself what would it be besides human?

Hope this fits well in general banter

I've been homeless when I was younger and went as long as I could stand before bathing in a creek or lake if nothing else was available, but I've never considered myself a "dirty kid."
I've surfed couches and camped in the times in between, but never even heard of a "dirty kid" while hanging in soup kitchens and shelters.
I'm hitting the road again in the spring on my own terms and voluntarily, and at 42...pretty sure I'm not gonna be any kind of "kid," but we'll have to wait and see about the "dirty" part. LOL

I've have never, not once, tried to describe myself as a dirty kid. Yes, I am more or less on the younger side. Yes, I tend to take long breaks between rubbing soap on myself. That being said, I was never ultra crusty, and I don't tend to listen to punk that often.

I went on tirade about this before so I'll spare ya the rant. To summarize, there are too many other words I prefer to use to identify myself. I like to think that StP is a site for every kind of nomadic traveler, whoever they may be and however they choose to present themselves.

Ya, I definitely dont describe myself as a dirty kid either. I dont really like to hang with "crews" or any other large groups of people for that matter. I guess i'd consider myself a nomad/rover/opportunist?

Hence Coywolf.

I love this site because of the vast array of people on it. Putting a certain label on things (includings communities) is pretentious IMO, but hey, some people are proud as hell of their labels, and more power to 'em

i would describe myself as a 'former crust lord' or former dirty kid. as for this site being only for dirty kids, i'd say we have a majority of folks that are from all kinds of backgrounds, and we're definitely better for it :)

Classic Matt ,
To all above comments are great I don't like self identity as well. It's insane to be a follower

I don't really like all the labels myself, but think groups often like to umbrella themselves under familiar titles. Creates camaraderie, or something. It is smart in any travelling through groups of modern bipedal beasts to know their titles and familiar sayings if you don't want to be instantly other'd out of ignorance. I prefer just to be called Shadow, but you might see me holding all sorts of umbrellas for others at different times...

I see this and was why I asked on behalf of another



Perfect me as well !
Ya why label yourself? Aren't we all misfits who don't conform to labels? To me, this site was the inspiration I needed to buy a van and convert/ move into it and travel. There's absolutely no fucking way I would have found the strength to do that in February in Minnesota had it not been for this site. I am anything but "dirty". (Most of the time.) I stay physically and morally clean while rubber tramping or whatever you want to call it when you work part time and live in a van full time and travel when you aren't working. I take regular showers (made easy by Wawa gas stations and a 6 gallon water jug), I help others who are living on the street or just in need of help, and just do my best to do the right things.

Maybe I've been reading this site wrong but I view it as all kinds of travelers sharing stories, pictures, and conversations of all kinds. It's awesome.

The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
going crazy..

You ever just look at a word and it freaks you out because it's spelled right but you start thinking on some meta shit how does this noise mean this concept? 'Smooth' freaks me out right now.
