Hey y'all, I'm working on some back muscle issues that have been slowing my ability to hoof it across the country like I want to. My pack is really aggravating it, and I'm doing exercises that are helping, but slowly. I'm hoping to find a squat in a larger city, ideally Chicago but any large city would be nice, and some people to squat with.

I was just living in Slab City in a camp with 8 other people for around 3 months, a few were asked to leave by the end but I never had any trouble, I guess that makes me a decent living mate. I like to cook when I get ingredients, I try to keep things cleanish, and I dont do stupid shit that draws attention. I don't do hard drugs, and I'd prefer to squat with people who don't but I can be flexible, except with tweakers, it's tiring getting offers to join in on their "adventures".

I'm a pretty chill person, I'd like to think I'm funny, and I know a decent amount of people who think the same. I only have one person on STP that I've spent enough time with for a vouch, but I know plenty of travelers on Facebook that have some good things to say. I hope to meet up with some of y'all soon!

Regretfully, my profile is a little out of date and I haven't posted for a while. Looking at my posts might seem like I'm green af, but I've been tramping for nearly a year now and I feel like I know most of the rules to this shit by now, at least the ones that keep myself and others safe.

Why Chicago? Better off in Milwaukee except for winter. There's two tent cities here. Nice write up!

When I was in Chicago last I absolutely loved it there, and not just for the hot dogs. I got a lot of advice not to bum around too long, and to sleep as hidden as possible. I'd like to I stay longer, safer, and more integrated into the city culture

There are hella people squatting in Chicago and often looking for new people, or teaching people how to squat... How to put you in touch. I know squatter @s have beef with tiqqunists and may not be around social spaces much anymore. OH BLOODFRUIT the social space, hang there, ask questions.

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Hey all, been a while, a lot has happened! A little update, my bf got charged with domestic & my shoulder is sprained: things are in the works right now and my plan is to get an RV & GTF outta here!
If I had one more freight hop left in me, maybe two, I would take an NS 27A (auto rack) to Macon, get shuttled to Warner Robins to visit my friends since I haven't seen them for quite a while, then head back to Macon. Next up, maybe I would stay put under a skirted piggyback heading southbound to Jacksonville just to explore the Macon/Valdosta districts.
