Hello everyone! I'm fairly new to this whole subculture, ( read a lot about it when I was 14, forgot, relearning) and I'm just so overwhelmed with excitement when I think about it. I want to leave as soon as possible. I just need a strong companion who I can rely on to try to protect me! I've always got a knife, but I just am very kidnappable I think. I live in Northwest arkansas and I'm looking to go somewhere warm, I've never left arkansas, I want to see a wild cactus! I want to see lots of stuff. I hope I can make good friends on here. I'm 18 years old, work a factory job, and I'm getting sicker of it everyday! I'll go anywhere, just out of Arkansas! But as far as that companion goes, I just can't stand to be alone. I'm hoping heading out on the road will alleviate some of that but I would like someone to share my new experiences with.
