hi all! I'm Mel, an aspiring traveler from Ontario, Canada. I was on the streets for about half a year when I was a teen, and for the most part was a homebum sticking around in one spot. Although some of the situations I was put in from staying in the same city weren't great, I loved the freedom associated with it and have been researching the traveling lifestyle for a while now. The time is coming for me to hit the road again and this time I want to travel the country and hopefully meet all sorts of new like-minded people along the way.

I love nature, hikes, rock and indie music, I'm an artist (but by no means a good one!) and love learning about peoples different religious and spiritual practices. Politically I would call myself a Libertarian. Currently my plan is to head out by the end of August. Although I may hit the road earlier depending on how things play out.
That's all for now! You guys should (hopefully) be hearing again from me soon.

Hey Mel, welcome to StP. There are a bunch of Canadians on here, including a couple in Ontario. I'm in BC and planning on heading east and maybe south in August. Do you have any destination in mind yet?

I was planning to head to BC actually! The weather is nicer and the mountains and nature there are beautiful. I've only been once before and really want to head back.

Total amount
$60.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $60.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
