Are there any wordpress blogs out there that have stories about tramping, riding trains, bicycle touring, etc. I used to read Johnny P's blog called the Dirty Journals, but he took it down. I haven't quite found anything like it aside from a prose poetry blog, which I also read from time to time. I just want some blogs to follow while I am stationary and have the time to read. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I enjoy reading this niche of stories. Thanks.

i've always wanted to open a blogs section of stp, but there's never been enough interest and travelers are terrible at updating them.

I have to say it but as appealing as a blog sounds personally i know i wouldn't keep it up (sorry to enforce Matt's statement). but i have been interested in a possible place for poetry and random short stories....

I just enjoying reading people's poetry and writings from the road. They normally have pretty good shit because its honest and real, but I realize the blog thing is impractical for some and others just dont like posting to the net. Figured it was worth a shot. There's only so many books to read and most are from the past, which is not really what I'm looking for as times are different.

Aw are you serious?! The Dirty Journals was one of my favorite blogs, somebody mentioned it once in the chat room thing on here (might have been you @briancray) and I read the whole thing over a few days when I was home over the holidays

I've run across a few others just from folks who've posted here on StP, evencowgirlsgetthepoops.tumblr.com (bike touring and hitching) and thesemichrist.wordpress.com (rubber tramping and exploring/hiking) have been some of my faves! Those definitely inspired me to get my blog up and running

Could you take a poll with the community & see if people would. I'd post a blog update everyweek on homebum camps, dumpsterin , van fixing etc ..

Hey brian. I remember your stuff here. Will have to ad your channel..

I too was disappointed when JP took his down. Last I saw of him was his tag in pdx dated 8/17, just a month previous when I passed through then.. so he's still around somewhere.

There's really only so many stories you can give the community before writing about it gets a little stale, if you don't do any major branching off to other stuff in your 'travel career'. At least that's what I've come to realize, recently. I still got old stuff to get down, though and try to stay on it.. Pm me bud if you want mine. All introspective solo stuff so far.

I'm at the end of my rope. I can't stay here anymore, but I'm too scared to face the winter alone. I think this couch might just be my deathbed.
