Take the Long Island Rail to the end of the line at Montauk and then hike a mile or so east to Camp Hero. It's an abandoned military base with innumerable abandoned buildings, dense underbrush, and serene beaches, if you like beach camping. There are plenty of jobs in Montauk, and for more civilization you can be in the Hamptons in just a few minutes. Suffolk County, and eastern Long Island in general have so much forest land it's unbelievable. A person could camp almost indefinitely here, and survive well.

I wouldn't try living there when its warm outside though, unless things have changed a lot since I've been there last...

There were a lot of ticks in the brush. That's the last thing anybody needs is lyme disease. But the location is so sweet. You can be in NYC in 30 minutes; or get a boat ride to CT or MA. When I got there at the end of May 2012, everybody was hiring. I bet there's some good fishing/sailing jobs there.

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $85.00 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
    $85.00 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.

Most likely back on the road again
My Anarchist's Guide to Travel came in today, six days early! I know it's not anything major, but I feel like I'm finally making progress towards getting myself out and traveling.

Now I just have to make sure I don't forget about my book review (which I wrote in my spare time) because I was too busy plowing through this. 😬

EDIT: It also came with a message from Matt and an awesome StP sticker that I didn't notice at first! Thank you!!
