yo I'm native born and raised in Miami fl first started traveling in 2013 didn't turn out so good so I stopped and went back to the wage slave life. Now I'm in school at santa fe college here in Gainesville bored outta my mind.

looking to leave fl in august and ride my bike to Colorado, be cool to find a road dog or mate along the way.

I'm really laid back and like to cook and smoke not lazy tho

farming is my forte and riding bike

let me know if you want to travel

I've got mad respect for bike travelers. I tried it once myself but only got about 120 miles before I had to turn in the towel. I wish you all the luck in the world.

Got like 6 bikes, lol. Ranging from 1950s monarch, to 70s schwinns and a fairly new cannondale. Bikes are a huge party of my life!

What's your route plan exactly or roughly anyways? If you go thru Ohio I can give ya some helpful tips.
For example my home town is justbwestbof Cincinnati. Local bike shop there I'm good friends with the owner. He'd be more than willing to house you up for a few days wife makes delicious food as well. An I'm sure he'd give ya a free tuneup and some supplies if you need.
Prolly get ya housed upbdwntwn cincy as well. Bunch of old bike friends there.

Okay that makes way more sense, i was so confused lol.
I pedaled thru Oklahoma city few years back. Bike shop on the east side was really friendly. This was 2012ish so old if the same guy works there but the mechanic housed us up and fixed our bikes. Super chill and nice.

Typically most bike shops will be more than willing to help out. Especially if you tell them what you're doing.
I always made a point to stop at shops even if I didn't need anything if nothing else you get some good conversation an friendly faces

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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    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.

Back in minneapolis for a minute, possibly going to nationals? regardless hmu if you're around
Happy (very) belated Father's day to our Oogle Daddy @Matt Derrick !
Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
