Where are you at now? If I had to suggest a place that fits your criteria I would say you are looking for a small city. Reno Nevada is great like that, 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe so an escape to nature is easy, lots of summer events, the casinos serve booze round the clock, lots of work, cheap rent. In the cons category i would say in 5 years it will be blown up as they are going thru an urban sprawl, but on the flip that means there is money to be made especially construction. Also if you check into the shelter and get a job the city will pay for a shithole apartment for 3 months. tons o meth but that's an easy scene to avoid. Eugene Oregon is cool, Nashville is very welcoming but to big for my taste. I am also partial to east texas

Hi ! Sounds like you want to escape routine but you're still a bit shy about it. Nothing to be ashamed of, I'm the same and I suspect a lot of people to be like this ! Surely smaller towns will be safer, although I think it depends on your luck and how you use your senses (which is not very hard once you have to use them)
Just to give you an idea, I'm a french lady who traveled for 3 months in the US. At first I didn't get how things worked, what people were saying, etc. It can be hard for the first few weeks, but the truth is... You'll just create a new routine ! Change is scary but it's just like learning a new language : if you don't have choice, you will learn it !
After re-reading your post I wonder if my message is off topic or not... Anyway, my advice is : jump in !

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    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
    $20.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.
