Hitchhiking Montreal to almost-Toronto has been tough so far, but me and my man need to make it South the hell away from this cold quick. We´ll be crossing the border on the 6th or 7th of November into Buffalo, trying to make it to Nashville. I hear Buffalo is a shitty place to get stuck in. Any tips for us to get through Buffalo, down South, or knowledge of cool spots to sleep the night? P.S. We´re not train hoppers. P.P.S. I´m kinda banned from hitching in Ohio.
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Look up bird house in search for buffalo. Its a collective/squat/education/activist place. Ask tim if you can crash there.

Looked at the collective- pretty cool - especially with the history behind it. Highwayman did some great research! Use me if you you need me - and good luck on your trip!!

We didn´t get to check out the collective, but we DID eventually make it out of Buffalo. Got stuck because of the stupid throughway in the way further South in the city, exasperated, then got a chance ride to Route 5 after asking a restaurant for freebies (sweet cornbread, woot!) and walked a ways down. Got a ride to the beautiful middle of nowhere just out of a reserve until finally a second ride got us to Fredonia NY college - Pretty cool place to chill and meet some potential jam partners and score some free food and shelter.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$25.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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
    $25.00 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.
