Hi everyone,
I'm currently in NW Ohio and leaving within the next two weeks. Don't know where I'm going yet so I'm up for ideas for a warmer area and prefer being able to work. My ultimate goal would be to get back to rubber tramping. I don't have a vehicle since I haven't needed one in the last several years. If you do have a vehicle and a sense of adventure and also want to work and have room for one more, let me know. I have been tired of the societal norm for over 25 years now. I live a nomadic lifestyle which makes it difficult for most people to relate to me (which I'm sure everyone here understands).

I want to experience more of the joys in life (who doesn't). I don't like working but it is a means to an end. I want to explore more of nature, good times, good vibes, good people. I enjoy the open road, nature, cities, solitude and conversation.

I have learned that

there is no such thing as security and we only have the promise of our current moment in time. I live outside the norm whenever I can. I can’t live by societies version of what is right for me when they can’t decide what is right for themselves.

Rules are meant to be broken. No one lives a life of not breaking any rules so I am not one to judge. I simply won’t put myself in a bad situation intentionally.

I live by the rule that when the Universe opens the door, you walk through without hesitation. Friends in society are hard to come by because they have not lived our existence and can not relate. It’s not their fault. I am not going to change how I live for anyone. Eventually I will find some land and homestead and have a tiny house or earth/dirt based home.

I appreciate connections and assistance in the form of information as I am always willing to help others. As I start the next chapter of my life, I find it comforting to know I can go where I want and at the same time it can be overwhelming. This time I would like not to have to travel alone and actually be able to share the experience.

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 this 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.
