Ive been on this train since yesterday at 10am. So about 22 hours. Its been pretty shitty.Last night sleep was crap. Train food is expensive. I spent $10 yesterday and a turkey sandwhich and a pepsi. Another $3 on a orange juice this morning. Bummed me out so i decided to make it a screwdriver heheheh

Overall the scenery has been somewhat dull. But thats because it got dark and i couldnt see anything. But when i woke up to this norcal landscape. I kinda changed my mind.

If i do decide to do amtrak again. Ill definitely be bringing food and alcohol. I thought id be able to hit a vending machine but unfortunately the stops have been too brief.

Ive got another 12 hours to go and two more states.

Thats rough bud. get off in washington and take city buses
The city buses in WA are actually really great. In Seattle, they use a color-coded ticket system that repeats itself after a few weeks, so save your tickets and find out what the "color of the day" is!

When I lived there, I only bought like, 20 bus fares in the course of about 9 - 10 months.

i did the same thing when i lived in federal way. that was a few years ago though. i think they might have have switched to just the orca card though.

Yeahhhh, never buy the Amtrak food, its just a over priced convince store. Pro tip I just brought my own rammen bowls and beef jerky for the trip and they filled my bowl with hot water no questions asked. Also just fill a water bottle with vodka and or a gatorrade bottle with half vodka half gatorade drink and repeat.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 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
    $40.00 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
    $40.00 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
    $40.00 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.

It’s very hot here. That’s all
TFW you're a trans girl hitching solo over a thousand miles through Western Colorado, Utah, Las-fucking-Vegas, and all the way down to California without a scratch or nary a creep to fight off only to get drugged in a gay bar that I've been to before during a pride night that's billed as a trans/nonbinary/gender-nonconforming/POC event in San Diego. Wowzers

(Don't worry, I was safe and taken care of that night, just taking a moment to appreciate the fucking irony)
