Hey everybody, figured I'd throw this out there to anyone interested. I'll be leaving Chicago this Friday, November 30th and heading to Santa Cruz, California. I'll be taking i-80 the entire way and would welcome some company! I only have one seat in my car, so I'd only feel comfortable driving one other person, but I do have room for a pet if you have one. This is gonna be a straight shot trip so I expect to be in Santa Cruz by the 3rd, possibly the 4th if I'm draggin ass.

A few things about me; I'm queer as fuck so you have to be alright with that. Gas money is always appreciated but not necessary. I'm weed friendly, alcohol I don't drink much but it's fine if you do so long as you're not a shitty drunk.

I think that about covers it. Let me know if you're interested.

Sorry friend, i'm already several states away. Plus I had to detour to i-40 due to all the winter storm crap.

Good luck to you!

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
    $100.00 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.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
