Hey what's up! I just came across this forum and damn i didn't know I had people until I found this place. I'm planning to travel the world NOMAD-style, I'm just so sick of the mainstream world and want to live life the adventureous way. Currently based in The Netherlands, but I can call any place home, as long as I'm not stuck there for too long. Anyway, I welcome any advice for people like me just starting out in their travels and thanks for having me :)
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Hi Y'all,

I didn't know there were this many comments on my post, so sorry for the delayed reply..

About the nomad culture in The Netherlands: in my experience Dutch people are a bit uptight about that sorta life here, but where aren't they, right? Now I've tried my hardest looking for Dutch communities like this one, but either they're non-existant or very very well-hidden. I'm not very experienced on any topic here, so for now I'm just here to learn, soryy!!!

Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome and I hope to maybe one day meet you on my travels!

  1. Paying the Bills

    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
    $105.00 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.

Hey thanks for the recent uploads to the library, looks like useful stuff!
Nearly done with the electrical system of the van. 170Ah Lithium ion, 2/4K inverter, 400 watt of solar, 40A MPPT controller. Should be up and running (or explode) this weekend.

After that I have to finish the primary work table, which will be the last big piece of the build.

Nice picture, on the Wikipedia "hobo" page... I was working on that page a little, a few weeks ago. It's a total mess and I just scratched the surface, but I keep watching and hoping someone else will improve it. That photo improves it for sure. Wish I knew enough about hobo history to write something decent there.
