Word, iv been pistol whipped and kicked in the face and shot at but under different circumstances. Was rolled over by a gang of modocs on an old Indian reservation calling themselves the southern Oregon savages. . . but that tops that, mine was 30 minutes of hell, I couldn't imagine the ptsd that you have to go thru.. . . keap the story's coming yall! I was just walking down the street and got taken in for half a week or so, then her ex shows up flipping shit, me in house not hiding but getting ready to throw down, grabbing glass bottles for defense, my pack is locked in garage. . . . . . anyways we play it off like im her mom's friend and he ends up hooking me up with some Harley shirts and socks and the exact size tent I need. . . . . . . that was this week.

Damn thats some crazy shit from both of you. I really hope nothing like that ever happens to me.
Last year i met one of my all time best friends ever @Unlessisinfinite on okcupid and she housed me up in Tucson right after i got there. I stayed at her place for 4 months while i worked ,and now we're planning a trip to go to new orleans in November when i get back. Nothin but good times here no horror stories... yet lol.
That being said i think its worth a quick dice roll to use these apps, cuz you never know what great people you could meet while on the road.

Yep I learned my lesson
I'm sorry you went through all that, Candice! It does suck when dickwads like that ruin companionship for everyone else.

In terms of meeting up with people, never give up hope! Good people in America exist - you just have to go with your gut. I met several women in my travels who led me into a trap (got robbed at gunpoint), but I also have met several others who were totally awesome people in the end.

I would ALWAYS suggest talking on the phone and NOT some dicey app.

A digi-nomad's life for me?
Met a super sweet old traveler girl yesterday been off the road 6 months. So stoked on life right now
Amtrak crew change. Hiding from the bull
Got a new bicycle today! I feel so much better
Hitched from Ft. Collins, CO to Laramie, WY in three rides and an hour and a half. Today’s a good day.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
