heres Lil Swindles (@carol ) , As many people as there were kicking us down 3 course meals on the daily, there was an equal amount of people threatening that they were gonna go get their gun, come back and shoot us, however we waited and waited and it never happened so i guess our untimely deaths are still pending.

Everyday we spent the morning lifting weights at the gym as we usually do, eating dumpstered food, and hanging outside bars at night time swindling drunk people out of a couple dollars or bothering people outside of clubs. One lady said if we were willing to go back to school she would pay for our tuitions Lmfao

Also went to the skydeck:

Dragged a drunken Swindles, who insisted on harassing Scooby Doo, several miles where we met up with @Johny

This was a free haunted house thing to promote the remake of the movie It, we stood in line for 3 hours just to bother this clown ass Lmao the haunted house sucked it was only like 5 minutes and lil swindles and i were probably the most entertaining part of it.

We decided to hitch north however somewhere between here and there we just decided to sit around bullshitting and laughing at our own jokes when some dude pulled up to as and asked if we were hitching So we were like oh yea i guess we were lmao He said it was on his bucket list to pick up hitch hikers and asked if we wanted to go with him to Malibu and look at some caves and things so we did.

@palmazon Nooo i did i was just playin haha ::bag::

@Matt Derrick thanks yo :rolleyes:

@sd40chef damn i dont even know i wouldnt even say memorable as much as that i have several questions comments and concerns
#1) I didnt even know deadheads and juggalos were actually a thing until i went to the west coast for the first time i always thought it was an obscure concept, EVEN MYTHICAL, i would say
#2) Voodoo donuts isnt even that great
#3) hollywood is ratchet as hell but LA has the best bum feeds :)
#4) I had no idea LA was so big, I thought i would just show up and the california welcoming commitee would greet me with lots of balloons and John frusciante from the red hot chilli peppers would just be there and we would get married. There were no balloons and there was no john frusciante however third times a charm so ill tell u guys all about our wedding in a month or so
#5) the police driving down hollywood blvd every morning at sunrise very slowly gently waking up all the bums wishing us all a great morning a great day, Actually i think thats as close to the california welcoming committee as it got Hahahahahahhaha
#6) NOLA is actually a shitshow
#7) depression in seattle is very real and they are very defensive about people saying they have one of the highest suicide rates in the country. “That was before. We dont do that anymore.” hahaha i was depressed the whole month i was there no matter how many tacos i ate i forgot what the sun looked like and my skin tone dropped like 5 shades and so did my life :eek: Haha
#8) oh yeah dispenseries! I walked into one for the first time in seattle and my mind was blOooOoOown that there is a store where weed has barcodes and they scan it and you pay for it Hahahah and that they sell pre rolled joints it looked like some fifth element 2040 shit yet we still in the hood struggling ??? Ha

I've never even been in a semi-truck bed thing. That's super cool. Sometimes I wish I was a woman just to travel!!!
Jis keep it gangsta in teh hood sistah

I'm reading about John Frusciante now and I didn't know anything at all about him... it's pretty interesting. I'm tired of super famous rich people being depressed. I have a reason to be depressed because my life is super lonely and totally pointless!!

@junkpolecat99 i feel like that too most of the time so i sit in a room listening to john frusciante all day and then sometimes i go out and try to be a person again and it sucks so i go back to being quarantined. When i travel i just hang out by myself most of the time ,people suck . Hahaha thats so cool that your reading about john frusciante,i would say in the last 6 months of traveling the country i met only 1 person who has heard of him and 1 person who knows someone who has heard of him Lmao

the truck bed ride was cool for a minute , the driver was a raging alcoholic and had to stop every few hours to get shitfaced sleep it off for like an hour wake up start drinking again so he could drive except he couldnt drive and was maniacally swerving in and out of lanes on the highway screaming at the top of his lungs having the time of his life then he would realize hes swerving and would ask us to give him thru the lanes and to let him know if he swerving then he drove down a oneway in the opposite direction at 2849379 miles an hour he was a shit show so we left him but at least he got us through texas in one piece haha

Read John frusciantes aaautobiography in early high school. Really ininspiring lots of respect for him.
Hahaha insane clown posse! I learned about juggalos in Denver. Met some self titled deadheads in the bbay.
Never checked out that voodoo donuts place but I saw it in Eugene and Portland. Interesting to hear your perspective of LA, Never been there or the inland empire. Was not in the frame of mind at the time to deal wwith navigating a massive metropolis vie never been to nor did I know anyone there.
I hears plenty of nola from every kid I met pretty much but since I was oonlyin America for a few months I decided to avoid it as partying and the vibe I interpreted of it is not on my list of things to do these days. Spent many years on that ttip.
Would definitely love to walk around and explore nola and meet locals and check out the bayou and the music sscene, architecture and the nrighbourhoods outside of the downtown area or wherever all the dirty kids and tourists mingle.
Seattle sounds alto like Vancouver BC from that nonstop dark pnw rainy bone chilling depressing cold winter. Not fun for ccamping or being homeless yet so many people are.
Dispensaries are awesome. I love knowing the Cbd and thc content in what Im buying and having it scaled infront of me.
I was pretty much just riding trains solo so I was pretty much only in crew change towns except for a few roadtrips I did thrust northern cali and in the sierra's with some friends .
I hadn't ridden any llines in America prior and my intention was pretty much to meet inspiring cool people and ride around observing society and the natural landscapes while doing my art reading and all the stuff I enjoy along the way.
I really enjoyed needles California. That place is an oasis. I was drinking water straight from the Colorado river and its in the mojave desert. Swimming and nonstop trains. The only aannoyingpart is there is like 5 liquor stores and nowhere to buy fruit and veggies. Saw a dude from Bakersfield selling mandarins and bought a bag for a few bucks north of the rriver in Aarizona.
Oakland was interesting. Pretty laid back but hood. Lots of graffiti. Process of being gentrified with new condo complexes. People camped in parks and vehicles everywhere. Feels lawless somewhat. Exhausting but very sstimulating.
Whitefish Montana is super boougieand the cops don't like travelers too much but its very beautiful and Whitefish lake is awesome to jump in after getting off a train. The ride between Libby and Whitefish and east of Whitefish in glacier national park reminded me a hell of a lot of riding in British Columbia which I love.
Green river Wyoming comes to mind as a nice quaint high desert town where u can get off a train and jump in the river. Portola California is real nice. Have a fire by the river and catch a train.
Black butte/dunsmuir are really neat spots. Friendly locals and beautiful sscenery . lots of rr hhistory .
Most of my experiences in america revolved around trains so I don't know what you are looking for in future travels but thaws what I can offer. Come up to Canada if you can.

stuff n things from the past couple of months.

heres Lil Swindles (@carol ) , As many people as there were kicking us down 3 course meals on the daily, there was an equal amount of people threatening that they were gonna go get their gun, come back and shoot us, however we waited and waited and it never happened so i guess our untimely deaths are still pending.

Everyday we spent the morning lifting weights at the gym as we usually do, eating dumpstered food, and hanging outside bars at night time swindling drunk people out of a couple dollars or bothering people outside of clubs. One lady said if we were willing to go back to school she would pay for our tuitions Lmfao

Well what the hell happened here

The worst part of all this is that One Hot Minute is the ONE red hot chilli peppers album WITHOUT john frusciante. I personally feel that promotion of this album is blasphemous and serves as sufficient basis to be banned.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
