• Hey folks, I've gotten a bit burned out after running this site for over 20 years (geez) so I'm looking for anyone that wants to be an admin on StP and help run the technical side of things. If you're interested, contact me!

Hey there. I’ve had an account on this site and Couchsurfing for a while bc I’ve always known this is the path I’d end up on. Admittedly, I’m a bit of a coward, but after the last two years I know I can’t go on living the normie life.

I’m already on thin ice with the couple currently letting me stay here, so I’m planning on getting everything I need, packing up, and getting out of their hair before it’s no longer a choice.

There’s a few trains around where I am in Nebraska, but I’m also an ape so I have no intention of trying that particularly form of travel alone. Hitchhiking and walking will be my main forms of travel. Im broke as all hell right now, but if I sell my unnecessary belongings I might be able to get a backpack and boots worth their salt.

I don’t really know what else to say, but I’m happy to get to be a part of this community. Maybe I’ll even see some of you down the road some day.

I got an external frame backpack you could have. It’s got a great hip belt to take a majority of the weight. But it is a bit large and it’s easy to pack too much but it’s in good shape. I think I got an old sleeping bag and basic cook kit too. Might have some other stuff , maybe an old sleeping pad and tarp ( blue unfortunately). Pm me if your interested. Good luck

I reccomend if you can get it Military boots (Tactical Research By Belleville Khyber II Boots Ive used *Not hobo btw just my experience with these boots* for around 1 year now and I love em. They are hybrid so can be too warm for Hot states like texas and new mexico but I like the insulation since im skinny. Around 150 and also reccomend new insoles personally. Take care brotha

Everything went to shit shortly after this post and I spent 6 weeks in jail, and am legally being forced to leave Nebraska. I’m heading back to AZ where my buddies got a job lined up for me to save up some cash for a car or bike or something.

Then, I’m probably gonna try heading to the Slabs for at least a couple months. From there, who knows where the road will take me?
