I don't post on here too much but I thought I'd pass the bad news on because I know some people on here knew this guy. He died last night in Little Rock. I dont care to discuss all the details. He was a sweet fuckin guy and we will all miss the shit out of him.
Life keeps kickin my ass.

i met andy in richmond some years back while he was staying at the flying brick house, im pretty sure he helped install the grey water system there. myself and t bone took him on his first train down to jax ill never remember how stoked he was. we kept in touch for years but kinda fell out of touch the past few years. i knew andy was struggling but i didnt know it had gone that far. believe it or not i gave him that nickname, it was originally andy the left handed onion because god damn he was good at stealing food and that bastard smelled almost as bad as me at the time and i thought that was a true feat for anyone to accomplish. a good friend called me this afternoon and said they had bad news and that it was about my friend andy, i knew immedietly what had happend and nearly burst into tears on the phone. andy was a real gem and im glad to have known him. another one gone way to fucking soon. unfortunetly after digging through old photos i couldnt find any of andy, im pretty sure i had mailed them to him years ago and kept only the ones that he had taken on my camera at the time.

one of my favorite stories about andy is him commenting about 2 ducks fighting in a pond, andy of course having the humor that he had said they were obviously fighting over a lady duck. so it goes. rip buddy.

EDIT: i nabbed 2 photos from his stp account where him and other stp members had breakfast together.

    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

    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.

Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
I'm finally headed out on the road and out of this state as a renowned painter's assistant in a month. I cannot wait for my childhood dream of travelling as a visual artist of some sort to become true. Hats off to you, Mayosky. Bless your fuckin heart man. Ya saved me.
