Jovan "Apache" Arce passed away about a week ago. The police contacted his family and they're the ones who told everyone else, he was found in SoCal. Unfortunately, that's all I know.

Apache was a character. Most of the time I couldn't decide whether I wanted to smack him or kiss him. That's the kind of guy he was. He was a talented musician and despite his many flaws, he still had a good heart. He was the kind of guy who would stick up for me, even when I wasn't around. Sure we would be at each others throats but I cared about him. I still care about him. Because he was one of the good ones.

Bueno suenos mi compadre. I'll see you again one day.

I just heard about this a few days ago. He was a character and there was one or two scares that he bit the big one in the past few years so when I heard about it, I had a hard time believing it was true until I read more info.

RIP, dude. I'll remember the times that you were cool.

I deleted myself
Only meet him at the first jamboree but I always heard about him after that. The best memory I have was when I almost burned down his Jeep on the way to the dunes with creature (inevitable apparently). He was chill as fuck about it and took responsibility for his towels catching fire when I definitely know it was my cigarette butt that did it.

Whatever drama followed him I didn't see it during the jambo. I remembered him being pleasant to be around and full of energy. I liked his music too.

Rest in peace apache, hope the next world doesn't pull shit like this

I met Apache at the 2015 Jambo as well, he went by "loops" for a bit. I talked to him occasionally, but unfortunately never ran into him in person again.

Here's a pic of him that I took at the first Jambo. It's not the greatest quality, but it's what I've got.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    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
    $45.00 of $75.00
    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
    $45.00 of $100.00
    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
    $45.00 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.

Latest Status Updates

Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
