Ahoy there folks. My name's not important, but folks call me Roadbike. I'm a 21 year old vegan tranarcho punk and starving artist. Just got told about this site by a fellow traveler while cooking at FNB in Calgary, Ab yesterday and figured I'd catch it on the fly. I'm excited to head out again at the end of April heading east to see m'love and get some new stories with a crew of punks from here in town and am stoked to finally get a chance to learn how to hop from my friend who's done it a few times himself (we've never really been heading in the same direction at the same time before, so it should be good to finally get a chance to strike out with him). Guess I'm just looking around to see what this site has to offer and connect with folks who may, at some point, be heading the same way. Also, any advice for a first time hopper'd be much appreciated.

Thanks for the warm welcome folks. I'm definitely checking the Waystation thread, thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, my punk house is folding up and packing off at the end of April when I hit the road and my housemates are looking for their own places. My mate who I'm traveling with has a copy of the crew change from a few years back... from what I'm hearing some douchebag posted their Canadian crew change up on line a few years back and the dude who used to put them out got (understandably) pissed and stopped making them. Hope the info's still all good, though I can't really see it changing too much.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!

Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
