Depends on what you're into.

Haight-Ashbury is good for travellers, and there's free breakfast at Larkin St. (in Haight, by Buena Vista Park)

Golden Gate park is awesome, more places to chill than you can think of.

Take the BART to Berkely, hit up Telegraph. If you are into punk music, go to "Gilman St." Cool venue, a lot of free/cheap shows.

North by hitching, take the bus to the Golden Gate bridge, walk it, first onramp.

Richmond for freight, near oakland

telegraph in berkley is saturated with buskers and spangers.. i only made one dollar there playing banjo in one hour! cool musicians hang out on haight ashbury but unless you really have some good stuff or another person busking is slim due to competition. golden gate is full of homebums and traveler kids. i met some cool kids on haight-ashbury and theres lots of good music there too. clement street was the best for me busking by far if you are doing that gig..

I loved Telegraph! I realized that I didn't even need money there, I just cut straight to the source and asked for leftovers. Shit, 8 dollar vegan salads. HOUAM!

Plus Berkeley has FNB everyday, or close to it. You..you suck if you go hungry in Berkeley.

i hate berkley. too many cops. no very good or hidden places to sleep (that i could find before being too tired to search anymore) trashes were too gross even for me to rummage through for food. the place is just too populated.

berkeley has some of the best dumpsters ive ever seen. oakland too. semifredis bread dumpster?!?!?! amazing!!!!! if you hit up berkeley, camp out at the landfill....also known as the albany bowl, or water front. theres also a lot of woods you can stay in in the the hills. the busses are confusing though. if you need help im in the bay for the moment and ive been in and out of here for several years, you can pm me. san francisco has always been too overwhelming for me. berkeley also has the long haul info shop on shattuck. its a good place to chill out and meet other travelers. free coffee and food all the time!

well if you do go to san fransico there's a helluva lot there
when i was there i stayed in Golden Gate, and Buena Vista park, spanging is good on haight street and at the Castro, if you're a doode clean up a bit before you go to the castro and you'll get gay guys hitting on you offering you to buy you lunch, there's a HAYOT (homeless youth alliance of today) of haight & cole st. there's a larkin too, but i dunno there kinda tight ass jerks there sometimes. if you're into drugs you won't have any problem getting them.

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
    $150.00 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.
