Hello wonderful people on this wonderful site! Iv'e been browsing here all day reading stories and tips and whatnot and its so cool. I've wanted to leave "home" since i was very young but I'm now almost 26. I have traveled to California, Texas, Alberta, and most recently the American south during my time in the military.

Now I've been stuck in Colorado Springs since march, and after losing my temp job doing irrigation in September, my wanderlust has retuned to me! There's somewhere in the states i've always wanted to explore, the pacific north west! starting with norcal I want to see the redwoods, then move my way north towards portland then seattle.

adventure awaits.

thankyou it sort of depends. I've heard that whole area is in wet season so its practically raining every day in portland and that doesnt sound practical if I have to sleep rough at all, even with camping equipment. I might wait until april to head out then but then again maybe ill just head to socal in february until things warm up up north

Ya prob best to chill south for a lil while. You can do it in the spring just know theres gonna be rain. There's a place called the rainforest hostel that will house you on donations. Could be a handful of change or 20$. Good luck!

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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $85.00 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
    $85.00 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.
