I'm trying to get to Texas asap. My car broke down or I would just drive myself. If anyone can please help me I would be eternally grateful 😁

This isn't so much a site that lines up rides for people. It's more like a site for people who line up rides for themselves. Lots of hitchhikers and train riders here. Sometimes people get the wrong impression and think this is some sort of hub where truck drivers linger just chomping at the bit to give someone a ride. I don't know if that's a misinterpretation of the description or what but that's definitely not what we're about.

That's not to say there aren't friendly folks here who do travel in their own vehicles and rideshares have certainly been arranged on site but it's just not super common really so don't hold your breath. Also, not to be a dick but this isn't much of an introduction(Get Jennifer to Texas kinda sounds more like an assignment). All we know about you is that you need a ride somewhere. Introductions are usually like "Hi, I'm Bob and I like to surf" etc.

Welcome to squat the planet, Jennifer. Hope you're able to find your ride.

I understand what the premise for this site is. To be honest when you are desperate to get somewhere like say to your daughter that was assaulted then I don't think that your opinion really matters that much to me. I'm not stupid just a desperate terrified mother who will do anything and try anything to get to her child.

Cool. Yeah it's less about my opinion and more like.. what's most likely to work best for you. For example; Say you leave things as is. You don't become a part of the community, you don't share anything about yourself. You just leave this post up "Get me to Texas". I can almost 100% assure you, you're probably not gonna get a ride to Texas that has anything to do with this site playing a part in it.

So, what I was suggesting is.. maybe try to tell us a little more about yourself. Like the crisis situation you're in needing to get to your daughter. That's the type of stuff people can relate to and want to help someone they don't even know to make it happen. I think you'd have a lot better luck throwing a few more words out there beyond "get me to Texas". But that's all just my opinion which doesn't matter much to you so.. fuck it, go with plan A!

Well I just hope that you never have a daughter that gets raped and then have some jackass be a douche to her mother who is only trying to get to her in anyway or means necessary because she is all I have and I am all she has so Im not fucking sorry if my approach wasn't good enough for you but I wasn't trying to put that horrifying information out there. So does that make you happy you miserable fuck

Why do you insist on making this so personal? You're the victim & I'm attacking you? Now you're attacking me. That's so absolutely not what this is. It's got nothing to do with what's good enough for me. I'm trying to help you reach more people by suggesting you give just a tiny bit more info as to who you even are. That's literally all this is, or rather all it was before all the name calling and whatnot.

This is very personal and I will actually delete myself. Have a good day

We get that you're desperate, but being desperate doesn't mean you get to just join in here and start calling people jackasses and douches because they're trying to help you and you're not getting the help you want. Your daughter's been assaulted, and you're wasting your time insulting people on a forum where you're extremely unlikely to get a ride.

If you're really desperate, go to the ramp, stick out your thumb, and catch a ride. This isn't craigslist.

If I were you I'd start hitching and formulate a plan for when you get to your daughter. You're liable to freak her out and make things worse if you continue smash and bash approach of taking care of business.

I moved yer thread, and changed the title for you, but like has already been pointed out already yer chances of getting a ride from indiana to texas on here is about .01%.

We can all sympathize with how yer feeling but lashing out at other who are trying to offer constructive criticism of how you went about posting ain't gonna help you get a ride. I sincerely hope you get to yer daughter safe.

Yeah no need to move it just delete me. I understand that this site is not just a hitch a ride service. I was just trying to put myself out there and try to think outside the box and yes I am freaked out. So I apologize for disturbing y'all.

Squattheplanet.com/account/delete it's really yer call at this point. Aside from telling you which on ramp to stand on to hitch I'm not sure how else I could help you as I'm assuming you have contacted other possible family/friends. I know zero of what happend and at this point I'm not interested, we tried to help but this is a community, not a place where you can sign up be rude and get a ride.

Best of luck to you and yer daughter.

    More Info

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
$55.00
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
    $55.00 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
    $55.00 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
    $55.00 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.
