There was a NW StP meetup in Portland back in August - maybe we could do a late Jan. or early Feb. StP meetup in the SE USA? (While the north is all freezing fucking cold...)

If anyone's interested, where do y'all think is best location in the state?

there are some cool kids in st.auggy. i spent a couple months on my friend's sailboat while i was there last year..... FNB serves at the plaza some nights and there is also a soup kitchen that serves everyday. sooo easy to make money buskin or just walkin around the plaza square askin all the many tourists that stroll the town everyday for $$ and kickdowns. Or if you got dreads/tattoos/look weird you might be able to get a job bein a pirate for the pirate/ghoust tours. Local Heroes is a cool bar to hang out at. the police suck tho...just make sure you sit 50 ft. from St.George st when you busk and be careful about open containers there. and also - be cautious if you squat in that field near the railroad tracks there outside of downtown....heard talk of people gettin jumped/murdered out there recently....dunno...just a heads-up.

So, I'm thinking maybe Tampa/St. Pete or Gainesville would be good for a meetup - both are kinda central, so good for people having to come south or north - Gainesville a lil' more north for folks who are in in the north or just around Fla.
Plus you can hitch or ride in, and it's a college town, still kinda wooded in the outskirts.
'Course, Tampa or St. Pete also can be easily-enough accessed, and it's beachy-warm...

Well fuck. Some friends and I are going down that way in a week or so. I'd be down to party with you guys.


I say we steal a party boat in the keys, and make total destroy in the gulf!

Theres the Orlando FNB house, im sure they wouldnt mind you staying there.

Theres always stuff going on in gville, its pretty much a college party town.

Im in clw, clw food not bombs servs every Wednesday and if you are passing through i can gurantee you can meet some new friends and find a travel buddy// a place to crash there.

I know that January 30th theres a big art show//show going on at wayward council in gville.

Theres also a punk house in tampa. Always good shows and people there.

    $70.75 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.

    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.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
