Yeah I'm interested. Send updates on what the scouts say? I'm far out now but could end up on the east coast.

I'm in Ohio heading that way idk if I'm going to scout it or just go for it. Few 50 lb bags of rice and beans, 5lbs of salt and a cook pot should just about do the trick

I have been thinking I have been thinking a lot about this island thing and I'm still going to do it and it's still a good idea but I realized I have no idea how long it takes for a fucking tomato to mature let alone some corn so I'm probably just going to go out there with a bunch of people and some big bags of cheap rice and beans it will still have a really great time and if you want to plant things or build things that's okay but I just thought maybe it would be cool to set up a sweat log and make a big art piece out of all the trash we cleaned up off the beaches and it also sounds a lot more of a realistic goal

Tomatoes take a while - seeds started inside now, planted in May would fruit by August. Greens are fast, can be harvested within a few weeks. Growing near salt water can be a challenge too. Maybe construct a greenhouse of sorts - plastic sheeting and some lumber...good luck!!

Okay here I am. Cape Cod Massachusetts. Easy part is done. The trek is over the real journey begins now. This is a retirement home I'm working towards here. A home we can take to 70% of the planets surface! I'm ready. Need a floating family of brave care free souls to help make this happen. Who wants to see Australia?

Plan A. I'm getting a job. Reading up on sailing, navigation, maritime law, weather, ocean currents, anything I can find. to get down basic mechanics and tour local islands I'll rent or borrow small boats or beg my way into anything with a sail to learn more. Aquire a boat big enough to circumnavigate the globe and be the best pirate and adventurer I can be.

Plan B. Enforcing plan A. Scroll up incase you missed it.

If any of you are really serious and want to really do this. Now is a good time to get to Cape Cod. It's beginning now. I won't waste time and I really want as many people who are passionate about doing this to help realize the dream with me from the start. Floating family situation. I am no leader and don't seek to be a commander or monarch. Collective cooperation for the overall good of a group with common goals.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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
    $45.00 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.

Im securing a squat tonight that should be a good long term squat. Also im playing a show tonight.
Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
