Hitchhiked from Sacramento to San Diego & walked across the border for the first time, I don’t have a passport but luckily the Mexican border patrol took a 200 peso incentive to let me cross into Tijuana. I’ve ended up in Rosarito, there’s a shit ton of spring breakers here but I’m not wanting anything to do with that scene. Does anybody know what’s good down here? I’m kind of out of my element as I’m not exactly fluent in Spanish.

Might have wanted to think it through a little better broskee. I hope the weather is at least nice down there. We just got to San Louis Obispo from LA a couple days ago. Traveling back up north for 420 on hippie hill. It's fucking cold at night still. We are doing well for the most part though. Going to camp at big sur for a week or two. Hope you enjoy your trip. Be safe.

Head to Piedras Negras and catch the KCS freight train down toward guatemala. At night, you stay away from the Mexican hobos with machetes and bats sticking out their packs. You will learn the spanish as you go. In the future if you want to cross without a passport or bribe, just tell them you are crossing the border briefly to visit a diner.

You’re right I could have thought it over a little better but this trip was purely impulse, if I’m back up north I’ll be at hippie hill too for the holiday. The weather down here is just slightly warmer than LA but you know how coastal towns are.

And thanks a million for that valuable bit of knowledge about where to possibly catch out & how to not get ripped off crossing. I’ll definitely keep that in mind on this trip and in the future. So far everyone I’ve ran into have been very welcoming here. Nothin but good vibes thus far

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
