Sorry that wasn’t a proper tribute post. Just a little shocked, both to be reminded of him, and in this way. I don’t remember him super well as it was about 15 years ago in a boozy haze. But he was a sweetheart and a true free spirit, I know I remember that much and that we rode a few trains together- I seem to recall his gear was a bindle and a weird little fixie bike- his knuckles said it all... RIP indeed. A real one.

Sierra?

I was wrong that he had the bundle and bike at the same time. That makes no sense. When I met him he just had the bike and a courier bag. Later it was a bindle when he’d went mad old timey. He was such a sweet and funny person and truly intrepid. One of my early favorite companions and role models.

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.
