In this video Guisepi Spadafora (a former train hopper) shows off the bus they've been living in for the past ten years. There's some insanely awesome build ideas you can take from this video if you're interested in converting your own school bus. Guisepi also gives away free tea as a way to combat the idea of monetary one for one exchange (capitalism, essentially). There was so many interesting conversion ideas I found myself watching the entire 15 minute video, so if this kind of thing is your bag, you should definitely give it watch.

Saw him in Phoenix at a vegan food festival. Guy was so kind and gentle. World needs more of him. I got his "Make tea not war" bumper sticker on my house/truck

I met him in Green River, Wyoming probably around 2010, on a hillside at the spot I was going to wait for a train at. Only hung out with him for a couple hours before one of us caught out, but he was good company. He made some claims regarding rides he had done that seemed a bit far-fetched but I gave him my email address and he sent me pictures as proof later.

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $110.00 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.

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
