Trying to find our place in this world (1 Viewer)



I deleted myself
Hello, my names Danielle and the goofy looking guy in my pic is Shawn. He's been traveling since he was 16, I've been traveling since I was 18. I'm 32 and he's 24 now and still can't find the right place with our without the right people. I'm an artist by trade. Doing design work for small businesses and flash art for tat shops. I sail, snowboard, skate and have outdoor wilderness survival training.He's a salesperson and has medical training. Currently we're living in our car and traveling in socal (where I'm from originally) we're looking for other people like us. Friends, travelers, couches that may be available, fun stuff to do.He actually told me about this site and I joined instantly, because everyone seems super awesome so far. Hope everyone is safe and happy.

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount

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 his 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.
