Sorry for the last minute announcement, but I've decided that we are ready to move to the latest version of the forum software we use here on StP. This is going to be a huge upgrade, so that means the website will be offline for as much as 48 hours or more. During the downtime, you can check the StP twitter page or come chat with the community in our discord channel:

https://discord.gg/QQjYP6H

I will be posting updates as I proceed with the upgrade. This should be a huge advancement for the website and I will be covering new features in several small posts after the forums are back online.

Matt, you're killin' me here, dawg.

I'm stuck on a wildfire airbase, pouring rain, with nothing to do but troll StP. This offline thing is gonna kill me!!

In all seriousness though, I hope the update goes smoothly. Thanks again for providing this resource to the travel community, 'O Crustlord and Savior!

the downtime will be delayed slightly due to the fact that it's taking longer than expected to download a backup of the website. things will probably kick off around 2pm PST.

for anyone following this thread, i was able to get things back online sooner than expected (monday) so now i'm working on bringing the rest of the site back up to speed with the featured we had before and then adding some new features after that.

Support StP!

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
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

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
    $100.00 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.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
