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!

This is very last minute for the site to be down for an extended period of time, but it's not like anyone's life will come to an end over it.

I look forward to seeing what's new! ::artist::

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.

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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
