Hello everyone!

My name is Sander, but i also go by Ben (s my second name). I've been lurking on this website and its discord for a while now, and finally decided to make a lil post to introduce myself since i'm hoping to be around for a while.
I'm 21 years old and studying psychology in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Last summer I had my first taste of adventure when a friend I met on vacation took me hitchhiking, and it was one of the best experiences I have had in the short time i've been alive. Now i'm hoping to learn some things on this website and go on a big trip next summer, hitchhiking around Europe. Already read a lot of amazing stories on here and I hope to contribute to that collection as soon as possible! for now i'm planning to hitchhike, but i'm in love with the idea of sailing around, and I often fantasize about van-dwelling. I hope to meet a lot of awesome people on here and maybe even find people to travel with.

If you want to know anything else, ask me! :D
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

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 this 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.
