This is a great story of adventure! I like reading about how folks do things differently than one would imagine a traditional hobo would. I've yet to hop a train, for various reasons. Though if I think back to the first time I dreamt of doing it. I didn't have a smart phone. It seemed almost impossible. Now my same friend and I that had that same dream almost 20 years ago have been doing some serious planning for our first ride.
I'm inbetween trying to figure out how I'm going to get to Portland from Austin. Then we're going to try and head to Seattle from there. I plan to hop/hitch as much as possible.
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.
Buy Matt a Beer
$75.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$100.00 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.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$105.00 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.
