Well that's one way to get a ride... (1 Viewer)

So I've been planning a hitch hiking trip from my current location to a small surfer/hippy town about 320 km north of here. As usual I was trying to earn a couple extra bucks for the trip, so when a buddy mentioned that he needed a few tabs of acid, i put my feelers out, and found some really good stuff, that I could get and sell to my buddy and turn a $20 profit while still giving him a good deal. When I met with my acid guy(an old school hippy we will call Grasshopper) he mentioned that me buying the acid from him was great because he is leaving town in 4 days and needs to make a few bucks, I mentioned that I'm leaving town the same day, and asked where he was going......wouldn't you know it, he was going to the same surfer/hippy town as I am going to hitch to! At which point he right away offered to give me a ride, and I offered to help out with gas money and weed. As we talked more, it got even wilder, because we are both going to the same anarcho/hippy commune in the damn town! so in 4 days I hit the road with Grasshopper. Stay tuned for the story in the coming weeks.

    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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
