So, I moved a little ways north of Nelson, BC a couple of months ago. This area is too damn beautiful!
So many people are willing to pick up hitchhikers too (something I'm not used to, being from Queensland, Australia).

Here's a few photos from the past couple of weeks. Wandering my foot, my own car (when it runs) and thumb (even managed to get a ride across the lake on some dude's boat!).

If anyone else is around here get in touch!
I'm sticking around until I hit the road in November.

Welcome! Just passed through St Augustine... What a vagrant's paradise!!
There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!
torn and conflicted in so many i cant see up anymore. The road calls, but knee is fucked and man, that shit dont seem sustainable for long. school sounds cool but debt is terrifying, housed up but no where feels like home. Drunk and freaked out on the east coast.
