Jinibara Country (Qld, Australia)
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.


Just outside of home base. Kootenay Lake, at Ainsworth.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    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
    $20.00 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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.
