A few years here and there I did a permy job and stayed indoors for the most part. But primarily winter is when I spend the most time outside. Sometimes finding work but more often than not just bumming it like I never planned anything ahead in my life, feeling stupid for letting things fall through how they tend to. I dislike most of the southern states so usually wind up roughing it in the snow and rain. Fun for the first couple weeks, always.. but then it gets old and I get despondent and wait for the sun to come back out when works easier to find/manage. It's not so difficult finding farms, even during the winter, but always a pain in the rear checking into anything last minute. Gotta plan ahead of time.. plan way, way ahead of time so fingers and toes don't have to get burned and maimed every year.

Hmm, do you know why?
Well, cartel activity is picking up everywhere. The bullshit going down in Sinaloa and other Mexican states is spreading like wildfire. Tourists are being kidnapped and used as leverage in drug disputes. True story.

The government is saying to avoid travel to Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas states. (Guerrero's capital is Acapulco).

In fact, many states on the Mexico travel list are at Threat Level 2-3 (exercise caution or avoid). That list is here.

Just be safe, or perhaps get a passport and head down to Argentina/Brazil.

Brazil is just as wild right now.

Well i don really think that its more "dangerous" in the south of mexiko for gringos*as or wuerras. if youre first nation thats a different thing. you hear a lot of stories, i overwintered there last winter, on the road and sometimes in the tent, as wuerra. the only thing is the fuckers militarycheckpoints, so if you dont have id you should sure be careful. otherwise most people in the south of mexiko (not meaning yucatan) neither have a dollar a day to live, nor land to sustain themselves, fuckedupcapitalism, smashthesystem. but theres rel good organized anifacist structures around

I'm at the end of my rope. I can't stay here anymore, but I'm too scared to face the winter alone. I think this couch might just be my deathbed.
Resourcefulness is that hidden cache you discover only after exhausting your stockpile of bullshit

The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
