How's everyone's night going? I'm currently at my second job scrolling through the forums and soaking up game from all you true travelers. You see, a couple of weeks ago, I went hitchking up the PCH after calling out of work one Friday morning (gimme my sick pay). I barely made it to Goleta from Malibu in 3 days but the sense of freedom I felt when I hit the open road took my mind further than any miles I could have covered.

Now, I can't stop thinking about leaving my soul sucking office job as well as this second job I got in order to travel the world. After 30 years on Earth, I'm done wasting my life making money for the corporate machine. I'm planning on working just a little more to save some money for travel then I'm gone.

Thank you to every one on here for the inspiration and massive amount of information. Hope y'all have a good night!

Dude hell yeah so glad you took those days to go hitching! Welcome! You're in the right place! Traveling is the best thing I have ever done, and continue to do.

Feel free to post some stories and photos from your hitch if you'd like, we here would love to read them/ see them!

I like your picture.

Know what you mean wasting your life working, same here. Hopefully it will end so I can take off for good! Just some patience I need and I will get there!

Thank you! I got to the point where everything seemed so mundane and gray. It felt like groundhog day (same shit over and over). When I went on this hitchking mission, I experienced pure feelings of joy which reanimated me instantly. I don't think we're meant to be stagnant all of our lives living in a box. Our ancient anscestors have been traveling for 1000's of years, it's part of our human nature. I will no longer fight this natural instinct.

Welcome to our place! There's quite a handful to learn about, and the more you read the important stuff we provide, the more you'll be aware of your surroundings and the resources available around you.

Welcome aboard. Babylon sucks. So does working for the man. It used to be somewhat tolerable decades ago. Now it's fighting for economic survival especially with all the gentrification going on. The more people that say fuck that, the better off we will all be. Best wishes for your new direction in life.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
