    Hey what's up everybody, been living in philly for a few years. dead end 9-5 is nice so far as having a roof over my head and being able to save a bit but getting old. Most likely gonna be on the site reading up on gear etc., and planning a couple real short trips to test things out while i think about what's next--done some hitching through canada down the mid-atlantic and spent some time with my sister at grow heathrow in the U.K. but never really been on the road for long enough to need it.

    Not too sure why I want to go in the first place. If anything you'd think growing up with gutter punk friends, going to watch them catch out as a sendoff, then seeing them come back months later all fucked up would be at least a mild deterrant. Anyway, until I have a question or could use an opinion on something that's not been beaten to death already on here I'll be lurking around--safe travels everyone!

    P.S. if i get a chance to root around on my computer later I have a few pics from grow heathrow i'll post. great outdoor squat. wish them the best in their ongoing legal battle with the landowner.

    Welcome here .

    And just saying. You dont have to come back all fucked up after a few months. Totally fine to enjoy the road in a positive way, see the world and meet people and grow as a person.

    Yah honestly what you get out of travel is mostly your mentality, how you handle life on the road and what you expect to get out of it. I travel stateside and international and yes, shit happens sometimes u find urself down on ur luck but it's all about keepin your wits, making smart decisions and if it's just perspective or a change of pace ur looking for, remember that and don't get caught up in other ppls bullshit & choose ur company wisely. that's how u end up coming back in a few months all fucked up haha at least in my experience. I spent my childhood in Philly and I go back sometimes but seeing my friends who never left makes me really remember why I did.

    Yeah, as I've gotten around more and met more people doing their own thing, living their truth, etc. I've come to the same realization that it's all what you make of it. Even if that's just slapping the bag and beating the brakes off each other over some dumb shit (not what i'm into at all but whatever floats your boat i guess). Who knows, maybe when I head back to the midwest in a couple months I'll run into some of my old pals and see what's new. Thanks for the kind words all.
