Where must we go... we who wander this wasteland, in search of our better selves? (1 Viewer)

I am a wanderer, and will be a wanderer, long after the demise of this form.

I was hitting up couches and sleeping in the park at age 16. At 18 I hit the road and never really stopped until I was 30. I have been all over the U.S except areas in the northeast (too many people for me). Hitching and hiking, dumpsters and diving.

(Typing on a phone sucks!)

The last 9 years have been just as big of a trip and mostly in apartments. Spent all of last summer living out of a scion xa (2 people) also known as car-v-ing. Since I bought that car in 2015 I have driven over 65k miles and surprisingly in only a few states.

Life is meant to be an adventure right?

I'm sober now, and older. Maybe boring but full of thought.

I don't know why I'm here yet.

We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I always traveled with a road atlas and every time my anxious side would see all those roadways in Pennsylvania on up I would nearly need to buy a new one and another lunch.

Welcome to the Community!!!

Car-v-ing? Aaah yes! I live in a car once because most of the time I was serving legal papers and working security part-time watching construction sites, most of the time I slept in the back seat! lol

Welcome Aboard!

We made a little bed in the back with a camp cot mat and a ton of blankets. Was quite comfortable. Packed and unpacked it twice daily for months (this part wasn't so pleasant lol).

My skoolie had a queen size bed, as did my van until I yanked it out to put in my friends apartment for her. Much more comfortable than the camp cot mattress although filling up a scion xa is a helluva lot easier than a van or school bus.

The give and take.

Kind of like being able to shower every day and not having to lug my gear vs. the complete and utter feeling of freedom from frustration of society.

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.

I hosted Lilith/@slaapkaamers for 3 nights in Nov 19.
She was an exemplary guest. Good w both conversing and alone time. Trustworthy, didnt steal anything and I felt very comfortable leaving her alone at my place. She didnt stink and not a junky.
Lilith is a legit traveller, she's a sweet, artistic chick w lots of good and interesting ideas to chat about. A pleasure to host. If she's in your neck of the woods you should help her out. 😉
I have a pretty good new squat in sfe but im leaving soon if anyone wants the keys lmk.
The peavine is gorgeous, I highly recommend that route.
Fucking winter snuck up this year
Damn It! I've been thinking and debating about applying for a position as an Amtrash locomotive engineer! They have openings for Salt Lake City, UT and St. Cloud, MN. I know I got to go through training but I'll be on call 24/7? There goes my sex life and night time weekend parties! Screw that, I'll play with my train set-No Pun=No Joke!
Made back up into Cincy for the weekend. Gonna chill with some homies before we head west for the winter..
