In this episode of the podcast I describe my recent brush with the water and no life jacket. We also receive our first care package and a mystery postcard from Los Angeles.

Ok I know this is old but it's good. Lol I think I can hear you all drinking and smoking in the background. Key West boat punks are always there and down for a good time. And red snapper is still $12 per pound these days. By the way if anyone ever boats around cruise ships, those wakes can hit 10 feet high or more and you need to turn your boat to face the wake. Ocean scares me, weird shit out there with whales whirlpools etc. I did my time on the sea but, i like being grounded in the middle of a continent now. Glad you're okay.. matt have you learned to swim since? Is the other guy in this audio on STP? That was really cool of him to dig around the sinking boat for floatation devices for other people.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $85.00 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
    $85.00 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.
