Seems like y'all enjoy some visual reference so given the fact that I'm just drinking and chain smoking...Left my hometown in rural Illinois (pop. 350) for New Orleans fall 2013........the rest is what it is <3 A glimpse of my last decade

......Driving the Bonnecarre expressway at about 12:30 am.....Nola (Well, Metairie) looks like a waffle house sign in the desert. Drove around a while until I found a spot ($20) to leave the van for a bit and wandered the quarter. Ended up drinking a few and sharing some venison jerky I had with a few dudes "Lefty" and "Hot Sauce" out front of Sydneys. They pointed me towards Checkpoints. The first time I saw The Unnaturals

That's some trip... the pictures are real good, and I'm sure there's a story to go with each one of them.

What was rural Illinois like ??

Many times I think of leaving where I am and going to a place that time has forgotten, with a very small population out in the middle of nowhere... but then sometimes I conclude that that's a bad idea, because some of these small towns don't take to kindly to outsiders, which I can understand.

I don't generally have wifi enough to lay the last decade out in one go (rural life) so I figure I will add as I can, and as I can recall it haha. I am in far northern Illinois and as far as I have ever seen it is quite welcoming to all so long as you treat others with respect as they give you. Brought a ladyfriend from Nola back home (considerably more street-wise at the time than me, and with far more outlandish tattoos and ways) and she never had a single qualm

Thanks for sharing. It looks like you've had some fun adventures. All the pictures are great, but the smiling dog picture steals the show. ❤

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
$65.00
Goal
$100.00

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
    $65.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $65.00 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
    $65.00 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.
