Day 2 at my first hop out was a Saturday. The morning was very quiet and i had no idea when my ride would come. Just in case i was there all weekend, I needed to make a supply run.
The nearest commercial area was directly across the yard and through a humble residential pocket. It also saved me from walking through the bougie hood that flanked me from all other directions.
Made it across with no problem. On my way back, a yard worker drove past me into the yard. At that point, I was still off property, but it was clear where I was going.
As I entered the yard I saw him waiting in his truck. So I came in through some bushes and hid in this pile of concrete where I could see his truck.

LOVE IT!!! Love my gnomes! There is a house down the street that has their front yard dressed up in a magical kind of way. They change it every year - with little trinkets and objects hidden here and there. But the focal point is the "party" going on in the front. There's a table and chairs and mis matched barbie and ken dolls. Last year had an army joe with a barbie slung across his shoulders. Miniature cans of "beer" on the table and flung off to the side. Always an entertainment to walk by it!

    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.

    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.
