Howdy! We are currently on 70 hitting Denver then the plan is wander around SoCal. I (F, 23) had never even been to a city bigger than Louisville and have never traveled west of Kentucky. He (M, 33) has done it before, but been a few years. We have a car and camping gear, food, some of our things to sell (just sold our Switch for $375). We are liter winging it with no plan. We left everything behind and want to live free of societal norms. Maybe we won’t have the car for long, but if we can learn the wise Ways of the rubbertramps amongst us, then maybe it will lead us the way. Otherwise, we may end up hitching someday.

so I said we have no plans, but we have some ideas. We want to head north up the coast from San Diego, taking our time, and camping. I will need to read up on the wildfires, but hope everyone is being safe. Portland, Eugene, and Seattle are definitely on our list. Then we would love to be invited or welcomed to Slab City once the cooler air arrives in a month or two.

We camped out last night in Evansville IN in such a random spot by a little lake. We our gonna try and make it to Denver/Boulder tonight if anyone is out here. Hiiii.

that site is great for reals. So far it’s 1/1! We are heading to a place south of Denver tonight.

Two questions for ya Matt: when is a good time to head to the slabs? We expect it to be hot, but don’t want to wait too long and it’s too busy? Or can any newbie in a car find a spot and be welcomed in no problem?

Welcome to the forum! Here's to good and happy living on wheels. Wildfires here in CA are constantly changing so make sure you keep updated with them before heading somewhere. fire.ca.gov is a good resource.

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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
