Remaking my intro because a few things have changed!

Hi, I'm Teeth! I turned 18 back in October, and am hoping to start traveling in June or July. It'll be my first time on the road, and I'm looking forward to it greatly! I'm an autistic trans guy, so conversations can be a little awkward with me, but I do my best to help those around me feel more comfortable.

I've been in the punk scene since I was about 14. Favourite bands are probably Crass, . fuckingcom, and the Lunachicks, but that's all subject to change. I'm a massive horror movie fan, and if I was smarter, I'd probably listen to their warnings about what happens to transient teens.

I'm currently in Oregon. I don't have any travel destinations in mind, so if you have any recommendations for nice places to check out, let me know! Especially if they're newbie friendly.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better.

If you are in PDX, grab a pack and hit the rails in either direction from Brooklyn Yard. Great experience for the novice. When you arrive where you are going, simply reverse course and do it all over again in yet a new direction!

Oh, thanks for the advice! I was having trouble figuring out where to start, and after doing a bit of extra research, it sounds like a solid place to get going.

Please don't just "hit the rails in either direction" without doing your homework. Start out on a bus or hitchiking and learn to live on the road first.

I plan on doing just that, but I'll likely be based out of Oregon when I'm not traveling, so it's good to have the info. I'm likely going to find a travel buddy and hitchhike for my first few outings.

Must be a Canadian thing. Dunno. Yeah, maybe @NorfolkOff is right. You should be VERY afraid of hitting the road in any direction. I mean there is probably a book you could buy from Canada about how to ride the rails, right? I mean ... I'll shut up, right? Because I sure the fuck didn't start off that way, surely? ...

THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS THIS IS A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME DEAL! Call in the next 5 minutes to get your copy of "The Hoser's Guide to Rail Riding, Eh"

Operators are standing by! If you call now we'll even include a complimentary rail spike for those pesky boxcar doors.

Don't get caught without the guide!

Call now Eh!

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
$105.00
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
    $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
    $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
    $105.00 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.
