Ahaha, I think this is something most of the people here have considered. Great video!
Personally I've always thought it would be cool to stow away and use them basically like hopping a train.

All freight should be ridden.

Post 911 no more FeDex flights for me. Sigh.

I watched the first few seconds...I'm going to come back to this when I have more time. Looks badass.

Bad ass! I've dreamed of stowing away or working on a oil platform in the middle of the ocean. Away from this fcked up world.

I'm into all kinds of cool, so this is cool.

But how feasible is it to stow away on a freightliner?? Of course I've thought about it before but I just can't see it ever happening w/o ending in a felony, short of a miracle. This isn't 1716.. And working on one, well I can imagine waiting 6 months to a year for a possible opening on a vessel. And that's probably after getting a crystal clear background check. Just making a few assumptions here.

Great shots in the video, but I had to do some necessary skips or the music might've driven me completely bonkers.

    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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
