Louie here! they/them/their pronouns. Currently an estranged hitchhiker and gas canning traveller who’s been living the stationery life out in Oakland, CA for a couple years now. Once had a profile on here many many moons ago but I’m guessing inactivity got me the boot, understandably so! Matt if you’re reading this we actually met during one of my travels a couple years back out in Slab City at the library. Took some old vodka shots and talked train hopping and Evergreen if my memory is serving me correctly. Still haven’t figured out where to put that StP sticker you gave me haha, waiting for the perfect water bottle to come around I guess. Anyways I’m happy to be back and tune into what the communities been up to. Wanted to train hop this summer for the first time but plans fell through. I know it’s getting later into the year and it’s not recommended, but maybe if I find a couple folx out here who are up for a little southern train riding adventure we could hang onto the warmth while it’s still around for a couple weeks? Not banking on anything but definitely down to make connections. I’m hopping either in the spring or next summer will be the time to make up for this years lost travels. Who knows tho, the wind always blows! Hoist sail when you can! Cheers.

    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.

    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.
