currently hitching it to California. Got picked up by a girl yesterday in Amarillo who said she was going to California. Asked me if I could drive because she doesn't see too well. Got to Albuquerque and told her we needed gas to which she replied "I have no more money"

No stuck outside a McDonald's here, no idea what to do. Need to get cash somehow but no idea how. I don't want to just leave her, she's a nice chick who's had it rough and is trying to escape her boyfriend in Florida who beats her.

Any ideas? Would be greatly appreciated

Gas jug it! People seem more willing to give you a couple of gallons of gas than money. Even better yet, one of you can jug it and the other fly a sign, doing so at different places would probably work better.

Don't steal it from someone who needs it. Ask with a sign, and someone is sure to have a little extra. I'm in the same boat myself and will be holding a sign tomorrow... But I ain't stealing nothing from nobody... That karma shit will get you every time a hundred times worse, and then some

I'm actually in the sedona cottonwood area as well. I'll only be here for a few days, waiting on a car part but if you can make it here I can help out a little. Don't steal the gas. It's extremely easy to do but the karma you'll receive in return will never be worth the gas you take. The road seems to take care of me, often times in extremely unexpected ways. Be kind and the road will take care of you as well. Have you tried explaining your situation to charity or church organizations? They may help. For what it's worth, I think your on the right track by not just saying 'fuck it's and leaving her stranded alone.

Exactly dude.. its bad karma to steal and leaving her is just as bad. We've all been in his position once or twice.. especially starting out.

I'm imagining this kid just walking up to people saying aluminium and getting gas. No other words uttered. This needs to happen! We'll make it a thing... Like a codeword or some shit. Or like a password to a secret club of British gas juggers.

Salvation Army does give gas vouchers to people trying to get home. They'll only give you like $40 but it's better than nothing. Or gas jug/fly a sign

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
$90.00
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 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.
