Anything else about myself: Looks like you found me! Well I'm either in Antarctica or Hawaii, or floating around the planet by thumb. I'm pretty keen on giving people travel advice, especially newbies and people who are a bit timid about the whole thing, because I've had countless people help to get me where I am. I'm an avid hitchhiker and world traveller and big proponent of a global community, even if it is only a sub-community beneath the corporate and beaurocratic mongrels that hog all the attention. So If you're feeling lost or unsure and just need to talk to somebody who knows what the heck you're talking about, give me a shout. If you're looking for a crash pad, chances are I'm crashing someone else's pad already. But who knows, every problem has a solution.

Profile Summary: I am now "settled down" in Berkeley after nine years on the road. I'm getting married soon, too! I have been to all seven continents and hitchhiked in most of the countries I've been to. Nowadays I'm better suited as a host, though our apartment isn't quite set up for it yet. If you ever need any advice on travel, especially if you want to hitchhike, travel on a near zero budget, or just plain want to follow your dreams and need a sounding board, give me a shout. I'm happy to give you info on Antarctica, but I can't help too much in getting you a job.
