Now, without going too off topic, allow me to explain what I want, know, and wish to know. And there will be a tl;dr I promise.

Currently I am a 25 y/o War vet who was discharged from the military for marijuana use/Medically Disabled (went through a lot of dark periods after deployment). I have bad credit, no job (worth mentioning), and no land. Most of my close family is either deceased or out of state. I have no kids, pets, and am divorced. I make most of my living income off of VA disability (can only do office jobs, but can't find one). I need something new. My life, interests, hobbies, everything has grown stale, bleak, and gray. I need a change of scenery, and I think it needs it be a drastic one. Of course, move to a new country. I chose Japan not because of typical "Anime comes from there" fantasies (to each his own, this just isn't sound for deciding the rest of your life to me). I chose it because I think I would enjoy the work ethic, group mentality, structure, and culture (always been a electronic/video game addict. Techy devices and such that may just be a waste of money are my favorite things to discover. I enjoy the compact living spaces and subsequently shorter travel distances to get to anything. i enjoy the idea of city lights, lighted streets and sidewalks to navigate at 3am when I need something late. On top of that, I feel safer in their economy than I do here (leave this one be, it's not a political debate).
I want to do it, I want to go from 0 prep now, to starting new in Japan, whatever it takes.

My plan right now is this.
Start school in a tech field with courses for Japanese. Work up to and earn bachelors degree, get VISA to work as English Teacher, integrate from there and live on.

Now, that's all I have. people say teaching English is about it if you want a liveable salary (despite how low it is). I don't know what this means in regards to the VA and my disability claim (could care less if I lose them if I have job anyway). I don't know what timeframe is realistic, I know nothing else. Are there any good resources to check? Any services that help with this? Any help is appreciated. I know in terms of criminal bac…

Your service entitles you to education funding I presume? Some tough questions in there. I can tell you that I tried to do this and failed. In Thailand though, and my circumstances were different, I only got a TEFL not a degree which would have changed things. I also visited Japan and found similar problems. Basically Asian cultures can be really superficial and dogmatic. You have to play ball. There's also a lot of people everywhere all the time. But I failed mostly because I wasn't prepared, and I didn't have realistic expectations. The other issue is sometimes you think your problems are all external and you can fix them by running away. This can also just make you feel the same but more lonely.

Will you enjoy going back to school for 4 years? Do you have experience as a teacher, is it something you're passionate about or is it a means to an end? I would suggest visiting Japan first before you commit to this, have you ever been a minority/been unable to speak or read the local language?

What you have on your side is what I perceive as tenacity that comes from tolerating military service. That's pretty subjective though. The other factors are--what's the place going to be like to live in, and--are you going to find satisfaction in this pursuit, because if you don't you probably won't get there.

I would say join some TEFL and expat forums and ask them, they're the ones that have decades of experience with these things and I've found them really useful.

Finally I would suggest the trades or sales as a possible alternative route that can give you cash flow to travel to a variety of places. That's what I'm doing. Teaching is highly social so you'd have to have that as an asset as well.

Honestly, it's kind of a way to get my foot in the door. I only want to do 4 years of college not only to find my way into the country more easily, but I could fall back on it at some point. I felt teaching was not only the common easiest way for most, it would help me to assimilate by possibly working with other foreigners, and I even might plan on using a share house to live for the first while. I honestly see a plethora of reasons this wont work, and I come back to the states. But, I have plan if that happens. And at this point in my life, I would feel worse never trying, or waiting until i am middle aged, when it isn't so easy. I just look at the list of things keeping me where and I am, and it's practically blank. Maybe it's just wanderlust. Either way, i would just like to assure everyone I have a fail safe to build myself for about 3 to 4 years. I also plan to pick a degree that will allow me to teach English to start, and broaden my horizons when I have decided to either stay or leave.

I also get what you are saying about my problems, and maybe you are right. All I know, is I have been through therapy, after therapy session, and I feel I handle myself abroad if this turns out to be the case. However, let's say this works, I find a job that pushes me into my ideal career, and I make friends and relationships with the Japanese. Sure, I have an obstacle as a Gaijin. But not only would I feel better about where I was, I've been through it every time I left CONUS in the Army. However some of them had guns and wanted me dead.

Only downside I see is finding an alternate way to treat my pain without Marijuana (fuck getting caught over there with that). I'm not sure how easily I will be able to find medical treatment either being a Gaijin.

I really think you should work a labor job or something to generate enough cash to at least visit first. Round trip flights aren't that expensive, around $1k CAD when I checked the other day, probably cheaper for you if you're American. Spending four years studying to pursue something could make you build that idea up in your head like it's going to save you, and if it isn't what you expect you've spent the rest of your twenties chasing a dream that didn't happen.

Do it OP! I've always wanted to go to Japan ever since getting into haiku. Teaching English is a great way to travel, I have many friends who have done just that. Work out the little things once you're already there, it's easier to figure things out in person.

There's an old story that goes something like this-

There were two monks who agreed they wanted to leave the monk life behind and go travel. They said "we'll go in summer." When summer came they didn't feel ready, and said "we'll go in winter." They continued this way for the rest of their lives, never actually traveling at all.

That's as best as I remember the story anyways. The point is, you'll always feel a need to plan and make sure everything goes just right. No matter what, you're never going to feel entirely ready. You've gotta push yourself out of your comfort zone and do what you want to despite your doubt. So go get a TEFL and get your arse to Japan, the rest will work itself out in due time!

You can easily go work in Japan teaching English, 3 of my friends did that for years, though If I were you I'd learn how to program video games in school instead, then work remotely from Japan for a US company since you're American. You can sit on your couch in Tokyo earning USD to remotely develop mobile games for some shitty silicon valley startup.

Japanese real estate (outside major cities) is pretty cheap, like $100-300kl buys a nice modest house as Japanese don't consider buying a house a good investment, it goes down in value unlike everywhere else on earth where property speculation is rampant.

Navigating in a big city is next to impossible even for long term residents. Every street looks the same, and the names are painted (sometimes barely) on the walls of corners there's no street signs. There's apps now to help you, and a Tokyo Subway app to figure out the complex system (pic attached).

Majority of Japanese also detest foreigners in general since forever. There was protest when AirBnb started because "it encouraged more foreigners to come here". They will tolerate you if you don't try to imitate them too much but don't be surprised if some people treat you always as a outsider it's just the way they are. Seems logical you should actually throw out your assumptions of Japan and go there first to see it first hand before drawing out a specific plan to live there.

Alright, it's on.

I'm hitting the road with $300 in my pocket.
I'm tired of this life, and as such, I've decided to take matters into my own hands.

I have a traveling buddy that's been to 40 states across America, and experience to go along with it.

What should I expect, and what should I do to prepare.

Also, park far away from the building on the edge of the parking lot. Those faraway spaces are used by a lot of car sleepers. I've only been bothered by cops twice after sleeping at Walmart, and neither time was I parked on the far outside edge.

Well... at a Walmart in North Carolina a security guard caught me climbing into the back of my truck and he said "You're not allowed to sleep here. Just warning you, the cops will give you a ticket," but that's the only Walmart out of probably 80 or 85 I've slept at that kicked me out.

>>33152 churches during weekdays (basically as long as you aren't staying there saturday night and waking up to the sunday rush) can provide a good place to park a car.

I've done it a few times with no issues. park off in the most secluded corner of the church parking lot and kind of out of the way. i've never been discovered, I imagine if I were to be discovered it would most likely be someone from the church and church people tend to be pretty friendly/hospitable

dunno what the specific legality of this is in Canada and I've never done it in the states so might be good to look up some laws regarding the state you're in.

Hey /vroom/, I have a car that's probably on it's last year of life that I need to start looking to replace. I'm looking to buy cheap but not-horrible. So far I'm surprised that the Fiat 500 actually doesn't seem like that bad of a choice. Of the mini-cars it the one I would consider the least ugly, the gas mileage seems decent, I has some room in the back to store some limited gear, it even has a manual 5-speed transmission, seems pretty alright. The only thing I don't like about it is that, as with all minicars, I know if I get into a collision I'll definitely get my potatoes mashed, but you're never really safe on the road anyway so whatever.

I'll probably go check one out for a test drive in the next couple of weeks but I wanted to get some unfiltered opinions, anyone have experience with these? Are they secret shitbirds or are they decent enough to commit to for 4 or 5 years?

The fully-loaded models can be decent but the stripper models are pretty horrible imo. Like, they use trunk liner as carpeting and it feels like it has a lawnmower engine in it. You can do a lot better for ~$15,000 than a Fiat 500.

yeah came to say this. you don't get as much for your money when buying a fiat vs buying a japanese/korean subcompact, at least in NA. i dunno if you're in europe and prices are different over there...

I was looking at 3 & 5 door cars like 2 years ago and went with a 5 door mazda 3. the fiat was more expensive, had fewer features & similar gas milage. i think the fiat looked nicer, but that wasn't worth the extra money to me. Maybe look into the Mazda 2?

my 2nd choice was the toyota prius c. i went with the mazda just because it looks nicer, was considerably cheaper and had a much bigger boot. if i could have afforded it, i would also have considered the lexus cth. i have friends with toyota yaris, and they take a licking and keep ticking. it doesn't look as nice as the fiat, but it's also way cheaper & similar gas milage.

Is the most dangerous part of a city? In the US most city centers have a dangerous lower class neighborhood bordering it on at least one side while the suburbs being more affluent, hence the term "inner city" being synonymous with gang violence and crime. While in Europe the city center is more affluent and typically the poor are pushed out to various suburbs.

In some cities the entire city itself is dangerous, because all the jobs are gone and it's just a depressing poverty stricken hellhole full of meth addicts robbing people in broad daylight like Rocky Mount, NC, Danville, Virginia. Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Harrison, Arkansas and Atlanta. Atlanta has sort of tried to clean up itself but even if you ride the Red/Gold MARTA during the day you're likely to have 10 doorag headed, wannabe gangsters get on and rob you at gunpoint.

From travelling around shitty cities and living in my own shitty city I find public transit stations at night and early morning the most dangerous as criminals tend to rob people and jump on trains to get away, and there are drunks everywhere looking for fights/sexual harassment. Following that any shit tier neighborhood should be avoided both for the violent local inbreds and the police who will harass anybody normal looking going into those neighborhoods because "you must be here looking for drugs" so you get both cop and degenerate mugger double whammy.

Pretty much this. But here my town I think it's going to change. The city center is full of immigrants and crime is going up, it's just a question about time since the shitheads among them start acting out. And seeing as our asylums are overcrowded shithead-factories, I'd give it a year or so.

So, I was turning left from a 2 single lane road into a parking lot, and a car about 30-40 feet away from me who was speeding turned into the parking lot as well.

The speed limit is 15 mph, he was going around 35, because of this he sled when he tried to reduce his speed. I was getting ready to park while he was sliding, and he rammed into the my back passenger tire. And he had studded tires and it's not that slick out, if he were going 15 mph no way he would slide.

He told the campus cop (it was at a university) that I cut in front and he didn't have time to break. The cop assumed I was bullshitting when I said he was speeding and put me at fault on the report saying I should have yielded despite me already being in the parking lot.

The guy was a bit older than me and I think he had more pull with the cop, especially because he got his side in first.

If he files a claim, I'm pretty much fucked, right?

It's a tough call to make honestly because to me, it sounds like both of you are at fault. Yes, the other driver should not have been speeding but making a left turn in front of an oncoming car going 35mph that's only 3 car-lengths ahead of you is dangerous as fuck. Just because he was breaking the law doesn't give you a pass for driving aggressively and cut him off. You literally saw him coming up fast and you put yourself in front of him on purpose. That's your fault.

Like I said, it's a tough one to call. Best case scenario I see is that you both get tickets but the only way the other car could get faulted would be if your state has a "failure to prevent an accident" law and even then, the skid marks he left from slamming on his breaks and skidding into you will probably only prove he did in fact attempt to stop and prevent an accident.

I'd actually go against the other people and say you should have got pictures of his studded tires because those things are only for snow and ice. They're notorious for being detrimental to tire traction on dry and wet roads and it's my armchair opinion that he probably wouldn't have hit you if he had the correct tires for the road conditions.

My wife just got her license and we're looking at buying her first vehicle.

She wants a small pickup truck, manual transmission, (a must) preferrably an import, or at least something we can get a kit for that isn't obscure as fuck.

We looked at a few Nissan Frontiers - they're close, but not quite what we want. The GMC Sonoma pictured here is where we ultimately want to go with the pickup truck.

Any suggestions on what we should buy, would be great.

Chevy S10 if you can find one. Failing that, get the Toyota Hilux (AKA the Tacoma in the states.)

I'd recommend the Toyota over the Chevy.

Not that sporty but very reliable and very good looking (at least for me) you could get a Nissan D21 (Hardbody in the states).

Oh and don't worry for the aftermarket or availability of spares, you have a big enough selection to keep it alive for ages.

is where I got the lift for my Nissan D21 hardbody. It can clear 33's now.
Or you can get a 2x4 and drift truck, because d21 has a KA24E in it. E's love boost, and blow up, but they love kit.

In Ontario we call it a Front-End Loader but when I Google that I only bring up 'dozers, so that's useless.

Also, if anyone could weigh in on whether or not this could potentially tow 2400KG over rough grade, that'd be a huge help too.

Thanks!

The front-end loader and the backhoe are ATTACHMENTS for the tractor in OPs picture. Shits common as fuck on farms.

My bro is a diesel mechanic who works on these every day, what you have here is a tractor with a bucket on the front and a backhoe on the back (sometimes also referred to as an arm and bucket). Now depending on a few factors we can make a guess if you can tow the 2400KG load. If its a farm tractor such as a smaller private model like a John Deer, mahindra, Kubota ect. Then I would give it a shot but I would be doubtful on smaller models or low displacement engines. Now if its like an industrial model such as a Case, CAT, or Hom you have a better shot assuming its the diesel motor not the gas and its one of the more sizable models. Even a small skid steer could work if used correctly you just need one with the right motor. If you can you could look up the model you are working with and check to see what engine it has and how much torque that engine pushes out. If it has a ton of torque then more likely than not you can pull it. Now this information is all really general and from a stranger on the internet so clearly double check what I have said (as I could be mistaken or flat out wrong). Anyway Im gonna go smoke weed because I just realized I am a tractor nerd.


p.s dont forget to make sure the shackle and chain or tow strap you use is rated for what your pulling, also make sure you put a blanket over the chain or cable if thats what you end up going with.

Anyone have a clue what this is? I'm barely handicapable when it comes to cars so any help would be greatly appreciated.

This piece is off a 2002 jaguar s-type.

Mostly bad grounds and corroded connections on the older ones.The newer ones (2000 up) are actually worse,the wire insulation is brittle & breaks in the damndest places (usually not visible without taking things apart.)Have fun.

The only ones I haven't been to are Vermont, New Hampshire and Alaska.

I'm not sure about Utah actually. It's possible I've driven through it as a kid.

But you've been to Maine? Well, I guess you could've flown in, taken a boat, or entered from Canada.

The only states I've yet to visit are Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana, South Carolina, Delaware, Connecticut, and North Dakota.
