I'm starting an extended road trip in my camper van tomorrow.

I'm doing this because I'm pretty sure I have avoidant personality disorder and every tactic I've tried to force myself to interact regularly with people I know has failed. Anytime I socialize with people my brain just goes into fucking retard mode afterwards and keeps summoning up memories of things I did that I rationally know are no big deal at all and giving me horrible anxiety over them. It's worse with people I know and care about. My rational mind is a slave to my emotions; I'm just not strong enough to push through. I figure at the root of the issue is a lack of self esteem and a lack of self control. I think I can work on both by training martial arts and getting out of my room and acquiring more life experiences.

In the past when I tried to take martial arts classes I always felt like I embarrassed myself and wasn't able to make myself go back. On the road I can just go to a new place and start all over fresh each time, abusing free trials so I don't have to pay for the lessons. It will be a good way to get some exposure therapy while still satisfying my avoidant tendencies. Regular interactions and friendships will come later hopefully.

My first destination will be Florida to wait out the coldest part of the year, then I'll start heading west to California and then go north up the coast as the seasons change so I stay nice and comfy. Looking forward to that legal weed out west. I have some tools I can use to earn some money and some savings, so I hope I can keep it going for a while.

I guess I just made this thread so I have somewhere to talk about what happens, although anyone else is free to talk about similar experiences ITT. I hope you don't mind some blogposting. Wish me luck.

Yeah, kind of this. I can't really gather from your OP what kind of mechanic knowledge you have, but honestly I'd have expected someone traveling out of a van or camper to have enough mechanical know-how to be able to fix most basic fixes such as alternator, starter, minor engine repairs, electric work/soldering and wiring.

I've been doing all of my own car repairs for the last 2-3 years now and have hundreds of dollars of tools, but I still wouldn't feel comfortable traveling cross country try in a motor vehicle.

Sorry to hear about your trouble, op. Best of luck to you though, and definitely do everything you can to brush up your mechanical/plumbing skills haha no harshness intended. If you ever have any questions about car stuff or plumbing ask them here, I might even be able to help some.

I went to my first martial arts class today. Their website said no gi grappling was today, but it was actually gi BJJ so I borrowed one. It went alright but one of the purple belts that showed me stuff gave me a look like I was an idiot when I kept screwing up and said a few polite but condescending remarks. I know I need to grow a thicker skin since this is nothing, but it still bothers me. I just nodded along when the owner talked about pricing, it made me feel kind of guilty because I knew I wasn't going to ever pay him anything.

I guess I could learn all that shit, but I don't really want to. I can just earn money from doing things I know how to do already and pay people who specialize in that. That's the whole point of capitalism. The way I figure, I just need to work 6 days to pay for all the repairs I had people do so far. That's not so bad. I hear there's a lot of home improvement work to be done in Florida because of the hurricanes. I can probably find something.

i hate discussing martial arts on the internet because for every person doing traditional classical training there are 1000 MMA monkeys with primitive opinions, and most people never even consider people might train for different reasons. but if you seriously want to develop martial skill you need to pick 1 art and stick to it for 5-10 years before switching. hopping across dojos will give you a preview of many different teaching styles, combat strategies, and dojo cultures but it will be like trying to climb a mountain by testing out 40 different trails and only going a few steps up each trail. not to mention a deep relationship with your martial arts instructor is a part of the whole thing. you'll never get to an advanced level through bum-scamming. not saying your idea is bad but just have this in the back of your mind. still better to bum-scam your way across a variety of schools than to never learn anything. maybe after your trip you can focus on the style that appealed to you the most. in my opinion the farther back your instructor can trace their lineage (preferably to asia), the better.

also one flaming burning searing red flag of DO NOT WANT is if they have any form of "junior blackbelt." that is a warning sign they are willing to compromise their integrity for the sake of money. this is big in karate and taekwondo due to how many diluted mcdojos are out there.

I went to a Mardi Gras parade last night in Fairhope AL. It was an intensely lonely event for me. Seeing all those people with their friends and families while I was all by myself was pretty horrible. There weren't a lot of bars around and no open containers or anything so I stayed sober (I don't really like alcohol anyway) so I was unable to really talk to anyone.

They kept throwing things, mostly beads, at me from the floats even though I never once put up my hands or yelled because I had no desire for any of the things they were throwing. I must have ended up with nearly a hundred bead necklaces that I don't know what I'm going to do with. The floats were kind of neat but I'm just sitting here in my van feeling pretty depressed and eating junk food and I have no desire to go to another one. I was going to drive to New Orleans but all the parades today there are in the morning. There are more parades in Mobile, but I'll probably skip them too. It was just too lonely and depressing and not that much fun to be surrounded by people who are actually having fun.

It reminds me of why I dropped out of college. I was constantly surrounded by people having fun with friends while I remained alone, unable to make any connections with people and it depressed me to the point where I couldn't get out of bed.

Ok so I made a post a few months back talking about a trip I've been planning around the world on practically no money.

Well I'm doing it! I'm in Venice Italy right now. I arrived super late and ended up just dropping 20 euro on a hostel because I've been hitchiking for 5 days and was to tired to hunt down a squat in the dark.

I've been couch surfing and wwoofing as well as busking some street art. I make those outer space scense with spray paint that the tourists fucking love. On a good day I make like 20 euro. Even on my worst day I make 5-10 euro ( i keep writing euro because my pc dosent have a euro button because it was made in murica and im to lazy to look up the ascii code.)

Ive met tons of cool people from various walks of life.

The other night I pitched my tent in a traffic circle on the highway that had a lot of bushes. I got bored and wandered to the gas station where i met some homeless chick who was waiting for a ride and we hung out and she shared this huge ball of hash with me, i gifted her with a painting.

I'll write more detailed adventures and post cooler pics in the future. But right now i have to take my first shower and a shave in a week. I look like shit.


Pic is me and some distraught locals who hosted me for a week.

Just got to a cybercafe near fort de nogent. I got sent out for an x-ray of my legs, but on account of the fact of not being able to pay for it, I'm headed back to the states. My advice to those thinking about joining is to go to Aubage and not Fort de Nogent or any of the other selection centers; If you go to a FFL office, they will most likely bring you to Nogent where they take 2-3 weeks to run the tests they run in two days at Aubagne.

And he hasn't entered training yet? Why would they need x-rays? That's usually when you have shin-splints from too much running. Can't he just go ask random frenchies and show them the bill? "Hey French guy! Halp pay bill, I need go kill people for you!"

Hello everyone. I have a loaded question today. For context, this is for US citizens that only possess US passports. We could also talk about other Western countries, but apart from the UK or US I'm not particularly interested.

First and foremost I have never been suspected of any crime, nor is my passport revoked in any way. However, with a combination of the possibility of trumped charges and other concerns within my lifetime, I am heavily interested in discussion the extradition status of overseas countries.

Anyone can use Google to read which countries officially have "no extradition agreement" with the US or the UK.

To assume this as gospel is insane.

I want to hear from people knowledgeable on the issue.

Preferred countries:

>no formal extradition treaty with US (you can leave out countries that have them but don't enforce them; not worth the risk IMO)

>HAVE THE BEST DEPORTATION LAWS.

Where can I learn about the bike gears? (1-3) & (1-6)

What is there to know about general bike upkeep? Like checking tire pressure and making sure everything is lubricated

Are there any resources about "pimping out" and modding bikes with accessories and that sorta stuff?

Bike gears have a lot of overlap. Mostly you want to set your front cog (1-3) based on the general slope of the terrain and make fine adjustments with the rear (6).

Like a soldiers rifle, keep your bike clean. From both a psychological and a physical perspective it will work better and faster.

This channel here shows a good 5 min bike clean, good guides for all kinds of repairs can be found here.
For most repairs I think its better to buy the tools and DIY, It will save money in the long term, and will give you a better understanding of your bike.

Personal advice: buy a chain length checker tool and use it every few months, replacing your chain when necessary. Eventually your chain gets longer as it wears, and this chain will gradually destroy the gears. Replacing gears and chain is expensive and arduous, so avoid it!

Started with a diamondback hybrid frame($75) and added a bafang 750w mid-drive motor with 52v 6ah lithium ion battery. I have my headlight integrated, but not taillight yet. I will give a final build report when I have all of the running lights working and probably upload a video as well.

I use this to commute to work 5 days a week, 13 miles each way. I currently average about 21-22 mph following red lights and stop signs with cars present (why stop at 3am?).

Hey I have the same kit. I'm very happy with it. You should order the programing cable and tune it. You can get a lot more range. I have an 11 mile commute and I haven't touched my car since I installed the motor.

Hey /vroom/,

So I've been saving money for a year now and living cheap at my parent's place with the general plan that "I'm going to go travelling when I feel ready." Well, I have around 10,000 saved and am feeling pretty ready to go out and do something!

So initially I thought of backpacking for a few months, but plane tickets would eat up most of my savings and then when it's over it's over, time to save money again.

Then I thought of two other things I'd like to do - living in an RV or a Sailboat.

I have years of experience with both RV camping and Boating, so I'm pretty confident on the technical side of things. I guess why I'm posting is just to get it out there - fuck it, I think I'm gonna drive down to the beach after christmas and trade my car for a sailboat and start following the coast!

I work online and don't need 24/7 internet access so long as I can connect every few days to upload documents and answer emails. That and I'm open to the random odd jobs on shore.

Anyone on 420chan ever done the liveaboard thing? What was your experience?

Boat got absolutely fucked in the storm!

You know, it’s a sort of miracle coincidence that I left when I did, because Harvey swallowed the Texas coast and destroyed everything. I would’ve been leaving whether I wanted to or not.

Pic is a photo my friend from the marina sent me of my boat.

So here’s the deal, I actually REALLY miss sailing! So I’m going to buy another boat, with any luck another Catalina 22 and keep it on a lake and get back to sailing. Not gonna liveaboard because I have a neat apartment downtown and am having a hell of a time doing the city life thing lately.

The adventures continue!

I sold the boat for cash before leaving the island so it doesn’t matter, a drunk guy asked who I was selling the boat to when I was moving out and I told him “you if you want it” so he went to an atm and I handed over the papers. Never actually registered it with the state so it was easy.

The left pedal manually pressurizes the blinker fluid before start-up.

Clearly a European-market truck. The Finnish word "prndl" meaning "quality" is clearly marked on the dash.
