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.

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?

I don't think I've ever seen an ATM that gives more than 400 per transaction and most banks, especially the ones a drunk guy would be using, won't allow many. if any, transactions after that so he couldn't have gotten that much for it.

I've sent too many cars off to charity or driven them to the scrap yard for the hundred bucks. It sucks and doesn't get you a new car.
Honestly, list it on craigslist if you have the title, as is
Or sell off some parts, look at ebay for examples, trim pieces, chrome grilles, door handles are gold to those who need them.
I mean, or whatever, the $95 will at least get you a cheap bicycle.

I don't know, man. I think you need to see what kind of style / topics fit you.

e.g. there's this guy on YT called Bald & Bankrupt, he makes these documentary/interview style videos. There's practically 0 editing. He went to Belarus, met locals, "blended in", talked with them. It's very real, I guess.

Good luck to you, these kind of videos are amazing if done properly!

How often do you think people are in a situation where 1) they want to get a new job and 2) they want to mvoe and 3) they cant decide where to move to?

Well I'm developing an app that cross-references a bunch of information for you in order to get an idea of where to go, generating a result like the picture <--


Personally, I've never traveled or had to decide on a city. So can you guys tell me what other cool metrics you'd be interested if you were searching?

Spend some time just riding the overground trains and check out the landscape. it's beautiful really and the more rural areas are great to visit especially if you can find the local attractions.
In cities the gaming arcades are a lot of fun too. Pretty much any arcade game you can think of is available if you want to just spend a day playing whatever you can.
If you find some company bar hopping is great too. there's a big variety

The average delay of a Japanese bullet train is just 54 seconds, despite factors such as natural disasters. If the train is more than five minutes late, passengers are issued with a certificate that they can show their boss to show that they are late.

I've been camping and traveling and living the vagabond life since 2015.
This is my thread on how to advice you on how to find a place to camp in nearly any city while traveling.

First you need to consider the weather and what you need from your camp spot.
Will it be cold, will it be windy, will it be wet, will it be dusty, safe etc?

You should also get familiar with several camping techniques and some light bush crafting skills such as how to make a lean to that can hide your tent for example, make small hard to detect fires and so on.

Once you have that you want to start scouting for a location.
This relies heavily on the country and town your in on what you should be looking for. I live in a very population dense city so the best options are on the edge of town for example.
A less populated city will allow you to live closer to town.

Usually long term actual homeless people take up the best spots that are also usually the most visual. They rely on their stigma in society to be left alone.
You don't have this benefit. So we need to look a bit further off the beaten path.

In Europe I find some of the best easiest to find spots are under inaccessible highway overpasses.
Not big major ones either as they are loud, viable and usually covered in litter.
Go to one that isn't visible from the road or is between a bunch of weird highway connections for example.
They are usually totally over grown and litter free.
No one will ever bother you there. You can stay for months on end with a full camp site.

For more in the city, look for abandoned buildings obviously.
Other wise head to your largest park.
>Example
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donauinsel

There are about 100 people or so living in this park full time. But most of them live in the far north part of it where no really goes much.
I managed to find a spot right between two walking paths that was about 1/4 and acre but it was so dense no one bothered going in. I hollowed out the center area with my hatchet and and made a small camp.
For stealth camping like this get a portable gas burner.
I stayed in this camp nearly 6 months totally undisturbed.

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?).

That's not really true, when you take into account infrastructure costs. Though, there's massive regional variation due to topography and weather variation.

I am afraid of driving. Being a driver, driving a car. I get neck cramps after around 20 minutes and it hurts, the steering wheel is just too sensitive so I always freak out "what if the electrical power steering malfunctions and the wheel goes haywire?" and I sweat profoundly. I tend not to think about "what ifs" but I still shit pants every time I get behind the wheel.

Buy a wider cushioned seat and seat cover it helps.

Im skeleton sinky and I use fat people seats because the stock seats are so narrow they like press up into my ass uncomfortably. They sell them any where they sell bikes.

I even had a really fat friend who needed to get a stronger stem (the bar attaching the seat to the frame) made of steel because the aluminum ones would bend. That may help.

Good luck man

How heavy you have to be to bend a stem? This is the first time I've ever heard such thing in my life. My guess is the aluminium was probably cracked or of really bad quality.
