When I want philosophy I'll ask for it, but the OP was to let people know where I'd be and that any help would be gratefully accepted...
ha ha. this is hilarious...
if anyone from the ''woodstock generation'' got on here asking for money to see their gf they would be getting the same treatment...

and as for gratefully accepting any help... well everyone who has replied so far has been trying to help you, but youre just being a wise ass...

I think that there is a feeling amongst the forum members that echos this video.

I wish I knew what started that whole thing. ^ Seems like the kid in the video deserved whatever beating was coming his way.

Anyways, OP, your trip sounds like fun. The begging for money sounds pathetic. It reminds me of the moron who came on here asking for donations so he can buy a Daytona. There were all kinds of promises about what he would allow you to do and how he would take your input on modding his new-to-him and free Daytona. It's disgusting, pathetic, and quite sad. Have your folks give you money next time, instead of coming here and asking for charity.

Did you honestly think that people on here would be willing to send you money so you can ride up a highway to go see your girlfriend? Here's a thought, if she wants to see you that bad, she can help you out. Get a job and take responsibility for your own actions.

Y'know, just the other day I was out for a ride when I stopped for a light at an intersection. There was a group of high school age guys asking for donations for their football team, holding out football helmets for people to donate.

You would think that a bunch of young, healthy, husky football players who need to raise some money could wash cars, mow lawns, chop wood, paint houses, clear land, haul trash, pick fruit, lifeguard, change oil, sweep floors, wash dishes, clean pools, etc., etc., rather than begging for a handout.

I will (and do) happily help those who can't help themselves, but people who are able to work but choose to beg instead can pound sand.

Trip is going great so far. Turns out I get better gas mileage than I thought so my paycheck has gas covered. I've been using a tent which has been nice. My O.P said if you would like to help that would be nice, but I was not begging, and the message was only for those who live along my route in Utah. You think I'd ask someone in South Carolina to wire me 40 bucks? On that note, Nobody has paid for anything except me, and hell, even some friendly locals have offered me food and lodging without me even bringing it up.

My jacket zipper broke and my front tire is on it's death bed, but otherwise the people on this forum could learn a thing or two about friendliness from the folks I've met here.

To try and steer away from the negaticity, will Dainese fix my zipper if I send it in to them? Yes I realize there's probably a cost.

Question everything
