This thread is dedicated to all the tramps, rubber tramps, and crack spangers out there; as well as an attempt at a Hitch Hiker's Guide to America.

Please add anything you can think of.

Hitch Hiker's Guide to the States


Two outfits (hitch hiking) clean and dirty. Dirty-spange and crack spange, clean gear is to catch rides.

Gas is free. Crack spange the lot until you reach your goal. Once the goal is hit, pull into the pump. Wait at least ten minutes (never really timed it) to see if someone will fill you up. When it's seen that you were really asking for gas money people are more likely to fill up your tank themselves when given the chance.

Now you have money for cocktail hour or future gas.

If you have more than one tramp doing bum stuff, diversify. Drop a sign flier at an on ramp, a crack spanger at a walmart, and get a juggernaut to work the gas station.

Gimmicks are useful. Mine was the taped up glasses. But even a bad hair cut should do the trick, or a black eye.

Use a script. It's just like working the phones except you're selling yourself. Your personality. So let that come through. Robots don't make sales or spange full tanks of gas, but people do.

Cardboard Aviation- sit no less than two car lengths behind the stop line on an off ramp. The sign should be visible five car lengths back.

Make sure the off ramp leads to an area with at least a walmart but more upscale restaurants and stores are a better bet. Chic fi let is good and so is starbucks.
>>
>>1281900
Eye contact- avoid. Pick a spot to stare at and don't take your eyes off of it. Use peripherals to know when something's coming.

Never let the spoils of spange show. I wouldn't give a flier food or money if he had a pizza sitting next to him. Always have a food and supplies caché that you can deposite extras to. Leave behind what you can't carry.

The sign says- hungry, traveling, please
GOD bless.

Use what works for you but that sign is a credit card. It covers all the bases.

Shifts- 30 minutes to an hour. After that, switch out with your partner or take a short break. Faces get old fast and social media makes it that much harder to get by like this.

Shifts- morning, noon, evening, night. Go with the 9 to 5 flow.

Idle spange- sit in front of fast food joint and give it your best thousand yard stare, just like the on ramp. People will unsolicited give kick downs. Make sure your gear is seen.

If you can't play an instrument start drawing/painting/ whatever in plain sight

Busk- if you can play, play. People love it. Even if all you know is "Isnt she lovely" buskers burn up spots slower and they are more respected than cardboard aviationists or crack spangers. Some can make tens of thousands in a month.

Geography- the south has the best kick downs. Idle spange can get you by alone in the bible belt. The further north and closer to the cities you are the more tools you'll have to use. The more creative you'll have to be.

The professional tramp who taught me this claimed to make 130 thousand a year.

The most the author has made in an hour is 160$. (Disclaimer: One eighty dollar half hour, did not stick around for the other half)


Anyone with a copy can and should add their tools to this tool box. Let this bare bones guide grow into something worth sharing.

Cleveland.jpg
418KB, 2000x1200px
I'm thinking of moving back home to the Cleveland, OH area. I have not lived there in 18 years or so. Because my parents divorced, I got the experience of bouncing around quite a bit living with them and other family members in Gates Mills, Euclid, Cleveland Heights, the city proper, Mayfield Heights, Wickliffe, Willoughby, etc. and elsewhere. I have friends all over the city, but I think I have been in Northeastern Ohio maybe four or five times in 18 years. So, I have no fully-fleshed out perspective on it whatsover other than fond memories, biased friends, and family members that aren't that hip or knowledgable.

What's a good place to live in the city or more particularly near the city these days? I ask because a friend of mine has said Richmond Heights and Lyndhurst have gone down the tubes. Another friend said Euclid is starting to gentrify. I hear conflicting things. I think my friends, while my friends, are a little biased.

I need some perspective here. What are the no-go zones of Cleveland? Or the areas in which one would not want to live...aside from the obvious East Cleveland, St. Clair, Wade Park, Flats, Hough, Scovill, etc. the worst parts of the city that are relatively common knowledge.

Oppositely, where would one want to live in Cuyahoga County, Geauga County, Lake County, Lorain County, and/or Medina County? Let's say I wanted to live somewhere safe, somewhat rural, classic Ohio college town kind of feel (Ohioans will know if they visited someone at Miami, Kenyon, Oberlin, etc.), good place to raise a family, somewhat affluent, culture is within reach, cozy living, etc.

Any Greater Cleveland anons?

I live in the Warehouse District downtown. It is pretty cozy and reasonably cheap given the fact that I am a block away from my office/grocery store/etc (my building is in this image).

It sounds like you're aiming to live in a suburb so this probably wouldn't be appropriate for you. I grew up in Hudson which sounds like it would be a good fit. Chagrin Falls is similar. WRA (my high school) is at the center of Hudson and definitely gives it a college town feel, although Hudson schools are also highly ranked.

Cleveland in general has been getting a lot better over the past 5 years. Besides what you mentioned there aren't really any serious no-go zones that I'm aware of. You wouldn't really have any business going anywhere dangerous anyway, although there are rare incidents in Ohio City/Tremont.
>>
>>1281982
Chagrin Falls and Hudson are both lovely. I'm surprised. I left in 98 or so. A lot can change in almost twenty years. A friend told me Richmond Heights, Lyndhurst, and Mayfield Heights are all going down the tubes. It's hard to know what's true and what isn't.

I did a little research last night. I think if I could somehow miraculously work from home or telecommute in general, I would live in Novelty in Geauga Co. middle of nowhere lol

I am wanting to learn basic Chinese (mandarin) before next summer. When I learned basic Japanese I found easier when I learned the syllabary first (Hiragana and Katakana) as opposed to learning phrases and words first.

I am having trouble finding sources for Mandarin syllabary. Could anyone help me out with this? Thanks

If you want a depressing day out, Auschwitz. The salt mines are good, the castle on top of the hill is great and they have a firebreathing dragon statue, I did the free walking tour, which was a pretty good intro to the city and was quite fun and informative https://freewalkingtour.com/krakow/.

Kazimierz, the old jewish neighbourhood is the hip district and is packed full with amazing bars, restaurants and shops. Great food at great prices if you come from western EU

Romania or Bucharest

Which one is better to live in, and which is better to travel to? Is one strictly better than the other?

I'm retarded, I meant Budapest or Bucharest.
>>
Budapest to live in, Bucharest to visit.

Budapest is on a downward spiral, Bucharest gets better...

Clubbing is much MUCH better in Romania if you're into dance music. And it's cheaper. And you have much nicer nature in Romania, abeit real far from Bucharest.
Budapest is more compact, things don't necessarily work, but they tend to work a bit more than in Bucharest.
People's English is better in Romania.
If you're going there to study, your faculty might be world class in one school, shit in the other. So better look at reviews of that.

>>1280787
100% accurate.

So I'm going to China next week for a month long trip around the country and I feel like I'm starting to develop some anxiety here. Is it really a safe country for a female traveller? I know the murder rates are low, so I'm not THAT worried about it, but few things bother me:
1. How bad is the traffic? I mean I know it's bad, I've read like hundreds articles about it and it started to get me nervous. Not to mention that every day there's another liveleak video of Chinese people being run over on the streets or dying in weird escalator accidents. Is it really that common? What are my chances of being in a road accident? My plan is to use a lot of buses and trains, as well as going on foot and using bikes in the countryside.
2. I'm not your typical Asian girl when it comes to looks. I'm busty, I'm getting a lot of unwanted attention even in my home country, I'm afraid it could be even worse in a country where most women have "boyish" figure. I'm even afraid someone might follow me and try to rape me or something. I'm being paranoid, right?
3. Is riding a bike safe in Chinese countryside? I'm talking here about Guilin, Yangshuo, Longji terraces. In my mind I'm being all alone on a field somewhere far away from towns and it freaks me out.
4. Are trains a safe option? Which are better, hard or soft sleepers?

Oh, and I'm sleeeping in hotels, not hostels btw.

Check out some temples and shit. Depending how long you're there for, you can hit up Larnaca, Nicosia, Limassol, and Paphos.

I was there like 20 years ago, but Ayia Napa was famous for nude beaches.

If you have a EU passport you can go see the northern side. Nothing that interesting but at least you get the novelty of being in a disputed territory.

I'm wanting to do more travel in the US, but I can't really afford a hotel room.

I have a 2015 Subaru Outback. Do you think I could get away with sleeping in parking garages in most cities?

If so, what kind of things do you think I should bring to make that a successful endeavor?

>Food
>"Bed"
>Privacy
>Washing Up
>Where should I park to ensure I have access to a bathroom?

I don't mind paying fees for parking, but I am worried about getting kicked out (or worse) by security. Maybe I could somehow make it so I'm not visible sleeping even to someone who scrutinized my vehicle a little bit?

In the more dense cities like NY, SF, Chicago, Boston, DC etc. it'll probably be cheaper to book a hotel (assuming you are flexible and willing to book way in advance) than get a parking spot.
>>
>>1280320
The bigger problem is getting carjacked and murdered. Wal-Mart parking lots in rural areas are probably safe enough, though. You can go in and buy a bottle of soda, then claim you fell asleep in your seat oops.

Anons,

doing a small roadtrip through Ireland next week.

- Landing in Dublin at 11 a.m.
- 1st night: Spanish Point
- 2nd night: Killarney
- 3rd night: Cork
- 4th night: Dublin

Need some tips:

1. Which road to go from Dublin Airport to Spanish point? M7 to have Cliffs of mother on our way? Or is M8 better?

2. Anything between Dublin and Spanish Point that we should see? Preferably close to the motorway.

3. Ring of Kerry or Ring of Beara - which one is better?

4. What else on our route is an absolute must-see?

No tips for Dublin needed as I have a local there.

Thanks!

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution.
Japan's sex industry is almost completely inaccessible to foreigners who do not speak Japanese.
What is available can generally be found in the following links
>http://rockitreports.com/category/sex-in-tokyo/
>http://erolin.net/
>http://rockitrisingsun.com/
>http://hentaitokyo.com/

*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.

>http://www.hyperdia.com/en/
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥

Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

Please refer to the old thread while it's still up: >>1275640

Let's have one of these...

Pretty straightforward:
Blue - Your country of residence
Green - Countries you've been to
Dark Purple - Countries you will visit soon (This year)
Light Purple - Countries you eventually plan to visit
Red - Countries you will NEVER visit
Grey - Undecided / Neutral / Not in your plans at the moment

This is a really weird map, by the way.

If you look closely, you can see that Hong Kong & Macau are visible as separate pieces of land, as opposed to just being part of China.

However, the same can't be said about Singapore. You can see Malaysia & Indonesia, but Singapore isn't clearly defined on its own.

I'm going to assume that's pic related? It's hard to say honestly...I'd say any of the areas of Ohio that were once affluent and all those historical homes that have been turned into low-income apartments. That depresses the shit out of me. Visiting family there wherever they maybe (Hamilton, Middletown, Cleveland Heights, etc.) and invariably there will be a beautiful historic district with stately mansions and beautiful properties and all of them could be on a historic register well preserved but instead it's a slummy part of town and they've been converted into condos and apartments

What are your experiences travelling/living in the middle east?

What countries do you recommend visiting?

Did you feel safe?

Especially interested in Israel/Palestine area due to my interest in conflicts.

What's it honestly like to live in California?

I feel like for me personally it's the perfect place to live. It seems like a dream place to live. Amazing weather, amazing scenery and nature.

Anyone here live or has lived in California?

I'm planning a road trip from southern California up to San Francisco in September.

Scenery and nature really doesn't make you happy in the end, anon. You get used to it in a few weeks and then after that you forget that you're surrounded by gorgeous mountains.

What makes a difference is the people around you, your friends, your family. And people in Southern California as well as San Francisco are some of the shittiest in the country.

SoCal is crazy materialistic and superficial.

SF is a tech monoculture filled with some of the biggest techie douchebags you could imagine.
