I occasionally put up a paypal button because people keep asking me to so they can send money. Believe me, this site is free for everyone. I will continue writing no matter what. And I hate those scammy flashing ads that google would like to put up here so it will always be ad free. Being a motorcycling minimalist means that nobody would sponsor my riding anyway. I buy all of my gear on Craigslist. The only sponsors I need are the folks who like to read my travel tales and send me gas money from time to time.
