Hello all,

I'm a 25 y/o Male currently living in Los Angeles who is looking to backpack/settle down (?) in the Caribbean and/or South Pacific this coming January.

Basically I've been working in the film industry for the last 4 years and need to get myself out of L.A. I'm an aspiring screenwriter and feel it is time to get out of the rat race for a bit and explore this world I know so little about. Besides, who can think of anything better than spending their days writing under the shade of a palm tree with a tropical drink in their hand? Not me. =)

So, I'm looking for someone/group to get together and basically thumb our way to wherever we end up. Not planning on bringing much cash with me, but if I find my Eden I will have enough to start a new life.

Who is up for adventure? Tie too tight around your neck? Have no clue what to do with your life and want to explore the world with a cool, laid back, responsible guy with a good sense of humor? Excellent, drop me a line with any ideas and we'll get the planning stages started.


P.S. Even if you aren't interested in coming, I am quite open to any suggestions of an island community where an American/Whoever won't find it too hard to find employment doing just about anything that will provide food/lodging. I have a good work ethic and won't turn my nose up at anything, so I'll take all feedback!
