To go on an adventure

so, basically, I'm bored as shit and feel like I wanna travel literally everywhere, and once I'm finished I return to the states. So I wanna go Adventuring and see the world, first starting in the US, then Canada, then I start going south of Texas all the way to the very tip of South America, then I'll figure out the rest when i get there.

HOWEVER, I'm jobless and broke as absolute frick (like barely $2000 to my name) and would like to possibly rent, buy, or steal some sort of large vehicle for the trip.
What are some good ways of obtaining such a vehicle near the Alabama/Georgia border

    Not happening, anon. You can't be both a brokegay traveler and a traveler who demands luxuries unaffordable to the majority of people.
    If you want to make it to Patagonia, forget Texas; head to Miami, then fly one-way to Bogota. Hopefully the Colombians don't demand proof of a return ticket. If you are both humble and frugal, $2000 will go a very long way in your trek south, but Colombians are a very low-trust society, so don't expect luxuries like free furnished rooms or meals with the family in a private home. You'll be sleeping in a migrant shelter and trudging the road shoulder with the venecos. The privations and slights you endure will help you appreciate the privileged life you have in America. I recommend it.

      I've actually had that exact treatment in parts of latin america that don't get much gringo tourism. This is especially true when they learn I can speak ok spanish and communicate.
      A hotel owner in the middle of nowhere in Colombia near the Ecuador border took me to his humongous ranch after noticing the arrival of gringos. Drove us around the place in a Toyota pickup and wouldn't let us leave, kept offering us food, wienertails, cigars, had a million questions, we were planning to stay like an hour but were there the entire day. I guess one of his kids was going to college in Texas but he had never been to the US.
      $2000 might be enough to bus it from Colombia to Argentina staying in cheaper hotels and hostels not including airfare. A decent hotel in that region runs around 20-50/night, a cheap shithole under $25 and a hostel can be under $10.

    Just a lurker, but I’m in a similar position to you in terms of $$$ and I dunno even if I’m equipped with traveling 6 hours from home either. Been job searching for a lot of reasons, but one of them is to finally travel alone with my own money.
    I can’t be a good advisor, but I do ask, do you think you can handle below $2000 for traveling? I don’t mean like with luxuries, but with a couple payments here and there…

    How do travelheads balance work and travel? Can you just do away with work (or at least conventional work) and only travel? I am long-time unemployed and only want to travel. No work.

      Depends on what you mean by "conventional" work. I've heard of people using workaway to get part-time jobs helping some rural farmer for a month (Apparently they get free shelter and food) then frick off to another country and repeat the process. I'm in the same situation as you and IMO working a few novel jobs with the natives isn't in the same ballpark as wage slaving. Once I finish (or flunk) college, i'd like to try it

      Only people able to do this are those who come from wealth/got some inheritance, own their own home which they can rent out while travelling, have lucked out on crypto/trading or are somehow playing the social welfare benefits system in one or more countries while they are away travelling.

      99% of people are not in a position to travel and just not work at all.

        Yeah you get what 2-4 weeks out of an entire year? How miserable. What not a way to live.

          Have fun being "long-term unemployed" then. See how that works out for you in the long run.
