Hi Coby!
Welcome to the forums man, I am a youngm beginner youtuber as well. I scoured youtube, and I couldn't find your channel! :( Could you give me a link? Also, as a minor myself, I can barely afford any type of ration. However for me it was really easy to start finding jobs in walking distance. If you really really want rations this bad, do everything. Take coke bottles and get the 5cents on it at the recycling center, sell newspapers, do garage sales, and mostly save. Don't blow it all in half a second the minute you have enough money to buy anything. Ebay is a great source for rations.

Also remember, you are new here. People are hesitant to send free stuff to somebody they don't know well. Also I have noticed an influx of people asking for freebees, which by no means is what I am saying you are doing in the least. I am just bringing to your attention that this is an expensive hobby. This is also a very tight knit community, we respect one other, and respect view points, ideas, and listen to peoples problems, and views. Get to know some people first, spend some time around the forum, post a couple videos, start the ball rolling. Once people see they can trust you, things will start to go your way. People will open up to you more. You can open trade routes per say.

I am not speaking for anybody on this forum here, but if I get to know you, and I see you are trustworthy, I know for a fact things will start showing up at your doorstep :wink:
But never expect things. Bottom line here is, the forums are not a place to get free things, more a place of community building and talking about rations. Simple as that. Keep up your youtube channel work, and again if I could see a link to your channel, that would be great!
Cheers man, and hope to see you around.

I have finally decided what I can do unfortunately I live in Michigan and it gets quite cold here and I don't have the right clothing rn to be a paperboy it's hard to ride a bike in the snow and when you don't have the right clothing to be out that long and all routes are taken,so I'm selling old items I don't use like my ps2 hopefully I can sell it for 180 and buy a case to start my channel

Hey man that's a great idea! You should be able to get 2 cases for 180, or talk to some guys around here, they can help you out with that type of stuff.
