    Heading back to Albion, NY to work for a few,months. Been traveling since November, it's been fun but I'm looking forward to settling for a bit. I was just riding ending up random places. I like it @ntdxc1878 how about you?

    I'm the opposite actually. Working now so I can ride around for a while. Leaving once my pay checks come in.
    Ridin' trains through PA is some of the most spectacular scenery. Loved it.

    Yesssss! Yes underrated riding for sure. Sounds like Piedmont/Virginia/Harrisburg subs you probably weren't actually in PA that long. Coal trains in that region are super scenic but even slower than that junk you were on, they can stop for days and days.

    @FrumpyWatkins true. We were in VA, WV, and MD too which was also very scenic. But the ride through PA was really beautiful.
    CSX to Petersburg, VA...now stuck in two days of rain. Missing the warm weather in Florida...
    It sucks seeing old members delete their accounts...what has happened to this place?

    Yeah sometimes it takes me a while before I figure out who they are. I have not had time to be as active in chat though since I've been traveling. @Matt Derrick

    hmm... maybe i'll enable a tab on their profile that shows their previous user names... if that would be helpful?

    Yeah I think it would. Unless I am searching quoted posts or they told me who it was it can be hard to figure out.

    Tell me where you end up! I am in Bama and would love to help any, if I can.

    Thanks dude. I had to bail off the unit. I'm back on loaded coal. An engineer on a train sided out in the opposite direction hopped aboard. Luckily I got away. Wtf is that...anyway, I'm heading towards Huntsville. Whereabouts are you?

    Near Bham, so I may be a bit out of your way, especially if you're on coal. But, still, if you happen around this way by any chance, just let me know.

    Fuck yeah posted in rideshare on CL...some dude is rolling through might have a ride 1+ hour past Topeka. If not the road always has its way of making shit work out.
    Never underestimate winter and what it can do to your feet if you don't have the right boots.

    It was my own fault. Didn't realize how bad my boots were until I was in snow and ice. Take some time, but I should be good.

    Maybe a little late, but these boots will let you "go where no man has gone before." Sorry about your feet. Lose any toenails?

    Nah, just really swollen, red/white and tingly. The numbness is slowly going away, but it's painful. I don't think it's too, too bad. I'll be good shortly.
