Thinking of getting shirts made with lettering saying: Why Pay Amtrak? Hop a Freight for Free! Be cool to wear these inside a Amtrak station! lol And maybe bumper stickers. Think of sticking these on a Bull's back bumper!
Damn It! I've been thinking and debating about applying for a position as an Amtrash locomotive engineer! They have openings for Salt Lake City, UT and St. Cloud, MN. I know I got to go through training but I'll be on call 24/7? There goes my sex life and night time weekend parties! Screw that, I'll play with my train set-No Pun=No Joke!
Just a reminder: If you're in the Midwest area this coming weekend November 9th-10th. Trainfest at Wisconsin State Fair Park. I posted the information a while back on Events/Gatherings/Festivals here on StP. I will be there early Saturday morning before opening. (9am) HMU if you are going to be there. Discounts for military Veterans getting in! Hope to meet you there! I'll buy you a beer and hot dog or a brat!
Does anybody know a Shaggy? Met this guy at the Summer Solstice street party on Milwaukee's East Side this past Saturday busking. Has HOBO tattooed on his left fingers and RR on his left wrist and 211 tattooed on his right upper hand. I have a picture of him. Said he knew Stobe. Likes to hop UP. He's been busking on East Brady St. on Milwaukee's East Side. He said he saw me years ago outside UPs Butler Yards. I don't remember him though.
Ok, last year at Milwaukee's Comic Book Convention I hooked up with a publisher for my post apocalyptic book series I'm writing hoping to convert it to a comic book series but there would be too much work for that. So I'm thinking, how about a comic book series called: The Adventures of Crazy Hobo Johnny!
About myself hoping trains and meeting strange people. There would be drama, comedy and other stuff, how about characters from STP? By consent of course. I'm putting it down on paper.
OK, just got off work. Heading to the liquor store to get some beer and celebrate my Birthday today! If it's your B-Day today, Happy Birthday to u! 10 months to go before my lease is up and then I'm hitting the road big time! Already have plans for short road trips this spring and summer! Cheers & Beers!!!
