    Looking for road dawg. Dallas to Maine

    Hey! I currently live in NY. I'm looking to learn how to train hop. I'm taking a short trip in August and coming back to NY. If you're around PA or New Hampshire around the end of August or early September, I'd be down to meet up and potentially catch a ride on the rails towards your next...

    Where do you leave your backpack when going into a store?

    Thanks everyone for all the replies! Yeah, the pack is your whole life so I see it's better to be safe than sorry, so it's best to bring it everywhere you possibly can. I'm understanding that the only exceptions being when you HAVE to take off your pack, but then you gotta leave it...

    Where do you leave your backpack when going into a store?

    Hey, this is a very simple and perhaps maybe even a dumb question. I'm wondering what you do with your pack when you go into a store or find a place to charge your phone or fill up water. Do you always keep your pack on you? Do you hide it someplace in the woods before entering a business...

    That's so cool! Let me know if you're every around these parts because I'd be so down for something like that... and I need to learn how to freight hop safely XD I've been wanting to do a triathlon.

    Hitchhiking/Train Hop to the Spartan Races

    I've got a unique vision in mind. I'd love to spend a few months-a year hitchhiking around the US from Spartan Race to Spartan Race. These races are fun, but also provide plenty of volunteer opportunities the days of the races (and the weeks prior building the course). Every time you...

    New here and looking for an adventure

    Hey Cole! Shoot me any helpful links you find on this site for train hopping! I'm looking to train ho as well in the future and I've read a few things about it, but the number one advice I keep seeing is to find someone else to show you the ropes so you don't get caught and you don't end up...

    Im Kevin, road thumb veteran

    Hey, I'm new to this site as well. Sounds like you've had a hell of a life so far with far more than a few stories to tell lol. I'm interested to know what originally got you hitching around the country when you were younger? What was the turning point in your life that made you take the...

    "Good morning, and in case I don't see ya: Good afternoon, good evening, and good night!" As you can probably tell already, I'm obsessed with quotes from my favorite movies, books, philosophers, and travelers. Almost every one of my Instagram posts is a quote from someone who has inspired me...
