      Great to learn you survived noisy metro cities in India. There is no comparison of large, organized and sky scrapping towers in America/Europe but this is developing economy.

        Hmm! Even i am a punjaban btw..
        Juhu Chowpatty, yeah its ten minute walking distance from my place. super crowded till wee hours. Besides deep fried items, Rajasthani cuisine assembles very spicy ingredients that not many can gulp at one go. Punjabi is still all right, a yogurt drink (Lassi) can sooth mother of all indigestion's.

        See the traffic isn't friendly. I mean, plumes of smoke leftovers are very hazardous, i inhale warm steam to counter its negatives. Sometimes, go out in air conditioned cab but avoid long walks during high traffic. On personal note, life outside cities is great. Think Goa, Kerala but right now, Dharamshala (Himalayas) on my mind

      The online traveling world seems to rave about you. So tell me wizehop, where can I follow your whereabouts and learn more of your lifestyle? If you're still active that is

        Rave about me?!...wow, careful or that will go to my head :). Not sure what people have been referring to, but if you look up my name on youtube I have made a few travel vids and that's probably what they are going on about.

        Glad you liked the vids, if I'm ever down that way Ill let you know for sure. I have it half done but the footage is so far in between and not a lot so its been tough. I may just do a little segmant on it with a future vid. Its a bit tough filming yourself, and the people I travel with aren't really interested in the process so I never get enough to really work with...but Im making it a priority next trip

      Hey man, I didn't even know you were on STP! I've watched all your videos and I randomly saw you in chat haha. Well, hope all is well with ya! I just got back to my hometown after my first successful hop, thank you so much for showing me the basics but I'll tell you this... it was a lot different then I thought.

        Well, first the hours if not day I've had to wait just for a decent ride able car. I understand markers, but I still don't know how to read times tables like you taught us, and I went in really just riding blind, ended up leaving Scranton pa to somewhere in NY state, and then caught a train back to what I thought would be NYC

      Hey i was reading an article online about kids getting drawn into the vagabond/traveling culture through the internet and you were in it. Youve been in a youtube video i saw too, so its weird youre kind of a spokesperson for traveling folks.

      have you been to norway and taken the rails there? im trying to find out a lil info before i take a trip. i dont know much how things are here compared to the states
      1. wizehop
        wizehop
        No man, unfortunately I haven't made it there yet. Looking over videos quickly they don't look all that rid-able, and with the power cables overhead you cant ride on the roofs. I'm sure its do able, just be careful man. Otherwise the trains are kinda sexy and the scenery seems spectacular!

      I'm a subscriber to your YT chan. Looking for a road dawg for my first rail-ride.
      Don't think I am a yuppie cause I've never hopped freight. I am a Nomad through and through, having hitched well over 20,000 km in the last 15 years. Just want to learn from a pro. Hit me up and we can chat.
      Cheers!
      P.s. I'm currently in Calgary but only until spring.

      Hey dude, I'm a location manager in film and part time railroad bum in Los Angeles. If you ever take a show down here in the states or find yourself rolling through, drop me a line. Keep the videos coming. Your work is crack for a traveling soul.

        Nice dude, my girlfriend is an LM too. I'm working as a grip these days myself. Ya man Ill do that but it may be a bit before I'm down there as were planning a trip to Brazil, Colombia, then over to India and so on. To many film contracts in a row, I'm loosing my mind so gearing up for disappearing for a while.

    Right and wrong do not exist, neither does God - in any form - for that matter...we are governed by the chemicals in our bodies....understanding freedom of choice and self accountability is the bottom line...

    All this I have learned from riding freight

    Signature

    Freedom lies in pastimes that are a bit odd and slightly illegal!
