    Is it worth ditching my tarp for a bivy?

    I would strongly reccomend a bivy (only one worth getting is an army surplus gortex bivy, look thos 4 words up on amazon.) Theyre a little pricey but well worth it, i consider it essential when riding freight. So much better for stealth camping then stringing a tarp and adds 10-15 degrees of...

    How has life on the road been since Covid 19?

    Freight traffic has been pretty consistant in my exoerience lately. I just landed from riding from NY to PDX on the bnsf lowline/MRL. (Tho im waiting onmy sbd in pdx right now and its nowhere to be seen). Free buses have been a real boone! I rode seattle to Tacoma for free then caught out from...

    Years in the brush changing to teaching others brush bunny skills

    Sounds like a dreamy setup! Having no vehicle acess is legistically challenging but i so much prefer the peace of not being around cars/road noise. Being canoe based is one of my aspirations too. I was considering coming out but when i hopped out of chicago my train took me on thru iowa then...

    Earning my way into Israel

    Hey thanks for bringing up the point around US colonization. Its a very important point that we are all standing on stolen land and i think that the only move towards integrity for non indigenous folks that are born here is to develope relationships of mutual aid and struggle in solidarity with...

    Earning my way into Israel

    Kinda random that you'd be trying to move there dobt ya think? Id consider looking into it from a more for a humans rights\palestinian liberation perspective. Israel is a hyper militarized settler colonial project that continues to displace people, violate human rights and international law...

    Featured In time of plague; riding freight and roaming

    Hey thanks, not a man btw tho. The ride through colorado was definitely the coldest part but I packed for winter riding. Several layers of wool, jacket, winter gloves, 3 pairs of socks etc, hot hands and a propane stove for tea. I was comfortable the whole time even when getting snowed on. I...

    In time of plague; riding freight and roaming

    I'd like to share some photos of my travels this spring. I'm not usually one to post stories of what I'm up to but feel this can be some contribution considering the forums here have aided me in my travels. After spending a week in Salt Lake city Utah going to strange dystopic hotsprings, a...

    is anybody picking yall hitchhikers up in the plague?

    It seems like its bringing out both sides in folks. I've been hitching for 3 days in TN making incredibly slow progress. Waiting hours longer for rides than I usually do. But also have gotten two 10's and someone kicked down a 20 today *not even flying a sign just thumbing on the onramp*...

    corona virus: leave town and go to the woods a bit

    Damn I've been relying on the idea of being able to escape lockdowns by riding freight. Could you post the source? Are all the railroad companies cutting back?

    S.O.A.P. Fest in the woods of Oregon!

    That sounds rad, wondering if you have more details. Private land or national forest? Communal kitchen? Do you know who the organizers are?

    Poking the Campfire

    Hey There! just thought I'd introduce myself to any of the west coast wanderers. Been wandering around the west coast and the deserts of the south west for a couple years. Wintering here on the North Coast, trying to set up and squat a house right now. I'd love to talk with folks familiar with...
