    Spices on the road

    I always keep some of those Taco Bell things and some of those little packets of maple syrup. Also if you mix Taco Bell sauce or siracha with peanut butter you can make a damn fine spicy peanut pad Thai kinda sauce for your ramen.

    News & Blogs Top 10 Bands for Oogles, Gutterpunks and "Travel Kids"

    I think even though not all traveling kids are punks it's a very significant part of the community and Very many of us get into traveling through punk and surrounding subcultures. Also filth is the fucking best. Also I'm suprised days n daze aren't on here. They are the biggest oogle band...

    Switchblades/automatic knifes

    I wouldn't Cary a switch because they are illegal in most states and even the ones where it's legal cops will give you shit for it (more than any other knives) and sometimes lie about its legality to try to confiscate it

    The weapon that makes you feel safe?

    I keep a small fixed blade on my side and its relatively intimidating if taken out but is never something I'd use for self defense. Knives take skill to manouver and are generally not great weapons for people with no training but they are very intimidating and if you just want to feel safe or...

    ?Which boot is "your" friend on the steel?

    I got kicked down a pair of grinders that I've been traveling with as of late and I really like. The soles are great on ballast and they aren't too heavy. The steel toes get pretty cold but I don't notice because I wear good socks. Plus they have had no water sneaking in and despite having...

    rethinking of the mss

    I don't know how all you heavy packers do it I hate it if my pack ever surpasses 30 lbs. I have done the two patrol bags together thing before. It's good but is wierd packing because to take up less space you have to have them separate and that means you have to put them back together each time...

    Easiest places to shop lift from in your opinion.

    Oh no I have been associated with hippiedom eew. Nah gotta steal markal for Puting my train tag on stuff. And sharpies for flying signs. Also they are in like every small town in the Midwest and northeast. Which is where I do a lot of my traveling.

    Easiest places to shop lift from in your opinion.

    Yeah Walmart for sure. Most the cameras don't work and everyone there hates their job. Same thing with michaels arts and crafts. In most stores the only part with functional cameras is the jewelry so if you can steer clear of that your basically good to go.

    2 packs, which is better for train hopping?

    That orange pack is the way to go more comfortable, good frame and more space. As far as color is concerned It will just become that muddy black brown color that all your other shit is once it's been on a few trains. An old road dog of mine traveled with an assault pack for a month and it was a...

    I think I have too much stuff

    Ditch the sleeping bag!?!? It is fucking winter even when you get SW it is cold as fuck at night plus we don't even know this kids methods of transportation.

    Please for the love of god ditch the drum you already have one instrument and it is a small one that not everybody hates. Also for sure ditch the sleeping pad (cardboard is free). If you feel comfortable without a tent I'd suggest leaving it as well because the bivy is waterproof and awesome. I...

    Tips for winter squatting?

    cardboard with blankets on top for the walls. the more insulated your sleeping space is the better. also getting a dog is great for heat and is a better friend than anyone else you could meet.

    Rockaway Beach

    The rockaways are real and are a free spot to sleep at. There are gangs but they won't bother you if you don't bother them.

    Tent, tarp or bivvy sac?

    For rain protection I'd say use a bivvy only if it's the military kind with no poles because those can be a pain to set up on a daily basis if not just use a tarp for sleeping bags you deffinately want a synthetic bag that goes to at least 0 degrees (Celsius I don't know Fahrenheit) for padding...

    I love skating and have for the past month or so been traveling with my board. I just strap it to my pack and take it off when I'm skating around.

    Turnstile hopping

    Often times you can just go through the wheelchair door but if not my preferred technique is pulling the turnstile back a bit and sliding yer legs through, stops that have the barred off revolving doors are relatively impossible to get into though so for those I'd suggest you just ask for a...

    you really need to make sure there is something keeping you off the cold ground the more that is the warmer you will be. if you can try to get honey comb style cardboard, it takes longer for the corrigation to break down and is better for insulating. stay warm and safe.
