    All I hear is trains...(Pt. 1)

    *Just a quick story about my first trainhopping experience* ;) I woke up at 2am, ready for the BNSF to Nola. I walk the line to where the yard is located(3 miles) and meet an old homeless dude(forgot name) that informs me that line only runs tankers to the chemical plants...pretty sure I’ve...

    The lifestyle: How did you start out?

    What made you start traveling? How did you discover this alternative lifestyle was for you.? For me i had read some books as a kid that lightly touched on the subject of tramping. At the time i was dead set on joining the military, i thought that was that best way to prove myself, enrich myself...

Now, we already know he is a train enthusiast, but can you imagine him as a train hopper. I myself have not "yet" done it. But can you imagine! Let us...

Have lots of friends down...

    Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like; a journey to Mexico to trip on some magical mushrooms! I plan to start somewhere North of the U.S.A; maybe even Canada and go down to Oaxaca Mexico to trip on some shrooms and record the whole process! Now some of you guys might ask: "Why are you going all...

    Hi, Mary Fox here

    Hi there kitties. I'm new to using StP, but not to the name nor traveling. I've seen most of the states minus the North East and southern Cali.
