2019 Trainfest Wisconsin State Fair Park (1 Viewer)

Jul 20, 2018
Milwaukee Wisconsin
Okay, I hoped the videos weren't making any of you dizzy the way I was working the camera! It's crappy in my opinion, I'm not a pro!

I met two interesting people at Trainfest. I spotted a young lady with a full ALICE backpack and her boyfriend with a duffle bag on his back.

I started a conversation with them, they took the Highline Route from Seattle, WA and came here to Milwaukee because they heard of the Trainfest event. I bought them both a lunch and had an interesting conversation.They never heard of StP but they said they'll look into it.

Anyway, there was no railroad bull here this year. They had Operation Lifesaver booth.

I did talk to the people who run Trainfest about me setting up a hobo display for next year. They said that would be interesting and they want me to email them with my plans in mind!

Okay, here's the videos and hey, thumbs up or down or it's crappy, I don't care! Thanks!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
