Zero. You just gotta be ok with lying about how many trains youv ridden, that way you'll fit right in with most people who have em. Also if you do get a dumb tattoo make sure those lines are curved otherwise you'll have a ladder tattoo and I'll be god damned if I see somebody else sporting my same tattoo.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
