So I'm currently chilling in a hotel tub with a PBR and a Newport red listened to Johnny Hobo and the freight trains. Been in the road well over a month. It's my first trip around on trains and it didn't start off well. Leaving from NoLa west and wound up in Meridian,Ms. Then Birmingham, followed by Chattanooga. Finally got on a westbound and didn't care where it stopped, just so long as it wasn't Mississippi. Well, I wound up in Corinth, Ms when they broke up the train I was on. Had to re-up on food and water so I hit the city. Flew a sign for about 20 minutes and made $40 before 12 ran me off. Before that tho sum church lady stopped and talked to me
I usually avoid those kind, but she wasn't pushing the Bible just concerned and wanted to help. I could use a rest and so I conversed with her and while she couldn't get me to Memphis, (thru the church) could put me in a hotel for the night. So here I am, clean clothes and bathed(first of 2019) thinking how I didn't even wanna be here. The universe provides. Have a good one.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
