It's a moot point anyway. Not everybody hopping a train is going to have a scanner all the time. I rarely have a hundred bucks I could drop on one, and generally other things I need that money for. Even if I had one, I was asleep with no reason to think I was in trouble...the train hung out in the yard a minute, happens all the time.

Sheesh, do you really do that to yourself, wake up and turn on the scanner every time the train stops, even in a normal spot to stop? I'd rather have the sleep.

I had this story in the back of my head when I just got caught this week. Got on in Oakland I didn't know there was anyone on the train until we got near Martinez and saw a bunch of heads when we hit a siding. 3 of them get off and come to our well to talk to us while the train waits, I count 6 young kids (red flag 1) and the person that seemed to know the most about what they were doing was wearing a green cape (red flag 2).

Anyway we get to Roseville and the police were waiting for us. Me and Addie get caught and the other people got off somewhere before hand. The police are looking for more people because they tell us they got a report of 5 people. Well we get tickets and now we have court in 3 months in Sacramento. I'm going to try to call the courthouse there and have it moved to Alameda/Oakland.

Well I guess It's time for me to invest in a scanner.

@Mongo I feel like Oakland is blown up with a lot of idiots from the bay that are riding their first train. Sucks you got caught but it's happened to me too.

    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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    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.
