So on my first train journey, planned to head West from NoLa but wound up I'm Alabama, found a dog to travel with.. named her after my hometown (Nola) her leg is messed up so I wound up having to stay here till she's far the people have been amazing. Made enough money on day one to get a phone and new pack since mine broke hopping off the train... plu more food water and Dogg stuff than I could carry. Day two was even better my first $100 dollar kick down lus the gentleman hooked me up with his vet to check out Nolas leg. Even though bama has looked out for a dirty kid and his cur, I'm ready to catch out. Gotta make sure sheb100%& can hop first, vet owns soon for now, warm clothes and beer spange

Well just remember on your second train journey, that those East bound trains, can make West bound destinations, a helluva lot more complicated than they have to be. You only have Georgia left :D I am glad Alabama was kind to you and your new road buddy. :D

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
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
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.
