Hey everyone ive been reading through a lot of the website it's fucking amazing wish I would have found it years ago.
I'm 30 been traveling since I was about seventeen mainly hitchhiking, jumped trains a couple times but would love to do it again and learn more.
I'm from Canada and I've been stuck in the Ottawa area for a while now, I've been trying to make a life here but I recently ended up homeless again so I'm looking to move on after the winter. My road dog died last year so I'm looking for new road dawgs to travel with preferably someone who can teach me about train hopping. Look forward to getting to know you all and make some new like minded friends ✌

Hey I'm from Canada too tho I'm located way on the other side of country from you in BC :) Sorry about things not working out for you but maybe something bigger and more exciting is on it's way to you...

Honestly I'm not much help for train hopping or anything really but hitchhiking and that's pree self explanatory... So I guess just saying Hi Welcome to the site hopefully someone here can help you or a good opportunity falls from the sky :)

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌

In Durango Co. I'm sure folks here know about this but train museum here is very cool. They let you wander around their mini yard and climb on the steam locomotives or at least no one said not to. Free and worth paying for.
Been away for a while, crazy 12 hour field days are finally over. Time to write part 2 of my experience! Coming soon!
