railroad tracks that run perpendicular to the "main drag" downtown .....ask somebody where the "End of The Line Cafe" is.... the tracks run down the street it's on ...follow them east you'll walk over a trestle over a lil inlet... the beach is on yer right, under the big tree there is a good spot to camp out...other camping spots down in the woods on yer left just over the trestle

be careful out at hobo beach, im from pensacola and am in town till i get my foodstamp card and people have told me cops are starting to go out to hobo beach and arresting people. I've never had a problem out there but last time i was in town there were 3 or 4 homebums staying out there and about a week ago when i went out there they were gone. supposedly cops went down there and just started arresting everyone.

Why? DIP? That's the only reason I can see... Its a public beach so they can't hit you with loitering.

im not really sure if its public property i know on the other side of the tracks is private property owned by some dickhead who will call the cops on you if your camping out there, but if people are getting arrested out there its probably for illegal camping

a few hundred meters down on the left is a badass tree house I have camped in for a while, doesnt quite keep out the rain, but what a view... 8 meters to the tracks, (sometimes trains even stop here, maybe 2 miles from the yard? I dont know, no siding tracks or anything, but I have seen several resting on the tracks right out front), just a few more to the ocean...

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
    $70.75 of $75.00
    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
    $70.75 of $100.00
    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
    $70.75 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.

These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.

Thanks for reading
