Nothing wrong with newbies if they are intelligent, genuinely interested, put in some work themselves, and aren't just doing it because they think it's cool. I also try to reinforce the fact that riding trains and living this lifestyle is not for everyone.First off I have been leaving this forum alone because there are too many people here on train hopping who have never been on a freight train.
yeah there are alot of kids like this and I don't like these types either. These kinds of kids will get nothing from me. I do try to weed out all the bull shit, stupidity, and discourage the I'm entitled attitude. This kinda shit pisses me off too.I agree with Meatroll, some of the people that log onto this site want everything handed to them, before they dare to ride a train.
Actually it just says a person who travels. Doesn't say how the travel.And another thing, there is not such thing as a rubber tramp. You either tramp or you drive, and someone driving has no right to class themselves as a freight train rider.
Look it up. Tramp 1 (also hobo) [COUNTABLE] a person with no home or job who travels from place to place, usually asking people in the street for food or money
2 [SINGULAR] the tramp of somebody/something the sound of somebody's heavy steps the tramp of marching feet3 [COUNTABLE, USUALLY SINGULAR] a long walk
TREK We had a long tramp home.4 (OLD-FASHIONED, NORTH AMERICAN ENGLISH, DISAPPROVING) a woman who has many sexual partners
Nothing there about driving is there?
Yes there is some really good info on this forum, and I encourage everyone to contribute to it if they can. If they can't now in time they will be able too. Everyone has to start somewhere. Some will stick with it, some won't. You'll have that with everything in life. As for those who shouldn't be on here. I think maybe those who think they are too good to contribute, Those who think we ow them, And those who just want to be cool of course.There is some good stuff here, and things change. Looking at the links from Meatroll, I can see I can see a lot of useful info there.
However I am tempted to just view and not post because if I post I have to deal with these members who talk shit and shouldnâ€™t be on this hopping forum anyway.
As I said everyone has to start somewhere. the more they know before they start the better.Thatâ€™s right, and if they have never even rode a train they should stay on the hitchhiking forum â€“ anyone can travel by sticking their thumb out, freight train riding takes a little more brainpower.
First of all I'm the moderator of this forum now. Widerstand does not use STP anymore really, but I still talk to him quite often. Second damn. I'm a bit of an elitist myself and I don't deny that, A lot of us are, all the bullshit and stupidity kind of makes us this way, but damn son what are you God of the fucking hobos or something? I still try to help those I feel are deserving of it. As for a proper freight train rider, I'm not real sure what that is to you but I'm pretty damn sure I would fit the description.Widerstand you should shift these people onto the right forum, which you might set up. Call it the wannabes forum. There they can cuss and talk garbage all they want and we donâ€™t have to read it.
Well rant over â€“ take it or leave it.
Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™m going to have a hundred insults claiming this, claiming that, but unless they are from a proper freight train rider I will not be taking any notice.
