So what's everyone!!! Waiting on my ride out today I was about to hop a IM made completely of suicides. Fuck it I hop on it's not moving so as the ride is going my gut is telling me catch the next one. Waiting is everything. I've caught suicides before but I couldn't help but get the feeling of #1 getting caught and #2 the risk of dying cause it was the first thing smoking. Anyway have any of you done the same?

Only done it once while crazy intoxicated. Sobered up on the train and felt like a dumbass. Your life is never worth the ride and you don't get badass points for doing it.

I dont even let it get to 'gut feeling' time. I set rules for myself before I ride. In the moment, things can be hectic and you have to make a snap decision. I already know I won't get on anything that's moving faster than a crawl, I won't ride any suicide (except for pig in a bucket), and I won't fuck around on top of cars/containers while they're moving.

Like @Thewalkindude said....your life isn't worth it. There's always another train coming down the line that might have a safer ride!

Suicide was the first thing I ever rode. It was an experience, but I don't think I'd ride it again unless it was an emergency and I needed to get out of town immediately for some reason.

Yeah same here. I've rode once probably not my smartest move, but I'd do it again on a need to basis

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
