Just wanted to say hello. I'm a nomad, although, I live in relative comfort wandering the country in an RV with my wife. I love hopping freight trains, something I did as a young man in the 1970's, and something I do now as time and opportunity allow. I just returned from a hi-line hop and will probably head out again for a week or two yet this summer. Glad to see there is such a cool place for people who live their own way.

Welcome!

How did you stumble upon Squat The Planet?
I was looking for the CCG, just kidding, but that’s possible, LOL. I’d seen a few posts over the years and when something popped up while I was looking for hop out videos I dug in and realized I love the stories, information and uniqueness of it, so, here I am.

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
$130.00
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
    $130.00 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.

Beautiful ride from the panhandle through Alabama, big bruised sky all the way until it opened up on me just south of Jackson on 49.
