    Hi, my name's Jay, 32 years old and live in Mississauga Ontario. Long story short, I work fulltime in the trades, hop freight trains on the weekends. I'm wanting to leave my safety net behind next spring and travel Canada for a few months, mostly by rail but really by any means. I've driven across Canada 3 times now, hitchhiked one of those times. Done a ton of wilderness camping and not afraid to dumpster dive or fly a sign. If you have any advice on long term travel on a major budget, possible summer work in BC, story's from the road, I wanna hear it. Thanks!
