I can't begin to describe the level of happiness I felt when I stumbled upon this site. I have always been an adventurer/free spirit. Most of my childhood and teen years were spent hunting/fishing/camping in various northern Michigan woods. After high school, I began living the basic 9-5 life and haven't really felt like I was going anywhere with it. Long story short, my outlooks on life have changed drastically and I no longer wish to slave my time away making other people's dreams come true. My goals are to catch out of Grand Rapids in the next week, and begin my long trek to the west coast where I will find a place that truly feels like home to me. I'm new to riding the rails btw, so please be understanding if I ever say something using bad terminology in the future, haha. Please be sure to correct me though as I wish to learn as much as possible! Anyways, thanks for reading this. Hopefully I'll get the chance of meeting a lot of you in the future!
