Hi everyone, my names Boon, I'm 19 years old and from Fresno California, I plan on hopping a train for my first time in less than a month. I've been very interested in freight hopping for a few years and I've spent a lot of time researching, now I've put together a little cash and gear and I'm free of obligations so I'm gonna go for it!
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

GL do some research on here and watch some trains and follow em with your home town first or meet someone in person to help ya but know that just because of how long someone has been riding doesn't know everything. the easiest way to see if someone is a bullshitter is to talk about a topic you know and then see what bullshit they make up about that to compare the info they are giving you to stuff you don't know about

Good luck boon, if your ride takes you through chico, CA stop off and enjoy the town there's good people there. Look for a place called the stage it's smack dab in the middle of downtown all the traveling folks meet up there, theres also a quote un-qote shelter run by the ex members of gruk. Don't sleep by the river though, college kids will fuck with ya.
With gratitude, -Ian

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    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
    $10.00 of $75.00
    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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    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
    $10.00 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.
