I stumbled across this website and it's exactly what I'm looking for! I have been dreaming about train hopping and hitchhiking for a while but had a hard time finding (current) forums for it. Everyone around where I live that I tell about my future plans to do this shoots me down and tells me to just buy a plane ticket. Finally I found a community where I can get tips and talk about my plans with!! So happy :)

Welcome. There's definitely a lot of info here at the hobohub of the interwebs.

Funny how people dream of hitching out these days. 40 years ago, people hitched out of necessity. Just an observation not directed at anyone in particular, except maybe the residents of oogledom.

I welcome you aboard! You have came to the right place. It is a good idea to read many other threads ahead of time as you plan your trip. Where do you plan to go soon? I'm curious.

For the most part, it's the rating system. If I get negatives, I usually don't worry about that and think of something better to type out next time.

Pop Why did you rate my post negative ..? It was your own damn words !! smh

    More Info

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
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

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 his 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.
