Talked this kid into riding a train one time. He was 17 punk rocker. Told him we were going to Austin.... Shit dude! Turns out the train was going to Ft Worth. Best part of the trip was when I hopped on top of the grainer jumping from car to car like I was Indiana fucking Jones or Butch Cassidy.... Anyways some Mexican cowboy driving in a red f150 got wind of this... Driving alongside the train on a dirt road. I waved to him as he waved his arms out the driver side window cheering me on. As we rolled on to some shithole one horse town in middle of nowhere Texas and the sun went down, the excitement quickly died down. We woke up to an ice storm. 3 inches thick ice everywhere. Smart me didn't bring any food or water.... BUT! I did bring some ghetto Walmart stove attachment for propane bottle. Rookie move. We figured we'd be in Austin by now but .. no! Here we are collecting barley off the tracks melting icicles for the whole situation. We survived once we reached Dallas. My friend the punker could not feel his feet for a while a while month. If you think it's warm in Texas during winter, well don't ditch your boots and sleeping bag because I have a whole lot of fucked up stories about being an ignorant kid from California.

This week in: "showcase of what not to do on a train.. Much less brag about."

Rookie move indeed

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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
