What’s up, I’m Alex. I’ve been wanting to get out of Vegas for most of my life, and the only way I see that happening is by hopping some trains.

I was in a committed, long term relationship but it ended, so I finally have no more ties to this valley. It’s hotter and mustier than the devil’s asscrack and wanna feel a cool breeze and some fresh rain. I need get up to the Seattle/Tacoma area, or even just Portland, and see what I can do up there.

I grew up in the ticky-tacky conformist immigrant household. They’re beyond abusive, and have physically and mentally scarred me. Now that I’m back home and have no refuge in my ex’s family, it seems like a perfect time to get out. I’m doner than done. And I’m trying to find something. So I wanna drift around, meet people, feel something. SeaTac here I come. If I find out how to hop.

From what I've been told by folks who have ridden in/out of there, Vegas seems like a bad place to start learning to ride freight due to high security. It's prob best to hitch to Reno and start there. Also UP workers on average do not give a shit these days due to UP being an awful company to work for, whereas BNSF workers are more likely to care if they see u.

Good luck and make sure to learn safety shit before u get out there. Train vs human, train wins every time.

@Beegod Santana seems a lil counter productive to head SE when they're trynna get NW. If we're talking closest place to vegas to catch out easier, needles would be closer and easier since flagstaff isn't usually a cc or wasn't last time I tried to get out of there wbd? We had wbds blowing past us all night.

Total amount

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
