Dude! Absolutely! I use to ride back in 2008 & FTRA are seriously killers, they'll kill just because. Furthermore, he landed on tracks and was run over by another train which destroyed any evidence of anything happening. FTRA are sick they use to take people hostage in the yards & piss on bandannas and make them wear it. FTRA SHOULD BE KILLED! EVERY1!!!
Stobe was so nice, he trusted too many people and got killed!!! Nobody out there to hear you scream for help or to hear you die.
You know, you really should think before posting.

Feel free to contact Jim’s parents, through the memorial page they have set up on Facebook. They will set you straight real quick. You stated something you simply believe as a set-in-stone fact. Was it the second shooter on the grassy knoll?

I loved Stobe's videos. I actually only started watching them this year. Less then a month ago is when I learned of his death. His death I think was such a great loss to everyone who was a fan or a friend.

Everyone of you who has posted your train hopping videos, I enjoy them all! I have not hopped a train in over 20+ years and they all bring back so many memories.

For me, it's only been two - but after waiting that long, it kinda does feel like 20+. Good chance I might finally get one this summer, I'll just have to wait for the outcome of the other plans I made.

Nice guy, real nice guy but had a nasty habit of walking across giant trestles even trust is without cat walks like the one that goes over the red River in Shreveport.
no disrespect but let this be a lesson to any of you thinking about taking a shortcut across an expansive trestle.

Yeah it has been a little over two years now. It is still mind blowing to me because I thought he would still have several thousand more miles ahead of him, hell, I could have several hundred more ahead of me. Still missing you a little...

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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $80.00 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
    $80.00 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.
