Hello, STP. My handle is Eyegor and I am a middle aged Fed and a Cop. Wanted to put that out right up front. I've done more than my share of tramping around and have always befriended travelers because they have always befriended me. While I have lurked here for a few years it was never for a nefarious purpose. More of a Walter Mitty voyeurism. In many ways I envy you and your adventures. I started hopping trains as a teen ager but it was always 10 miles or less. I've also trekked many a trail. I've been cold, hungry and lost out on the road, but provenance and luck have always prevailed. While my lifestyle now is pretty button-down, I like to believe the spirit of the tramp still resides in my heart. I don't pretend to be one of you and hope you are accepting of me as your tribe has been of others.

no offence Eyegore but is this the right place for thee ? I'm thinking cross purposes / pulling in opposite directions etc ...
None taken. My main reason for posting was to put up a local news article of a freight rider who was killed after apparently falling from the consist while moving at speed. In case anyone here knew him or his family I wanted the word to spread. It also serves as a potentially life saving reminder of the dangers of the steel snake.
Over the years I've learned a great deal from the stories and experiences of others. I'm sure there are many folks here who would disagree with me or other forum members on certain issues. Like most tribes we are all individuals in our thoughts and actions. OTOH we are all more similar than we are different. If my presence here proves to be disruptive or unwanted I will voluntarily quit posting. I will however continue to read and learn.

(pressed off topic by mistake, keep doing that, big fingers small phone...)
well I can't claim to speak for the STP community as I am a recent addition myself but I commend you for your honest posts ; I try not to deal in stereotypes - I've met cool cops, I've met a hole travellers...... maybe we can convert you to utopian anarchism ! it's soooo much better than the straight world

Welcome, it takes all types I suppose.

You have no concerns of your own agency spying on your activities?

I dont want to not welcome you to the community, but you are a federal agent. Please accept my almost welcome and hope that you find deep contentment within our boards, without using any of the information you find here to fuck anyone over.

what are the chances of 'turning' a fed/cop? as in a double agent of sorts? they could be an ear/eyes on the inside.

Total amount
$130.00
Goal
$100.00

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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $130.00 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.
