hey my name's will i'm pretty new to the lifestyle been out less than a week. i mean i was sleeping in tents most the summer doing dock labor in AK, so I sorta had the idea of things.

but ya i'm 19 always been interested in travelling made friends with a bunch of travel kids in alaska and it resparked my desire to travel a bit. i took a plane down to seattle for 100 bucks last week wit my gear and hitched down the coast a bit until i ended up in Eugene.

i heard it was an easy place to hop a train and did my research so i was like fuck it im gonna hop a train. found the hop out and got some good tips from a couple kids there and ya i took a junk train down to klamath falls last night. It was pretty fucking gnarly, wow. That was some awesome shit.

In K falls now, charging up my phone, doing a bit more train research, and figuring out where to head next. Dunno if i'll hitch or try and hop out again, we'll see. But ya just wanted to introduce myself.

Also it would be sweet to meet more queer travelers, im glad there's such a large community of em out there! :)

Good stuff , good stuff ! Hoping trains is fun . I recently had my longest ride of 5 hrs. from Sunset into the night. The coolest part was when the train stopped out in the middle of nowhere at night. I climbed to the top of the car , smoked a bowl and watched the stars. Anyhew welcome to STP and maybe we will cross paths one day. Stay cool , takecare and have fun . Later !

Why would you ever leave that great country of Alaska to come to the authoritarian U.S. of A?! JK
Man that's exactly how i felt after leaving. That place is fucking great. When I settle down, that's where I'll be.
