i found out mike passed away yesterday, here in san jose of a kidney failure. many of you may have known him and his wife lil bit, as they were old school train riders, in their 50's. mike was a white guy with blonde hair and a southern accent, lil bit is a short native woman, with a dog named kelly. both have been riding trains for many years, altho theyve been posted up in san jose, california for the past year or so. lil bit has also been in the hospital as she had a minor heart attack upon hearing the news. this also happened sadly right after they finally got the camper van they've been working and saving towards here for a long time. mike will definitly be missed by alot of people.

When you're going on another trip but for whatever reason you're not leaving for like a month, how do you pass the time while waiting?

It’s fucked but we’re getting it from both the left and right these days; partly out of sheer contrarianism I’ve started learning a lot about my Jewish heritage in the past few years,& think if I go on the road again may plan on visiting different communities... Absolutely fuck skit and their full-on alt-right talking points.
Oh the pain! So much pain. Lol boo boo though.

Taking time off from rural AZ, back in the city. Towed car, but cheap hostel room in LV. Oh well, will get to check out some car auctions soon.
