My first hop was on January 5th of 2019... It was at night so didn't see much out of Yuma to Colton yard in California.. My husband and I hopped with Don't Panic. He got us in the 4th Engine and despite no power to the unit it was an amazing 1st ride. This was my Husbands 2nd hop. His first hop was out of Kirby, TX yard to Rialto, Ca Thanksgiving day. We are hooked and gonna hop again in a few days heading for Virginia. Any advice for yards going from Los Angeles area to the East Coast would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome! Share your adventures here! A husband and wife team that's cool! Had a GF I hopped with but her opoid addiction was messing everything up, had to get rid of her. Anyway, would like to read anything you can share, always something to learn here!

A digi-nomad's life for me?

Amtrak crew change. Hiding from the bull
Got a new bicycle today! I feel so much better
Hitched from Ft. Collins, CO to Laramie, WY in three rides and an hour and a half. Today’s a good day.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
