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!

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
