Dude I'm saying this in the nicest way possible. Smith's falls is the easiest place on earth to catch freight. If you can't get on a train their you won't make it anywhere.

Did you really check things out? Have you ever hopped a train before?

No I haven't hopped a train before. I was hoping that someone would be able to help me out with my first time.

Hey everyone! I'm looking to catch out of Smith Falls, Ontario and go west to BC. After studying the station a bit I'm having trouble finding a smart place to wait for the right train. If anyone could help me at all that would be awesome. Thanks.

Honestly you guys could be a little easier on the dude. Hopping these days aint like 30 yrs ago, the security is SAVAGE. So Im no offianado but have squatted for a decade n taken a number of trains but many yrs ago. Security is everywhere. Cameras spot you and in 5 minz a cart rides up with mall cops kindly telling you to beat it. My advice: take your time. Do recon for several nights. Most trains it seems run at night. This is good cause fukn Security. Carry a light pack. Plent yof water. Sometimes you can get asense of where a trains going by the cars, like in the NW cars with cable have lumber, so their often hugging the close to the coast but not always. Just be aware you're gonna probably fuck up now and tyhren and catch the wrong one and end up in Siberia....but it an experience, que no?

Im securing a squat tonight that should be a good long term squat. Also im playing a show tonight.
Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
