Excellent article, however troubling - though I'm not surprised by any of it, unfortunately

Interesting so far. Ive got a trespassing on rr property ticket when we were not on rr property and had not been on their property. Oh well.


My personal exp with the bull has been wway more chill than normal cops.

Please explain.
How could you trespass to a place you haven't been to? I don't understand..

richmond virginia, the east coasts portland.
Over 300 arrests in overtown miami since 2009 for trespassing, uh no shit it's right next to the fec mainline if I'm not mistaken.

I think it's great that those states are giving bulls less legal authority. Now having said that I've been given a stern talking to by a bull or two and let go when in a similar situation I'm sure I would of spent a few nights in county if deputy soandso was solely in charge of the situation.

In my observations I'm seeing more unsworn and unarmed security type people. Their job is to observe and report. They can ask trespassers to leave but they're not LEOs. They can detain someone with handcuffs if necessary but that's rare.

You are 110% correct! Because I am in the security business! Thanks for sharing that! Yes, security officers are not police officers!

Met a super sweet old traveler girl yesterday been off the road 6 months. So stoked on life right now
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.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MY FELLOW TRAVELERS: Please stop telling me about your bowel movements, thank you.
