Yeah that's my boy! If you read my Boxcar Party story, he's in the last quarter of it or so. He was a conductor when I was an engineer. Oddly, I met him at a bum gathering under the old oak tree at the Roseville catchout. He was a long time train rider who got hired on a couple years after I did. He had an old friend who was homebumming that catchout for a while named Gonzo. Gonzo was an old school ftra dude, one of the good ones though. Heart of gold, he's since taken the westbound. Gonzo introduced us and I immediately remembered seeing him in the Oakland yard office before, he was being a smart ass to the crew who he was assigned to because they just didn't get his personality and they had a really bad trip together. He was there student conductor at that time.Hell yeah @Engineer J Lupo !
Crime pays but Botany Doesn't makes me fucking smile, and take a load off.
You know him??
Seriously, that dude's train of thought is the shit. Ramblin' about riding freight trains, while identifying plants in between with the whole "SQUIRREL!" dog mentality, almost.
