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😄!

If you can find a loaded wood chip hopper that has the reporting mark SAN, it is likely to be Brunswick (GA) bound. Don't worry, there are NS and CSX trains that leave Brunswick, too.

That's a good heads up. I am heading north, but wouldn't mind going more coastal.
Shit. I might have spotted a whole string of those last night. It was dark, so I could not see what the actual product was.
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.

Thanks man! I been waiting a long time for my criminal record to pass. If your felony is more than 7 years old, or a mistemeanor is more than 3 or 4 I believe, they'll make an exception. I got my felony right when I was 18. I did 7 years of probation for it... When I got off probation I ended up with a misdemeanor assault shortly thereafter. That added 3 or 4 more years I had to wait... This is the first time in my adault life that I actually qualified.

I wish I had stayed out of trouble and did this right when I turned 18...

A healthy measure of determination & a little luck will help you change tomorrow
- no amount of anything can change the past. The only way to profit off your past is to learn from it!
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.

The TA Truck Stop south Redding California off I-5. As long as you are not on the property and stay on the sidewalk, they don't hassle anyone flying a sign. Its convenient for hitch hiking. UP doesn't stop in Redding much though
I really need to find someone catching out around at joseph... I don't know if I can do this for the first time in my own...

honestly it might be safer/easier to hitchhike until you find someone to show you the ropes, its not something you can do without either reading up a ton or having someone show you how. where are you trying to go?

Right now? Anywhere hot. Anywhere else but here. I've been reading about as much as the vast internet can provide, but I don't feel like I'm setting myself up for the best possible outcome if I do this by myself for the very first ti me.
