    dont make plans, anyone i know whos hopped just got on and came back when they felt like it, your not riding the greyhound you know, its super unpredictable, dont say youll be back by a certain date cause you have court that day, cause you wont make it.

    It's not Rocket Science

    But you do need to know quite a bit about what's going on to avoid getting hurt or busted. Read

    "Hopping Freight Trains in America" by Duffy Littlejohn
    Sand River Press
    1319--14th Street
    Los Osos, CA 93402

    $13.95 + $1.95 shipping

    Or, go to the post "Duffy Littlejohn Online" and use the link to online versions.

    BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE.
    If you hop "blind" you may wind up dead or in jail, for real. Best of all, go with an experienced train hopper who knows what the fuck he is doing.

    The passwords are "dead" and "bums"

    BE FUCKING CAREFUL. This ain't no fucking hobby.

    Nope. But after I'm gone you'll find my streak and think "Dammit! He was just here a couple of days ago!" LOL. "KABAR: LONG GONE."
