    Train questions...

    Discussion started by Milton - Jan 7, 2004

    Heres the plan, I have come to a point in my life where I am 21 years old, (in about 2 weeks) I have no responsibilities, financial or otherwise, and I want to take some time off to travel around. The problem is I don't feel like spending the money for a train ticket, so I'm hoping to either A) sneak on some amtrack shits or B) hop some freights.

    If anyone has advice on how to do either of those well, give me a holler...

    Thanks a million
    Milton

    good luck sneaking onto amtrak. they're pretty careful about that shit now after 911. you might get lucky once, but you wouldnt make a whole trip that way.

    hopping freights?
    unless you know what you're doing, its gonna be a nightmare. you'll get stuck in some podunk town, lost, cold and annoyed.
    if you're gonna do it, do your research.

    I actually had amtrack tickets and managed to make it the whole 24 hour ride without being checked. But I'm hesitant to try it and get kicked off in the middle of nowhere in the snow at 3 in the morning.
    I was sort of gettting at where to start doing the research for freights...

    My dad a few years asked me if I wanted to go train hopping with him a few years back. No reason, he just said he wanted to do it. I was shocked. What's with the fascination people have of hopping trains?

    Sorry D-Hab, but not all members think that Kabar is some all-knowing oracle...
