About
Freight train rider/Vagabonding
A cowboy is someone who spends his time alone on the prairie taking in long breaths of wild sage. Cowboys don’t have homes because homes are one of the few places they can’t up and leave. And when a cowboy can’t do what he wants he gets ornery real fast—making anyone at home wish he would “just go.” A tramp is a cowboy. He rides the open range, he sleeps under the stars, and he believes in the luck of the Golden Years. The Golden Years are not segments of time but long moments that pass without tension or confusion. They come on a “good luck train”—

Ft. Worth~San Antonio~Seattle within 4 days traveling for free
Jumping ahead several years, I revisit my first time hopping south from Ft. Worth, when I was wanting to go east. After enjoying San Antonio I received my first 2000+ mile ride back to Seattle.

Failing to catch a westbound train, we were forced to hitchhiking and consequently changed our recent course.
