I couldn't tell you exactly where but, I've partied with this dead guy before.

I guess I've been having a streak of gloom with google lately?

At least he died doing what he loved.

Such a risk being a hobo.

And I'm amused that a hobo can have a myspace.

Just to play devils advocate, wasn't it a bit stupid illegally hitching a ride in a goods wagon, and taking your family (putting them at risk) as well??? Is this Darwinism in practice here?

I remember where I met Jay. It was out in the desert with a couple of bands, A barbeque, Lots of beer and cookies, (Like a half a pound of cookies.) and 75 like minded people and their kids! The show was hardcore and the kids and the older set danced in front of the fire. Kids are so funny, they will dance to just about anything, even death metal. But yeah, That's where I met this guy. Small World.

It took me a few minutes to realise that this guy was dead. Not till I got to the bottom and saw the will miss you stuff. The reason I stopped and looked at this page was because of the trains. I've jumped on a few. I met all kinds and never got beat up or assaulted in any way. Even after getting caught by a bull. Here is the kind of train they were riding.

See the space under the top stack of containers right in the front and rear of the car? That's where they were sitting. Its a space roughly 8' x 6'. I'm guessing from what was written that jay attempted to climb either into the next car or climb over the containers to the other side. Either way, That's a pretty risky move on a rough riding train at 55mph.

Those are the best trains to ride because they are hot-shots. They roll straight through from major hubs without stopping to add/subtract cars. You have to be careful about which train you hop on. Coal trains are really dirty and stop in the middle of nowhere. Freight trains with mixed cars get low priority and could leave you detached from the train in the middle of nowhere.

I learned about how to ride a train as I went along or the hard way. I once got stuck in Salt Lake 9 blocks from civilisation. Salt lake blocks are like 3 miles apart. I also got on a train and went about 1000 yards. Then nothing for 12 hours until I finally walked back to where I started and jumped on a new train. Other than that train jumping has been pretty good to me. A double stack will take me to Barstow and LA in about 12 hours. It goes straight through to Salt Lake in a 10 hour thrill ride through the mountains. It's quite a feeling rolling through the mountains in a 100 car train at 55. One morning arriving in Salt Lake, The break man walked the length of the train yelling for everyone to get up and get off so he didn't get into trouble. At least thirty people got off of the train. I had no idea they were there. I thought we were the only drunken retards on the train. Heh.
