TREASON THURSDAY, IN COWARDICE CANADA/1993-2021, JULY 8/2021@20:01-Connecticut WILMA SHORTY=THE BIRD, NOT AN AMERICAN EAGLE: I do agree, that some of YOU have RODE the RAILS, though as ON THE ROAD, MEETING HOMELESS PEOPLE, LIKE ANYWHERE, GOOD and BAD ALIKE; THOUGH, MANY OF THEM ARE BULLSHIT.TERS, STORY TELLERS, RATS-COP CALLERS, P.C.-PUNK CITY CASES, etc. As i do AGREE AMERICA is NUMBER ONE, I have been to TWO RAINBOW GATHERINGS, never a HOBO CONVENTION-Britt , Iowa, U.S.A., though I have RODE THE RAILS since 1979; and as SOME TRAMPS…MOSTLY-NOT ALL THE TIMES-BUT MOSTLY, UNITS…MID-TRAIN, or BACK; of CONTAINERS, HOTSHOTS-PIGGYBACKS, etc. These PUNKS-GOOFS as Stobie the Hobo, Wingman, and YOU PUNKS that BASH SOLID 1 PERCENTER’S-BIKERS …are NOTHING BUT BUKKSHIT.TERS as The Canadian Civilian Satellite-Computer Spies!!! If you ever spent time on the RAILS-ROAD-HOMELES-TRAMPING; YOU will know for SURE, as ANYWHERE in LIFE…THERE is SOLID PEOPLE, and there is BULLSHITTERS!!! From 1979-2020; i have RODE APPROXIMATELY 350, 000 miles of TRACK, and HITCHHIKED about TWICE that AMOUNT; and MET EXCELLENT PEOPLE ON THE ROAD, and BULLSHIT.ERS!!! These PUNKS as TEXAS-ROADRUNNER …Stobies CREW…YOU PUNKS WERE and ARE WANNABES!!! Not being PUSHY, ETC., though as RIDING THE RAILS in America; MOST SOLID PEOPLE YOU SEE RIDING THE RAILS, and NOT WANNABES, THOUGH SOLID=NO PUNK CITY CASES…RATS, RAPISTS, PEDOPHILES, etc., BUT SOLID-GUYS…=and YES LIKE MYSELF…WANTED by the LAW!!! The RAILS, FREIGHTRAIN RIDING …can be DANGEROUS…DRUNKS and PUNKS are NOT NEEDED. You can HAVE A FEW BEERS, though I WOULD NOT be CATCHING OUT ON THE FLY. Being that I RODE the RAILS since 1979…at TIMES YOU RUN into PEOPLE, though, at times Y’ALL DO NOT!!!
If YOU CLEAN…and YOU HITCHHIKE and RIDE the RAILS; If NOT in a HURRY, you CAN CHOOSE YOUR RIDE. CONTAINERS-HOTSHOTS-PIGGYBACK…FAST TRAINS…If two UNITS, or ONE up FRONT, and you are WAITING for CREW CHANGE, walk the TRAIN and LOOK for PUSHERS…ONE, maybe TWO-in the MIDDLE of the TRAIN; MAYBE one-two at the END of the TRAIN!!! Why RIDE a CONTAINER, that is DIRTY, DANGEROUS, and if your a DRUNK-PUNK…YOU COULD LOOSE YOUR LIFE, OVER IT.
I have RODE WITH SOME GOOD BROTHER TRAMPS…NO NAMES, and 1998 to 2002…in America, being WANTED by Canadian Authorities, I RODE ALONE-INDEPENDENTLY!!! The FREIGHT TRAIN can be FUN, it can be DANGEROUS, YOU SHOULD HAVE IT TOGETHER; LOOK at Stobie the Hobo…=HE WAS INTELLIGENT, EDUCATED, A VETERAN, THOUGH A DRUNK and a PUNK…AMERICAN STYLE!!! If YOU are an EXPERIENCED TRAMP ON THE RAILS, you may CONFRONT SOME MISHAPS, etc., but a SMART-EXPERIENCED TRAMP-WILL NOT GET HIT by a TRAIN; that is a DRUNK-PUNK!!!
ALL SOLID-EXPERIENCED-and BEGINNERS…RIDE FREE, WATCH OUT FOR THE BULLS, and if YOUR SOLID and EXPERIENCED-WITH RAIL KNOWLEDGE…RIDE THE UNITS…IT HAS BEEN and CAN BE DONE!!!
Later, as I am FINALLY, OFF THE ROAD-RAILS..Thanks America, U.S.A./1979-1980-1981-1985-1986-1998 to 2002, from Mount Hope, Ontario, Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
