    Heard from Stretch and Burlington the other day. They were stuck in Dallas. They missed Amory Railroad Festival. Stretch tried to make it by hitching, but couldn't do it. He was disappointed, but hey, that's life on the bum. It's hard to hit a precise date for a festival or gathering or whatever when you're on foot. You have to start way early and allow for all of life's little misadventures.

    I am heading East on the Highline from Washington State in a couple of weeks.
    I'll be using a scanner for the first time.
    I know to get off in Havre for the 1000 mile checkpoint. Any other heads up between Spokane and Minneapolis?

    spokane and havre are the only sketchy spots as far as im concerned. careful in havre they are pretty on top of shit there.

    just rode from arkansas back to houston a couple days ago and miraculousy didnt get busted by the workers who saw us run across the road and tracks to get on during the day time. the train started pulling out and they stopped it to search for us but couldnt find us. we could hear them running up and down climbing on ladders and shit we were sweating bullets. pig in a bucket THANK YOU. i wasnt missing that train and spending another night getting mauled by mosquitos. NOPE.

    KCS workers (except shreveport and dallas) are nice as fuck.
    talking about 12 pc chicken dinner, 5 sodas, 5 apples and alpo from the engineer.
    cases of water in baton rouge.

    AWESOME

    I've always been well-treated by KCS workers. Back in the day, the Southern Pacific guys were real decent people too, but when they got absorbed by UP, things got tougher. Worst of all of them, I think, are the Norfolk Southern special agents. I will still ride NS trains, but I am extremely careful.

    Sucks that they won't hire felons. Otherwise I'd be all over that.
