So recently, we’ve had the urge to learn how to hop frieght trains — much like our ancestors. We realize this is dangerous, and as of yet, we have not been able to meet anyone who could teach us. Well, not until the National Hobo Convention — which we don’t want to show up looking like idiots or beginners. So, we’ve decided to take it into our own hands. We are now beginning our Freight Hop Train-ing Program.
This of course will be documented and turned into a “Winnebago Experience — FHTP” webisode.
On our agenda:
- Starting/Maintaining Hobo Jungles.
- Hopping moving and stationary trains (and other vehicles for practice)
- Train Hopping Equipment
- Reading the trains. How to know where you’re going, or not. Requires purchase of Microsoft® Train Simulator — you will memorize the train system via computer simulation.
- Dealing with being thrown in jail/How fast can you run.
