» Trivia question that the bull asked for me to answer!

The bull that played Game Show host! Riding the Kansas City Southern has always been a favorite route of mine! This was one of a million trips that I had taken on the KCS down to New Orleans from Kansas City, but this trip was to be a bummer.

» Ashes to Asheville!

CSX & NS, What a way to go! This was the summer of 1993. I had caught a train to Montgomery, Alabama on the CSX from Birmingham & it was too hot & humid to just sit & make camp! I needed to get moving & let the cool wind blow in my face!

» Not paying attention to the car you ride may be hazardous to your health!

UP special agents in Las Vegas. It was the spring of 1991. I had caught out of Yermo, California on the Uncle Pete to ride to Provo, UT for a bit of work. The ride from Yermo to Las Vegas was just like any other I had taken, hot & boring.

» Powder River run & the Delirium Tremens!

Was this a time to quit? I guess that the year of 1998 was my peak of alcohol consumption. (Although I have not had a drink now since December 2 of 2006). I had worked over in the town of Keokuk, Iowa for a few days & made a bankroll there.
