DISCLAIMER: The art of Train Hopping is dangerous and illegal, Jumping Trax is not a how-to, or reference guide. It is a true tale of my first adventure on the rails. Nowhere am I suggesting that you... More > try it. I don't tell anyone what they should do. Be safe out there kiddies. A true story, caught in both pen and photographic evidence, Jumping Trax embodies freedom in a most real and American way. In this world, uncertain outcomes move at locomotive speed, providing a quick paced and exciting read. Vivid and comedic confrontations include: Dodging the Union Pacific "Bulls", timing the speed of their "hop", losing supplies, wind in their teeth while smiling as they ride the unobservant servant; starry rooftop nights of inspiration, and rusty boxcar. The journey is the prize in each moment of this book, with humor and peril. And of course, the end will have a bang. A photography DVD and Photobook are well on the way.
