@Crazy Hobo Johnny, I have always wanted to ride a ups truck, for a couple blocks at least. Just to say I did. They make it so ez with those big steps... However I did once grab onto a trailer a pickup was pulling while riding my bike. Only made it about a block b4 he realized I was there and break checked me lol. Dummass almost lost his trailer, threw his truck kinda sideways too. I couldent help but laugh.

I actually saw a guy on a skateboard hanging on the back of a UPS truck a couple years ago on the East side of Milwaukee!!! No joke!
Ive sat on the back porch with my skateboard a couple times when i was a young teen lmao

You know how much booze would be replaced by mushrooms once there found out to be safe!!! Seriously would you drink if you could go buy a couple caps and feel better without the dehydration effects and the sugar I take and the slow destruction of your stomach lining...

Well idk how safe theyd be when youre hopping a freight truck though.... lmao

No but they actually are the safest drug if youre looking at it from the perspective of how often people go to the emergency room cuz of it. There are less shroom ER visits than everything even weed. There are still risks though. Like to your mind if youre schizophrenic or something.

Agreed as fuck!!!! There definitely needs to be awareness of the risks to ppl with a history of that sort of thing in there family. In have known some kids to ignore all my warnings and they're never coming to normality again...🤤🤤🤤😢

if you look at the botom of a tractor trailer's trailer, you can see that it has severel I beams.

in theory, with two C clamps and a hammock, clamping the two C clmps to the I beams, and stringing the hamock in between, you could ride along suspended from the underside of the truck.
this idea, however, is stupid, and I probly don't have to explain why, so I won't, unless someone asks.

I would much rather fall off a moving train then fall off a moving semi. If you dont get sucked under at least its just rocks and grass till you stop rolling, if you miss the truck wheels you gotta worry about the cars behind who are probably on their phones not expecting someone falling off the truck in front of them. LOL

Apparently, if you look in stories, at the top one [for now] about hopping freight trucks, someone saw someone else riding under a truck with a hammock.

A long time ago I saw a story on America's Most Wanted about a guy who escaped from prison on the underside of a truck that brought supplies to the prison. The story of his robberies is a good one also.

Largely unrelated to the thread, but when I was a kid (13 or 14), me and a buddy rode halfway across town on the back of an ice cream truck. This was before everyone and their mother had a cellphone of course,and thankfully most of the other drivers saw us for what we were (a couple kids having fun on a slow moving vehicle...all fun and games, right?) We only made it maybe 5 blocks before some cranky old lady dimed us out (she yelled at us, the driver slowed thinking she was trying to get his attention, and we hopped off and booked it). Still; hunkered down on a bumper and clinging to the rear handle of an ice cream truck was my first introdution to alternative travel...May the hobo god bless this entire thread. It brings back memories <3 haha
