Title: Riding the Rails
“The trick to hopping a boxcar on a moving freight train is to grab hold of the ladder at the front of the car.”
Panama Red knew some stuff and he shared his knowledge freely with those who were patient enough to listen.
“Ya see, that way if you fall, you have the length of the boxcar to give you the time to roll out of the way of the next set of wheels.”
I wasn’t going to be hopping a moving freight anytime soon. Who else is going to care for that damn dog that is following me everywhere?
