Just hitch, seriously.. how ugly are you? Even if you're beastly and they chucked you in the trunk, at least you'll still get there.

Small price really.

Probably way faster and easier to hitch, but fuck knows, never heard of anyone freighthopping here, maybe you could work out how to do it for the rest of us and post the info up youself? ;)

back on topic though, in the northisland you're pretty likely to get caught, and stuck with that shitty $200 fine for trespassing on the lines or whatever. Probably cheaper to buy a ticket. Down south, probably less likely... more geographic distribution of places where you can get on, and less likely to be seen. cept two guys got killed last year train hopping.

not worth it in my opinion. hitching is easier.

Clue: arseholism and cuntism isn't restricted to white people and males. Racism and sexism ... oo edgy.

Almost half of 'criminals' in our prisons are Maori.

See I can make statistically provable generalisations too.

I think you're all missing the point that ALMOST ALL serial killers in China have been Chinese. Vicious bastards.

Oh hai, you must be nu hear.

I'm the PunkAs resident white capitalist male, police snitch, fox news watcher, rightwinger, and chauvanist. You would probably be unimpressed by my Honda Civic though. Women! Such golddigging bitches ay!

But yeah, anytime you feel like cooking me some eggs, let me know. I'll reimburse you for your time relative to how generous I'm feeling and how hot you are on a sliding scale reflective of how drunk I am.

Age: 18


Young enough to have read "On the Road" for the first time, or got to Woodie Guthrie through Joe Strummer through Tim Armstrong
Occupation: dole


You would die in an anarchist society if you have to rely on the dole to live. But I'm guessing you still live at home with your parents, who you define as evil capitalist pigs becuase they a)won't let you paint your room black and b)didn't get you an iphone for xmas.
Interests: Animal rights, anarcha-feminisim, skateboarding and smashing shit.

smashing shit? how quaint. That shit was old when punk first started, 20 years before your dad bought your mum a sixer of woodys and got trapped for life.

Kathleen Hanna just died a bit inside.

"i never see punks at protests... "


That's cause you still think being a punk means looking like you're in a rancid video, when the reality is it doesn't mean shit how you dress.

Nothing you would read from crimethinc etc about hopping trains is really that relevant in NZ because we have different rail carriages than the US. They have boxcars, which I assume are far easier to ride than the space capsules or flat decks with containers on them we have here.

I've heard of people down here hopping trains for short distances, riding on the back of carriages where the frames connect to the next carriage etc. Would be cold / uncomfortable as hell over long distances though. Also it turns out you can't ride on top of carriages, unless you want to turn into a lulzy advert for Darwin's theories in action...

Basically don't bother, just hitch and enjoy the ranting.

way to kill the romanticisim of just riding the rails where they take you, you bunch of cocks.

and don't blame the trains for only having like three destinations in NZ. it's your fault for being cynics.
