Four train riders seeking a ride to Rapid City crouched in the grass outside of the Common Cents gas station on Highway 59 in Gillette, Wyo. on Thursday, September 31, 2010. They couldn't hop a train because the train was headed to Nebraska, not South Dakota. "Rapid City, Every Mile Helps," was written in permanent marker on their piece of cardboard propped against their backpacks laying in the grass. "We ride freight because it's an easy way to travel and it's fun," Scary Laura Rawx said as she smoked a freshly rolled cigarette. She waited in the grass with her "crew," including, "Eddo," "Panda," and "Rob." The four riders traveled together for one month, each with a different destination in mind after reaching Rapid City. Rob, 31, described freight riding as an addiction and a adrenaline rush. He has been traveling across the U.S. for 14 years. Eddo, 21, had "vagabond" tattood across the knuckles on his left and right hands, one letter for each finger. Panda, 20, is taking time off from her life as a student at a community college in Arizona. She plans to return for the spring semester. Scary, 26, said after graduating with her four year degree and working a full time job she became stir crazy and needed a lifestyle that offered more freedom. During their stay outside of the Common Cents gas station, one person asked if he could buy some drugs from the group, another gave them $5, and two police officers checked their identification and informed them that hitch hiking is illegal in the state of Wyoming. The train riding crew won't be traveling together for much longer. It is too cold to ride freight for some in the winter. "We'll follow the birds south during the winter," Eddo said. Each traveler has plans to work through the cold season to save up money and continue train riding in the spring.
