Devoted to trainhopping and railroad culture, Aaron Dactyl'sRailroad Semantics zine describes the sights, sounds, successes, and defeats of riding around the U.S. inside of (and sometimes on top of!) freight trains. This first issue, re-published here in book form, explores a round-trip, early-spring train ride from Portland to Pocatello and back, as well as a long, winter ride to Eugene. Both informative and entertaining, issue one also features a wide array of articles on railroads and rail-related activity, letters, postcards, and is full of absolutely gorgeous photographs of landscapes and hobo graffiti - a poetic sense of adventure captured in words, pictures, and scenic vistas!
Aaron Dactyl is an adventurer, railroad hobo, and train enthusiast. He regularly travels by hopping trains. He lives in Eugene, Oregon.
