  1. In the 70s we hitched all over Texas. We got a ride in the back of a PU Truck and the driver shot up while driving and went off the road almost throwin us out the back

  2. The guy is a joke I can't even watch him!
    Vice should have filmed some legit train hoppers and real hitchhikers and got some real footage

  3. Their parents are the millionaires next door. Taking weeks off from life to jump on trains and film human feces on train tracks. The ludicrous nature of privilege.

  4. david choe is literally the luckiest man ever. every time he goes to a casino in this series he wins hundreds/thousands, and he once did some art for the first facebook headquarters and asked for stock in facebook instead of payment, and he is now a millionaire.

  5. I did this 5times before I was 16.
    And then many times after.
    During the 70s, then later during the late 80s
    Sketchy, sometimes, but you get a good sense of people real fast.😑

  6. If you like this series I highly recommend the documentary American Nomads which can also be found on YT. I never binge watch anything but I watched this entire series! Best thing I've found on YT in years. What took me so long? I feel like this first season represents the last years of the late 80s to the 2000s America. A simpler time, people were laid back, weren't glued to their phones, generally open and adventurous, and everything felt possible. Halcyon days.

  7. Harrys like the kid the teacher picks you with when all your friends already chose eachother but the kid is actually sick as fuck

  8. I went from jail, to filled with Jesus. The thing is though, is trying to keep that fire for him alive, after the splendor and awe has worn off. Proud of that dude for changing his life for the better!!
