100 pages, black and white train-hopping/hobo-graffiti zine-
RR Semantics #5 is the fifth installment in a series of train-hopping zines. This issue is a full-on documentation of a life lived on the rails spanning the first six months of the year 2011, and covers roughly 1,800 miles on freight-trains (and several-hundred scammed on Amtrak) in the Great Pacific Northwest, through Oregon, California, and all over Washington state. RR Semantics #5 features dozens of newspaper articles related to railroad incidents, accidents, and regional activity, hundreds of photographs of hobo and train graffiti corresponding to specific locations, and is as heavy on the writing side of things.
