HOBOs Can't Post

statute of limitations should be up, so here ya go..

O.G. Hobos from Pecos RR bridge are:
#1 Phil Smith
#2 Kevin Venell
#3 Randy Harrison
#4 Andy Smith
#5 Rick Harrison


#6 Mark Bailey did it in the late 80's or early 90's from a different train trestle in KY I believe.

Then we revisited the Pecos HOBO jump in 2009
#7 Chris Stokely
#8 is myself...


Has anyone else tried this since we did it in 2009??

I remember Bill Legg telling me about this years ago in the 90's. I got to watch a video tape of it but don't recall when or who had it. Bravo!Wink

Hey Lane. When I first posted this on Facebook, I wasn't sure about your job so I didn't use yours or Chris's names even though the statute of limitations is long run. The train jumps were some of the most unusual in my career. Cave in Mex. probably my most surreal. The old TV show PM Magazine featured the train jumps back in 83 and they got so many calls about it they showed it again the very next week and basically said, kiddies, don't try this at home.

Tell me about it. When I was there, there was some old guy in the LZ handing out hallucinogenics. Definitely surreal. Tongue

Not sure who that "old" guy was but it sure was clean and the best breath freshener money can buy. CoolMade the trip up on the rope more interesting.
