How does ChooChoo handle the traveling? and how did you get ChooChoo so comfortable with being on your shoulders and traveling?

Choochoo does great with traveling, she did fine on the trains and when hitching in the back of pick ups and all that.
To train a shoulder cat you have to train them from when they are very young and just keep practicing walking long distances with them riding the pack, then try puttin them on just your shoulders and do it every day until it’s natural for them. Harness/leash train them when they are young.
I’ve also trained her to tell me when she needs to pee and to tap my water bottle if she’s feeling thirsty and her water dish isn’t out.
Just a lot of patience and practice

Chicago

My road dog left for Pennsylvania today. Traveling alone again.
Where are all the dirty kids at in Chicago???

Been riding the high-line for over 3 days now from Pdx to Chicago. 
Just got pulled off train by bnsf and a sherriff in Tioga, North Dakota.
No jail or fines, just a warning and I can’t get caught riding bnsf again.

Either hitching or hopping back on the train, haven’t decide yet.

Earth first! 2014 rendezvous

An update on my travels:
I just spent a 5 days at the annual gathering of earth first! The green anarchist activist group that has been deeply involved with Eco-activism for many years.
I learned many things and met a whole bunch of incredible people while getting to camp on an incredibly beautiful mountain in Northern California.
On the Fourth of July we burned flags and partied around a fire, it was a great time.

I have court in a week, already hitched to where I need to be, going to be homebumming it till’ court.

Me and the kitty have been having a great time in Portland Oregon! It’s been a really awesome experience and a rad ass city. 
Leaving tomorrow to hitch south to crescent city for court, then back up north after that. Probably going to hop freight and ride the highline east from Washington to Chicago.
I feel dirty as fuck and my pants and boots are barely holding together. I need a shave and a haircut, but I’m enjoying life and my trip and most of the people I’ve met.
