Have you ever heard of Strobe the Hobo? He was a homeless man armed with a camera and a need to document his travels. When you picture someone hoping on a train car, you think of a guy in tattered clothing with a handkerchief bundle on a stick. Strobe the Hobo seems like a fairly normal guy, with a lot of experience traveling as a stowaway on a freight train.

Strobe the Hobo has a lot of followers on YouTube, as well as a lot of views. Watch as he attempts to jump freight trains from Missoula to Miami.

Unfortunately Strobe the Hobo died while trying to train hop near Baltimore. Which is probably safe to say, a good reason for nobody to think that train hoping isn't dangerous. It is a felony and deadly. But, Strobe was good at what he did, and died doing it.
