    hi all ,

    just a quick q , as the tile says : have any of the people on here done any FH ?
    I think people who do it as a hobby advance from UE , or are hobos or ex-cons ( not suggesting anything ahaha )

    This is what happens when you have a conservative government, convicts can't find jobs and fill the days riding up and down in freight trains talking with hobos (not really a term used in the UK)

    Why would anyone do this?

    Styru : I probably slightly overreacted a bit ( just a tiny bit :) ) and I probably read it wrong in my head , so sorry about that.
    what I sort of meant was the people I've talked to who have done it have previously done quite a bit of UE , and have said they sort of " graduated " up to it.

    On a general note I though some of you may of had a crack at it if you were ever on the other side of the pond.
    apologies for any offence caused

    very much doable and tempting,
    but are the risks worth it, £1000 fine or prosecution.

    I seem to remember it used to be called freight bagging and was the pursuit of a large cross section of society from lawyers accountants to even a chef, i have an article from one of the Sunday paper supplements from many years ago on the subject must dig it out sometime. I have indulged though only briefly and that was also many years ago far too old now sadly.
