    There is an awesome train yard that I have been really active in for about 7 months but just dodging these security guards and the railroad workers who patrol the area in vehicles. I have never had a run in with the railroad workers so I didn't know how it would go when I finally had contact with them I mean that could mark the beggining of problems for me since I am trespassing on private property. At dawn this morning I was smashing through to get some pics and I saw one of they're vehicles pulling up behind me and I was gonna put my plan in motion to convince them I had nothing to do with graffiti and was just riding through on my bike so I turned on my square looking joggers LED light harness thing and started riding briskly and waited for them to overtake me and I kept going checking out allot of bad ass pieces on the train wishing I could get pics and thinking about what I was going to say and wondering why they were just following me and I looked back and they were gone..just gone. Nowhere in sight :) I was so happy..I think it probably helps that its dawn and I look clean cut on an expensive bicycle with some headphones on and shit like I'm just out exercising and possibly since this is a tourist area and people don't fuck with the tourists and I look like I could be a tourist.. but either way it's good to pass that milestone in my train yard career like that, just look back and poof they are gone.
    Hey it's not all bad getting older..if I was a kid I don't know what they would have done.

    Gee, when is a chase story not a chase story? Sounds like you weren't chased at all. You've posted some nice stuff from your adventures but have to suggest you're going about things all wrong, and in a manner that will eventually lead to trouble for you/others.

    Ok I admit it..I go out just "looking for trouble".

    Am I on the wrong website?

    You're on the right website. I don't think you go looking for it, I believe you're doing things in a way that invites it based on a number of your posts. Nice pix though.

    Just living here and being involved is inviting trouble bruh...there's no ducking it really. Besides, I don't bomb I'm just documenting street art in Las Vegas so I don't see how my posts are putting anyone in any jeopardy.
    Thanks for your concern though.

    Well......

    I saw some trains pull in and I grabbed the bike and went to make a pass yesterday and this time there was A legit looking RR employee at the front of the train talking with the engineer and since I know they are getting used to seeing me and I got a positive response from one recently in the form of a head nod and all the foundation I have laid being respectful and looking respectable I decided to pass by on the asphalt path as a test with the camera strapped around my neck...and not only did no one get called on me after I went and turned around and made another pass taking pictures but the guy didn't even challenge me with hard eye contact or anything...

    Of course I'll continue to be low impact but it looks like I'm good to go!

    What a boon for a true GRAFFITI LOVER.

    When I was about 14, I was tagging a brick wall of this hole-in-the-wall plaza that was right nearby a massive graveyard. In retrospect, it was a really stupid place for me to try tagging because there were actually people around and it was only starting to get dark outside, but keep in mind I was also 14. I hadn't even checked to see if there were cameras which was even extremely stupid for a 14-year-old, but I'm guessing there was because the convenience store owner came out with a broom and was shouting at me to get away. I was, thankfully, faster and more agile than him so I ran into the graveyard and into a bush, where I was able to get behind a massive gravestone to hide and watch until he went away. The only smart thing (well, it's just basic common sense lmao) I did was wear a ski mask. It was a convenience store I used to go to and buy energy drinks so the guy had seen me around the plaza, so good thing he couldn't see my face and recognize it later on.
