7. What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?

I read many hobo novels and always wanted to hop a train and finally did it one day from Oakland to Iowa. It took me five days and at one point someone tried to get into my same boxcar in the middle of the night. Lots of solitude, but not actually that fun. You don’t get to ask for restroom breaks either.

8. Fun fact about yourself?

I was kicked out of Lenin’s tomb in Moscow when I was 8.
