STOBE THE HOBO-THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST#1-MISSOULA TO SEATTLE-TRAINHOPPING-RAILFAN – Seattle Videos



Stobe the Hobo commences arguably the most scenic mission in America- the Pacific Northwest. The entire trip is Missoula to Seattle, south to Portland, and then to Whitefish. This episode features Missoula to Seattle on 3 separate trains first along the Clark Fork river to Sandpoint ID, then thru the desert to Wenatchee, and finally over the cascades to Seattle. Amazing scenery is accompanied by 90s grunge music arranged for piano.

  1. Your wanting to jump into the river from the train reminded me of a guy
    in the documentary Gizmo! (The segment starts at around 31 : 22, the vintage
    jump is a little over a minute later)

    The Stobe spirit may be dormant in most but has been with humanity
    forever. (Gizmo! is a great doc by the way, with Stobe-worthy background
    music throughout.)

  2. Very cool! You ever ride over the Stampede Pass line? It's the other route over the Cascades in WA – a bit south of the Stevens Pass/Cascade Tunnel route. I believe it's a BNSF line. Anyway, great stuff man!

  10. Hey Stobe, if you're ever heading through Northern/Central California and need a place to crash you're more than welcome here. I'm close to Sacramento. Also, I've gotten out of the Army recently and have lots of sturdy surplus gear if you need anything. As I understand it, you were in the USCG. Thank you for your service! You're videos are awesome man, I live vicariously through you.

  22. Who loves ya? May huh… Coincidentally I spied that someone threw (or drank) a can of Steehl 221 or whatever in front of my house this a.m. the 29th of rainy March and I thought it was you and then this grand episode appears and I'm like, going to drink beer on a dock maybe and figure out where I've seen that final view before! I like it how someone comes in the door during your recording. I thought it was at my house! Was that the… engineer?! "Get that piano off of my train!"
