This is a question Hitchhiking and fare dodging

Epic tales of the thumb, the open road and getting robbed by hairy-arsed truck drivers. Alternatively, travelling for free like a dreadful fare-jumping cheat. Confess.

Coolest hitch EVA
When I was a kid I used to volunteer at the Bluebell Railway - I was into steam engines, as many boys are. Me and a mate would hop off the bus as it went under the line, then scramble up the bank, wait for an engine to puff around the corner, and stick out our thumbs. Since they knew us, they'd stop and we'd hop on to the train.

There's nothing quite as satisfying as the jealous stares from all the trainspotters and their dads as we casually hitched a lift on a steam-train...

Thumbs? Yeah right. You waved your massive white bloomers.

His mate was chuffed to bits when he fell in front of the train.

Are you sure about that?

He didn't say "more satisfying".
So we can presume that there is a low, but very specific, level of satisfaction to be enjoyed by making trainspotters jealous... and that no other human activity/activities can achieve exactly that level.
