This rules.

I used to watch this video all the time - it came free with a different Etnies DVD with Dig years ago, and has now been uploaded by Joe Rich. Awesome video, super inspiring!

”Six weeks, 1 regluar sized back pack for each of the 2 of us, 1 super 8mm camera, 1 DV video camera, 1 35mm film photo camera, 2 bmx bikes, $400 in train tickets each = 1 amazing adventure. We had the most basic of plans . . . Leave Malaga, Spain by train, and arrive in Prague (Czech Republic) six weeks later. No day was ever mapped out before hand. We’d take a train to a new city, leave the station upon arrival, and see what we could get into. Some cities we stayed for days, others just over night. “Chance” and “Wonder” were our co-pilots. Exploration and adventure go hand in hand, add in our loose schedule and we had ourselves one amazing journey . . . .

This trip was taken by myself and Ruben Alcantara almost 5 years ago. It was put out along with an Etnies Road Trip video that came with Dig issue number 52. Because it was being burned on a hard copy, I had to use different music for the second half of the Train Trip. This was the music I originally edited it with. This played all last year on the Bicycle Film Festival Tour around the world. I’ve gotten a number of requests to put this up online. So here it is, Freaky Friday February 19th, 2010. Enjoy !” - Joe Rich/Terrible One

Great to know Train Trip is now online (thanks, Joe!!) - it's got to be one of the best BMX videos ever made.
