Comments My math teacher talked about when he was a teenager working at a diner he met the Hobo King at the time. I'm a film student and my next project is to make a do #$@%! I was wondering if anyone knows of any jungles or fellow Hobos around California who I could meet. It would be a great honor to be able to tell their story. PLEASE CONTACT ME SOON. Thanks so much!!!!

Comments I purchased a Hobo walking stick at the convention sometime in the early 80's. The names carved and signed on it are: Son of The Milwaukee Line, Rick Sykes Grand Duke Of Hobos, Billy D Bassett McDonald For 919 and others I cannot make out. Are these Hobos still around? Been a very long time, I use to do the sound for Merle Haggard and we Traveled 10 months out of the year on tour. I keep this by my door and walk with it in the neighborhood each weekend.

Comments In response to the plea from Lord Open Road's niece, Barbara Saunders Jones, on your "grapevine", please share this post from my website that includes a first hand account of Open Road and photographs of several senior 'dos taken at Britt during the 1977 convention. I would be grateful for any information on the identities of the two hobos not named. Please feel free to use any of the information or images from my site on your site. Best wishes, Ian Cutler

Comments Going to the Convention this year (2017) in Britt Iowa. I am related to Hairbreadth Harry (King of the Hobos 1933-1935). As I read up on Hairbreadth Harry, I find the following: he was a man "who wrote poetry, walked backward and bathed in gasoline." Wish I was around then, or he was around now, so that I could meet him. Hope to see a bunch of you in August !!! Randy
