Comments My Husband worked for the NYC Hobo News in the 60's. Because they also had a delivery service he rode the bike through the city's traffic. He got to know people like Jack Karouac and delivered Mae West's auto-biography to the publisher. He was on the road for about 10 years...He worked in different small towns. He always was a mystery to me because he was a straight and narrow guy. He believed in freedom and our flag flew on every holiday, proudly, in front of our small house. Thank you. It sounds like a tough life but a person who lives it, knows they lived.

Comments My Husband when he was a kid, worked at the Hobo News in NY City. They also had a messenger service and he peddled all over the city delivering biographies of people like Mae West and was even invited to lunch by Park Ave. Ad agencies. He was on the road for many years...about 10...and even got to know people like Jack Karouac who loved the people on the road. This is a great site! I love the rules, I love the respect, I love knowing America is still free. Thank you!

Comments Hello! My aunt, Judy Waterman, was part of the Hobo community. She passed in February 1997, and is buried in Britt. I'm trying to find her Hobo name. Can you let me know if someone knows it? It's my understanding she was the Hobo Queen at one point but I'm unsure of the year so I am not able to match it up the list. Thank you!

Comments This was my 19th consecutive Nat’l Hobo Convention. It’s always good to meet-up with our Brothers & Sisters every year. But also sad as I miss the company of those that have caught the “West-bound”, and those others that weren’t able to make it to Britt this year. —Birdman—“The Grand Duke of INDIANA Hoboes”, dubbed as such by decree of Hobo Spike

Comments My Uncle T (who passed away a year ago today) was a hobo for part of his life. He was friends with Frog. Frog even made my Aunt G an honorary hobo. This is an awesome site, I wish I would have found it before he died so I could show it to him. Thanks for all the work that goes into keeping it updated!

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.
