Hi everybody I have been doing a lot of reading since I got into the Modeling thing and have gotten bit by the real railroad bug. Through this I have found a lot of information on Hobos. Now I would be the first to say some are and were in the past down right thieves but in the true Hobo community "yeggs" thieves were shunned. A true Hobo lived life by a code of conduct, worked for what he got evin if it meant picking up dog doo in the front yard for a meal if he couldnt find work to make a straight wage. My question is what do yall think of Hobo's then and now as there are still many who ride the rails today. I have been to the National Hobo Convetion in Britt Iowa and I must say that all in all they are a nice group of people as the case may be. Some like I said are on the outskirts of human world but I know a few Quote average Joes that are that way also. My personal opinion is yes they are breaking the law hopping trains but what the hey who of us havnt been know to bend the rules at times to enjoy life that we love. From all the things I have read and learned from them they are good moral people that just like to be free to watch the world go bye from a seat in a RR car and wouldnt do a thing to harm the RR that they love so much. But drop a line and lets see what yall think.
