Thank you for this link about Hobos
I added this link to the page of Hobo information.
I sometimes forget to think about the Hobos, there are a couple of newsletters and announcement type letters where Train Hoppers and Hobos comment on a regular basis. The terms, the ideas, the lore of the Hobo is long much more complex than people at first realize. I sometimes wish to discover better ways to help the history of the Hobo to survive.
The term Train Hoppers is connected at the hip with most Hoboes and they often see train hopping as the essential definition of a Hobo. It is not my place to definition a Hobo, as in reality the terms is or less historical.
Thanks for you post.

Maybe not popular, however, you have a nice niche blog.
I found a site devoted to hobos. I looked on your hobo page but didn't notice it listed there so I'm passing it along.
