So I ended up only being there for like a day but it was pretty sweet! And there we're a bunch of kids who actually hop freight trains there and all the older people actually hopped trains back in the day. Everyone in the town was super nice and welcoming.

Yeah it's cool - I'm fully aware that it has little to nothing to do with actual hobo-ing anymore. I just look at it as a little slice of Americana. I've never been to a small town parade like that. I also wanna check out the museum.
I wanna check out the Hobo Convention in Britt before I go to a friends wedding in Brookings South Dakota. If anyone is driving from NYC to anywhere near that area I'd share driving/gas. Minneapolis works too.
