It was at the Montana Folk Festival in Butte. Fuck. 2011? 2012? A lifetime and a half ago. You had a bird's wing tucked in your bandana and a rope tail. You were probably my biggest influence towards this life. We just bullshitted around Butte for 2 hours, showed you my dad's bus (its come a long way). I do believe you still, that whether in this life or the next we'll meet again.

But I'll be damned if I haven't asked almost every traveler I've come across, i'f they'd ever met a Dingo. Nothing. I'll see you someday.

Be safe, have fun. But mostly be safe.

I too have not seen the dirty kid that got me into travelling since the day i spent with them ten years ago, nor have i met anyone that knows him. I hope they're ok, i still remember his alice pack, the three remaining pbrs on the rings dangling from his hand and a cracked one in the other hand while his pitbull walked beside him down farnam street in my hometown. He passed me outside of a punk house i was at and stopped turned around took a drink and asked whos playing tonight. I hope you find your long lost friend too.

Hmm that is soo random that you haven't come across someone who at least recognises the name... Hopefully you guys cross paths again someday or some bit of info finds you saying he's okay. As for the guy who 'got me into travelling'/living on the street I'm not sure my heart would survive setting eyes on him again.

Haha omg when I first started travelling people would leave my company saying "Be Safe" as a goodbye and I being all very new to walking around cities at night & just the whole life. I would get all sketched out wondering why they said to 'be safe' creeping myself out with thoughts of being mugged or other stereotypical things from movies :) I think I eventually shyly asked one of my friends & ended up feeling so silly cuz they were like "I mean just don't do anything like walk down a sketchy alley or smash too much stuff all at once" basically be cautious... But I guess Be Cautious doesn't roll off the tongue as easy. Anyway one rambling thought later... I bid you adieu

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$105.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Nice picture, on the Wikipedia "hobo" page... I was working on that page a little, a few weeks ago. It's a total mess and I just scratched the surface, but I keep watching and hoping someone else will improve it. That photo improves it for sure. Wish I knew enough about hobo history to write something decent there.
