Yeah 28 years is a long time. I did some shitty stuff 28 years ago. It would suck if people still held me accountable for those actions today as though I was the same person I was back then. Though I never did anything quite as fucked up as wearing a wire and getting someone incarcerated over just weed but yeah.. it's been a long minute. I imagine he's different by now. I just don't know if he's any better or worse. I do know he kicks it with some racist ass motherfuckers and considers them like brothers, so there's that.
I wouldn't write up a shady and untrustworthy post on the guy or anything, but I think it's worth mentioning when people praise him. He's also like.. the worst of the worst when it comes to e-begging. Making it out as though his situation is so dire people feel guilted into sending him money. And pedaling basic white T's with his shitty moniker scralwed on them with a marks-a-lot for an arm and a leg like he's a celebrity or some shit.
OP kinda has a track record of expecting a lot from people who have helped him out too though. Like basically telling people he's royally fucked and has no gear for cold weather and really needs a sleeping bag and shit like that and then goes and buys a knockoff GoPro instead with the money they send him.
So.. I guess if that's your get-down.. why not idolize someone like Shoestring. Shots fired.
i helped him on ebay, sent funds for meds,helped him with his class b rental rules in tennessee,spoke to him about he could earn income,spoke to him about monetizing his channel if he was allowed,sent linksI dont condone snitching but that's an article from 10 years ago. C'mon folks we have all done things were not proud of.
Nobody's perfect if there was any reason I would not respect anyone it wouldn't be for what they've done. But for not recognizing their mistakes. Holding sh# like that against people is toxic behavior just saying guys.
I'm sorry, but where did he post this? I don't understand.
go to his youtube channel and read his community postsHobo Shoestring2 days ago (edited)
I've been quite quiet lately and on the downlow for a certain reason but I should arrive in Britt Wednesday evening! When I get there I'll be approaching very hidden and if it looks like there's one official vehicle or unmarked car I'm bailing and turning around and not going. I don't want to end up king of the jail cot. Sorry for the absence.
a promo video where??? you're going to have to be MUCH more detailed than that.
sounds vaguely familiar.He'd be facing off against 6ix9ine though.
(for anyone that cares)
going all the way back to the top of this thread - I think the guy meant to type SELF - styled forum censors rather than SEL - styled... which would then make sense from his bullshit angle...
First off I’ve seen shoestring tag “90’s” just 7 years ago in laurel MT. Every place you here him talk about being years ago will have a brand new sharpie or paint marker Walmart has only had for 10 years “sign in”. It is true the old few around know him but not that well.here is the 2021 hobo king
national hobo king convention
there's a response by shoestring on not being king of the hobos

Yeah Britt doesn't care about how many miles a hobo rides or how many years ridden; it's all about flare. I'll never go back if it's political like this
