Hey everyone,
Ihavent seen my old bro Carl Lee Smock in a lotta years. He's an old rail tramp goes by the name Butch. Last time i saw him years ago he was squattin Helena Montana, and also Missoula. We go way back to the early 90's when we met at a viaduct barbeque under the North temple bridge in Salt lake City. We tramped around for awhile, till i went to prison out of Billings Mt for 10 years. He's a tough old dog, about 60 now. Anyone out there know of him or his whereabouts please contact me to at least let me know he's still kickin. Thank you everyone.

So at first I thought you said "Dutch", but you said Butch which is a pretty common handle. I know a locomotive engineer here in my town thats named Butch. Do you know his full name or have any other details? I have some other connections that are closer to your age that might know. I'm 34.

OH WAIT CARL LEE SMOCK, ok. Never heard of him but I cant try and help.

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.

Nearly done with the electrical system of the van. 170Ah Lithium ion, 2/4K inverter, 400 watt of solar, 40A MPPT controller. Should be up and running (or explode) this weekend.

After that I have to finish the primary work table, which will be the last big piece of the build.

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.
