Some of you on here make YouTube videos, like Crazy Hobo Johnny, Koala, Coywolf, Matt Derrick ect.. But also what are some of the other Hobos/Travellers from youtube that you think are good, entertaining, informative ect..

By no means a complete list but here's a few missing from the list.
RanOutOnARail
Brian Cray
John E. Ringo
I think these guys all create really good content.
Oh I found Koala's chan too, was already subbed so nvm that.

Lastly, shameless plug. Here's something not so much directly train related but it's a fantastic channel a buddy of mine does. A low-brow crass approach to plant ecology as muttered by a misanthropic Chicago Italian. Crime Pays But Botany Doesn't. There's definitely some train stuff too. If you spend enough time geeking out on this channel you'll actually find numerous videos of TrainDoc sprinkled throughout, if that's of any interest to ya.

The best ones I ever seen are legendary old school - Wizehop, Railroad Ron, Shoestring, and @Matt Derrick (and someday Stobe the Hobo!)

I do support the current ones - John E. Ringo, Owen, and Brian Cray - good stuff.

Then the ones I excused myself from supporting - Jeff Seal, Adventure Katz, Stu the Jew, Metro Man 5150, Brave Dave, Trevor Jacob, the list may go on...

I like TC!!!!

I don't watch YouTube train vids, my internet is slow and I find them incredibly boring for the most part. Thats just me though, more power to all who want to make videos and tell us riders some insights on the road baby!!!!!

Nice, shoestring is an awesome guy. He has a lot of stories to tell, and a lot of tips about train hopping.

Good to see you're off that Brave Dave train, dudes a massive chode.
True. That.

Ya I have to throw a +1 out there to Stobe. He is pretty much the reason (not the only) I got into riding.

Also, I do love Showstring, Owen, Ringo, and some other obscure documentaries about riding out there on YT.

Some of those docs are so fuck in ng bad though. There is one that this English dude does, where he picks up some seriously oogle kids on a filming adventure to capture Americas 'travel' culture, and proceeds to use the information they give him as though it's the scripture. Cant really blam him I guess, he didnt have anything else to go off of.

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.
