“The National Hobo Convention has been held in Britt, Iowa, since 1900.”
Vagabonds! People who work and wander without many dollars to their name or a permanent place to call a home! Scott Lamb has a great story (and photos), of going to the National Hobo Convention, and meeting with the eclectic crowd. They even do a rendition of “Call Me Maybe” on a recorder (seriously, no one can escape that song). Also, if you wander, but don’t work, you’re a tramp. And if you don’t wander or work, well you’re just a bum. The more you know.
