    Hobo Coms

    I saw the article recently where the cabin was found on public land out west and an eviction notice was posted on the door recently and was impressed with how the occupant removed every single piece of his or her cabin and property from the site and left nothing behind except for the international squatter symbol. It made me wonder if there were other signs and symbols in use now like those used by the hobos of a century ago.

    I've found a little bit and will continue looking.

    "Over the years, the hobo subculture has declined dramatically. One reason for this is that the hobo community was so intricately connected with the American railway. It’s much more difficult to hop on and off of a freight train undetected than it was a hundred years ago, so rail-loving hobos have steadily declined in number. Still, current estimates put around 20,000 people in the U.S. living the hobo lifestyle today. It’s easy to see why there’s not much specific data available about these wandering workers, but some sources suggest that the modern hobo movement is the result of a generation’s shunning of modern trappings. Much like city hipsters, modern hobos embrace fringe society…although living in train cars with no permanent home or job is taking that fringe society fetish much further than most hipsters ever dream of."

        Very interesting. I lived on "the street" for a little while when I was young and met a lot of great people doing it. Some people just get tired of our fake ass society and drop out. I can't blame them.

          I read about this cabin too and saw pictures of the inside. The eviction notice was because it was on Land Bureau or National Parks land.

          Some think it was a woman who was living in the cabin.

                  Clinton was the one that started burning down generations old hunting cabins that were on 'public land'. Access roads became gated all across the country, as hunters well know, makinh it difficult to enjoy the woodlands without permits and cops. Obaba has taken it even farther, booting people out of remote desert areas and doing whatever he can to lock americans off their own 'public lands'.

                    During the federal shutdown they put up roadblock signs along the scenic views in the Smokeys that nature was "closed". Idiots.

                    Of course it was a pressure tactic just to make the public feel panicked. I hate how the "rulers" think they can control us with their mind games. Mostly because it works more often than not.
