Hobo mia ?

I came across several shots of Exavid and myself with Hobo. Got me to thinking, that was quite a phenomenon till 11-27-2015, as that thread just died on that post. Got me to thinking, where he be? Anyone know? So many of those members who handled him have gone by-bye.

Ok, curiosity is killing me.

Fill in us newcomers (even if I did join back in '13 I wasn't too active until recently) - who or what was/is Hobo???


EDIT: Nevermind, I found the thread referred to in the "similar threads" list below.
Very cool. Apparently Hobo was last seen in North Carolina from what I can tell.
I wonder what happened to him.

Sad to see all the early pictures are missing in that thread.
I'm guessing they were lost when big corp took over the website?
Damn bureaucrats.

yeah,

when big corp took over, they saw fit to just rename all of the forums without asking us...
that of course, broke every link that I had in my bookmarks....
links that I had been saving for 8 years, and we lost all of the gallery pictures, they just didn't bother to save them.

Hobo is a small toy bear, who gets to ride with a new attendee of NASR every year.
If you are on Facebook, he shows up there once in a while.

I am trying to remember who got him this last time, I think it was one of the Canadians.... Bob and Anita ???


there used to be a thread for him, but I can't find it right now. NASR is now hosted on the NAGF forum. we moved it there to get away from big corp who refused to help us host the rally. they simply don't give a damn.

Hobo was in Indiana at NASR, Carl now has him. He was in the mystery box at the auction.

I just wish Hobo once again would become the travel bug he was originally designed to be.

Seems like people get him and keep him for a year or so when he was supposed to be shown around your local area then you set up a meet with someone near you and pass him on. If that was done he could pass through 3 or 4 people in a seasons riding.

Doug,
I agree with you, we need to be passing Hobo on to folks that we know will take him traveling, ala, Ken Ventress... but he has done that several time already.


I am not a good candidate, because of my lack being a big traveler.

So, does anybody know where he/it is right now?

We could set up a relay route all around the country pretty easily.

Why ain't we ridin'?
