Ok I have been kicking this around, I have spoken to a few members about this and I have finally came to a decision.
Hobo and I were talking about where he should go next, several people have shown an interest in being visited by Hobo but he will have to get there via plane, train or automobile. Hobo suggested that I auction him off to the next destination. What this means. I am going to hold an open auction - to close on December 7th at noon. The winning bidder will have Hobo shipped by me to them and I will cover the shipping costs. What Hobo and I hope the winning bidder will do is donate his winning bid to Longhaireddwb ( https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/forum4/33807.html ) via paypal or check or whatever. Obviously we can not actually confirm that the money was sent, so we trust you to send it.
Hobo and I decided that this should not be an every time thing - whoever wins the chance to meet Hobo may send him on his way in whatever way they chose. Hobo was reading about Longhaireddwb's situation and wanted to help. Being that the little lazy bugger spends all his time drinking, partying and cruising for women while not working, he realized he couldn't do anything to help so he suggested this.
Just reply to this thread with your bid amount - of course it needs to be more than the previous bid - and whoever has the high bid on the 7th at noon (US central time) will have Hobo for a visit - he can even be there to spend Christmas with you. I do warn you though, he will drink all of your liquor, take your wing out for a spin without your permission and on more than one occasion I have caught him in compromising situations with my youngest daughters teddy bears and beanie babies.
Hobo wants to make this his Christmas gift to Longhaireddwb and hopes you understand that he in no way is trying to upset anyone. He does not want this to be a consistent thing - he prefers to ride on the back of a bike instead of being boxed - but thought for this trip he would make the sacrifice in the hopes of making someone's life a little brighter.
I will start the bidding myself - I'll pay someone $5 to take him! What? oh Hobo says it doesn't work that way I will bid $5 to keep the little bugger over the holidays.
Please PLEASE someone outbid me - he's costing me more in liquor and public intoxication tickets than I can afford!

I guess that would be correct Redwing - I don't plan on asking for confirmation - the people at this site have been wonderful and I don't feel it would be necessary to confirm it.

May I just remind potential bidders of Hobo's rules: -



1. When my travels with a forum member are complete, that member must find me another travelling companion for my journeys. He must arrange to get me to the next member either by meeting up or sending me by post.

2. My travelling companion must keep a log of our travels including photographs which are to be forwarded to Geordiemuppet so that he can help me keep everyone updated.

3. If there is no riding in the winter, my travelling companion must return me to Geordiemuppet so that I can hibernate until conditions improve.




And on that note, I will push the bid up to $15 US

That's the simplest expression of the "root" desire.
