Hobo News from Colorado Central County
Spring nights bring the low, long moan of a freight crawling up the ruling grade. That sound makes solid citizens roll over in their sleep and remember some hobo dreams. When the nights get warm some of our readers vow to “by golly go rail ridin’.”
Not many will actually go hoboing and some hobos do eventually get over spring fever and settle down. Wayne Iverson for instance. He rode the rails for twelve years, but now he’s settled down in Colorado Central country and written a book you can buy at the Book Haven. Hobo Bob, on the other hand is still catching out on freights and he’s got to be over sixty. Both of their stories are great.
