The 2012 National Hobo Convention

Did you know there's such a thing as the National Hobo Convention? Up until 5 minutes ago, I sure didn’t.

Matt Stopera of BuzzFeed spent three nights with hoboes in Britt, IA -- the “hobo capital of the world” -- and shares his experience. This convention’s been going 112 years strong; being a hobo is serious business.

This most definitely goes into the I-learn-something-every-day file. Fascinating.
