With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers - Hittin' the hobo camps ?

 

Yeah Blues King and gig bag. B)

 

Up at Cody's Camp, you could spend your days (with that Blues King, no doubt).

So - I nominated my Blues King and I am walking off into the distance travelling very light with a yellow gig bag.

 

BigKahune and WiseAxe have decided to watch me wander off while they stay and not make a decision about which guitar to take.

 

I was hoping to get a list of everyone's favourite travelling Gibson.....

I'd take my L-00 but with the hardshell case - it might be heavier that way but safer for the guitar and, besides, it gives you a place to sit when you get tired...

Ah, Jim. Gone too soon.

 

I hitched across the country in the late 60's with my J-45. It was a pain in the ***, and I was terrified we would get rained on. Also had one of those chipboard cases, so you couldn't exactly sit on it. Sat on my suitcase instead.

 

Not one of my smarter ideas, but someone was looking after me at age 20.

I think BK & I were both suggesting that Blues King guitar would be the perfect one to take

down to the crossroads with you. That shiny new axe just might get some mojo.

...personally I would want to hop a freight with anything bigger than a style 0 but its a moot point.

 

Here's a few who actually did: Elijah Wald http://www.elijahwald.com/hitchhiking.html ('Lijah's a good fingerpicker with a Josh Spence lesson). Also Ted Conovor http://www.amazon.com/Rolling-Nowhere-Riding-Americas-Hoboes/dp/0375727868/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_4 Besides trains, he's crossed the borders with illegals http://www.amazon.com/Coyotes-Journey-Borders-Americas-Migrants/dp/0394755189/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_3 . Both are good reads.
