1. I admired the Hobo "Steam Train" Maury Graham the most so far, and his explanation of the Hobo lifestyle. I like that they don't care about money, and they had honour and were respectable (compared to bums). They would help out their fellow human beings for what they needed to survive or wanted. They traveled alot, and seemed like all around decent people.
He demonstrated the teem of creativity by way of the Hobo lifestyle. Because they were always moving and always in a different place doing different things for different people, their lifestyle was always unpredictable, and therefore: creative.
2. What surprised me most in the story was the passage "The whiskey on your breath could make a small boy dizzy" because it showed just how drunk his father was most of the time. What I learned from this, not so much learned but got re-assured on, was how much alcohol can effect other people, and why to stay away from it.
3. How many hobo's are still in the US? What has the mindset of the Hobo, as told in the story, become today?
