Day -5

Hobo Glamour Shots

March 22nd, 2010

We're just hangin' out

This is the cart I'll be pushing across the country. It's a converted Runabout stroller made and generously donated by Roger Berg. Check out the whole photo album.

Photos by Jason Eppink, who also designed this site for me.

    If you’re going to do a glamour shot, at least wear a speedo.

  2. Ben says:

    the other hoboes are going to be soo jealous

  3. Chris says:

    Deer Mat,

    You look like you should be naked in that picture. It’s very coy!

  4. Jessamyn says:

    The before shot.

  5. Emily says:

    The cart needs an orange safety flag (on a tall pole). You want to be highly visible to traffic…

  6. Zan says:

    I have to second Emily with the safety-flag — what can I say, it’s my inner Jewish grandmother coming out (though I know you already have one of those). As to the rest of the photo, you look adorable. Oh, wait, sorry, that’s Bubbe-speak again… :)

    Have a blast Matt!!

  7. Jen Small says:

    Hi Matt,

    I’m a friend of Jason’s – have we met?

    Totally thirding the safety flag. We all like safe Matt. Also seconding the speedo.

  8. Hello Matt,
    Hope that all is going well with you after meeting you today. I read you page and if I knew that you needed a hot meal, a shower, and a place to camp out I would have offered it to you. Matt you were only 3 minutes from my home. I wish I could do more. Wishing you all the best and success.

    God Bless and be SAFE!!!!

    Okay Matt, right now you’re somewhere in the Tillamook State Forest in Orgegon, and everyone is anxiously awaiting your next post. I just came back to the beginning of your journey to entertain myself until we see you again. And I see you already knew Roger Berg! I thought you just happened to meet him a few days ago. ;-)

  12. David Hollingsworth says:

    You’re such a charming guy!
