Day 103

I found a photo album beside the road today

July 7th, 2010

This was the best picture in it.


  1. Craig ( NC!) says:

    Bro.. post them all and see if anyone comes up with something… that pic seems to be from the 80’s
    Let’s find ’em!

  2. Yes, try to find them. But my first thought was the ’70’s. A whole album you say? It’s gotta be something that blew away in a tornado maybe? Gotta be a way to post them online somewhere to find the people. Or take it with you to the next town and see if folks there know who they may be. This is so cool. Meeting people even in photo’s along you’re way. Even they are watching out for you.

  3. Don in Tennessee says:

    Looks a lot like CHARLES MANSION to me. Check his prison cell to see if he is missing.

  4. Craig ( NC!) says:

    Ok On further thought,
    this is a member of either Van Zant, 38 special, Lynyrd Skynyrd , G’ovt Mule, rossington- collins band or maybe
    Allen Collins or Gary Rossington’s band one of their love children.
    Could be Charlie Daniels or one of his boys at a early age with a new LOVE child…. wow I miss the 70s.

  5. Jeff says:

    wow…and I know all those bands too…age check.

    Well my first thought is a father and his daughter. I have a few of these. I am thinking eightys era early though. Nice find. Hope you kept it…Like that Hanks movie. you must find the owner…or try

  6. Angelica says:

    Yeah I agree, take it to the next town and see if anyone knows anything. This dude looks awesome! People just don’t grow facial hair that ambitious back East….

  7. Karen Too says:

    Is that a feather, or has his hair taken over the hat, too?

    Sweet picture, and beautiful baby. Is there a date on the back by any chance?

  8. carolyn says:

    the photo album must tell a great story. are there any dates on the photos?

  9. Bob SWA says:

    Looks like Hank Williams Jr.

  10. Leo says:

    I’m with Marshall. It looks a lot like Bocephus. Probably not, but isn’t it in Montana where he fell off the mountain, and then grew the beard to cover the scars?

  11. Jack says:

    Hank Williams Jr has a home in Montana.

  12. Glenda says:

    Hank doesn’t have a home in that part of the state, and no it did’t get deposited from a tornado that I know of in that area in the last decade, although Billings montana experienced a tornado that took of the Metra Roof and destoryed a motorcycle shop Sunday June 20th, ( )

  13. Saun in Ohio says:

    I’m thinking Marshall Tucker……

  14. Anna One in CA says:

    Maybe someone was moving their belongings and it blew/fell out of an open bed truck…

  15. mojinator says:

    he might even be a rider… with the gloves and the chaleco… and of course the bike behind him is a dead give-away! XD

  16. Stephen says:

    I kinda feel a visual connection to ZZ Top. How appropriate…. there’s a song on their Afterburner LP called “Sleeping Bag” that I’d like to dedicate to Matt’s nightly cocoon of comfort.

  17. kim says:


  18. I think he looks like Charlie Daniels, same era.

  19. katzien in austin says:

    This is like that camera that floated from Aruba to Florida, and the guy who found the camera posted the pictures to scube sites (since there were photos of scuba diving). People from all over the world identified elements in tbe photos and they found the owners. Turns out the guy was stationed in Aruba and his family was there for a while. So yes Matt… all the pics and talk to the towns-people and I bet you can find out who this belongs to. What a crazy cool tangent to your own journey….the journey of the photo album. !!!

  20. Beth in GA says:

    No, guys – it looks like a Toby Keith twin!

  21. Earl says:

    Late 70’s with possibly a early to mid 80’s hangover…one day he woke up and didn’t see “Honey suckle rose” on MTV and ditched that whole scene..

  22. jane doe says:

    s my dad…………….

  23. jane doe says:

    thats my dad……………………

  24. Mark in NC says:

    How about turning into the local police department or the town hall. Maybe someone local lost it.

  25. Dennis from So Cal says:

    He’s wearing driving gloves…maybe he was a truck driver?

  26. Anna One in CA says:

    The album might belong to a local, but the photo may be of a distant friend or relative — no palm trees in MT…

  27. Lori says:

    Definitely Bocephus!

  28. Pacis says:

    That’s Charlie Daniels.

  29. Brenda Senne says:

    What if the photo album belonged to him and his wife and they recently divorced and she thru it out the window? (I vote for Hank Williams Jr)

  30. Chelsea says:

    Hank Williams Jr!

  31. Ridge says:

    It’s important to wear weight lifting gloves when holding an infant.

  32. Renee says:

    TOTALLY Bocephus (aka Hank Williams, Jr.)!
