That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.
You can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
Almost as cute as a wild boar baby.
Montanoceratops! That’s a good one. I thought it was a dog at first glance upon scrolling down. Then I saw the ears and bump on it’s nose along with it’s tail and knew it’s a prehistoric dog!
I made one of these for my grandson recently. Cute little thing that Montanoceratops:
Barb – that is so cute? Crochet?
Thanks, Candice. Crochet.
Free pattern found on the internet.
was that your handwork we see at Picaso? If so…you are number 1 today. Crochet or knitt? Cool.
thanks. Yes, my handiwork. Crochet. How ’bout if I take the number 2 spot today, right behind Matt?
it is yours Barb…I am sure Matt wont mind you sitting at the top. Thanks for sharing. My girls might like one of them.
I think I have your email on the other side….I will reach out to you there.
There used to be a toy store in the building by this dinosaur – Amazing Toys. It moved a little ways down the street a couple years ago and the dino didn’t get to follow :( . Story time…When I was about 11 years old, me and a buddy used to walk downtown for the summer afternoons, we stopped in Amazing Toys for some goodies. The owner had just acquired the dino, and we were the first young’ns to come by. He asked us if we were creative, we said heck yeah (of course!). He asked us to name the dinosaur. We huddled together for a few minutes and came up with “Nibbles.” Keep in mind we were young :) It is noted on the plaque. Hope Matt read it!
Lovely – What’s that dino made of? Concrete?
shined petrified dino jung…….I mean realy that would be cool.
Looks like Granite. Must be heavy if it could not go down the street w/the move
I’m not sure exactly what it is, but it could very well be granite. The shined dino dung’s a good idea….where were you when this was just a sparkle in the maker’s eye, Jeff?? Tiny addition to my above story…when we named it, there was a small potted plant beneath it’s head. It looked like he was munchin’ on some greens….hence “Nibbles”
yea…I had to let that call go to voicemail. Woops…always passing up on opportunity. I like the name Nibbles with or without the story. These things were huge and vegetarians. Nibbles is excactly the name for them.
Great side story Megan… thanks for sharing the inside scoop…
Looks like a bronze cast with a weathered patina from being outside. Megan, next time you’re walking by it give it a gentle tap. If it chimes it’s probably bronze. A thunk and it’s stone/granite. Thanks for the Nibbles story.
if it smells – dino dung?
Again, with the personalization of Hobo Nation. Great story! Thanks for sharing.
What a great “rest of the story” Megan in Great Falls MT. Makes the walk with Matt a little more personal.
My comment didn’t post :( I’ll try again. There used to be a toy store, Amazing Toys, in the building by this dinosaur. It moved a little ways down the street a few years ago and the dino didn’t get to follow. When I was about 11 years old, a friend and I were walking downtown on a summer afternoon and we stopped in Amazing Toys for some goodies. The owner had just acquired this dino and we were the first young’ns to come by. He asked if we were creative, we said heck yeah! He asked us to name the dinosaur. We took a couple minutes and came up with “Nibbles.” We were young :) It is noted on the plaque. I hope Matt read it! It’s nothing special really, but for young kids, we were SO excited that we got to name him and the name is forever engraved on the plaque. A few years ago, the owner got a hold of us again for the ribbon cutting when he moved his store. Welcome to Great Falls, Matt!!
MEGAN IN GREAT FALLS, MT
What a great childhood memory!!! So cool….. thanks for sharing with the HOBO NATION your “NIBBLES” story!!!
And -I have not been to Montana yet except through the travels and photos of Matt Hobo Green, but I have heard great things from everyone I know who has been to your great state. My younger brother fly fishes in Montana every year and loves it!
Could the HOBO NATION adopt “NIBBLES” as our offical mascot? What does everyone think about this?
Thanks again for sharing!
Oops, sorry! My computer is messin with me.
Cute! I like him.
How awesome was that Megan? What a thrill for kids. Kudos to the store owner for getting the local kids involved. :)
Barb V…your version is so cute!!!
First thing I though of when I first saw this was the following-
Matt, take some of that good Montana 99.9% bottled water and pour on this thing and PRESTO –
Hope you did not use the toliet plunger on it to flush it down the street.
Really “NIBBLES” should be the HOBO NATION MASCOT!
