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.
Gosh, that’s beautiful!!! Almost like the stone assembled itself there, just to hold the blue sky…
Lovely sentiment, Lily. I like that idea.
Looks Greek to me! :-) We see lots of those kinds of houses here on Paros! Or maybe some Greek settlers came that way….way back when?
I am sure it has stories to tell…..did you sit awhile and “listen”?
How about a hilltop fortress to watch for those Native American Indians trying to protect thier land.
Ruins! Did you climb the hill and look around? Must have been peaceful up there.
Nice. If you’ve read The Shack by Paul Young, you might see Papa standing right out front with flour on her apron.
Did you sleep there?
The shack looks interesting and if only rocks could talk! Those boulders near by it look looming like “watch out below!!”
Doesn’t quite make my vision of a “shack”…you know, broken down small “wooden” building…weather-worn wood…a horse shoe above the door (hanging down…”luck pouring out”, hanging down)…but though it doesn’t fit my picture…it sure fits Matts’…and he is the top hobo here…I yield to the gentleman from, ahhhh…well, everywhere…
I just can’t call that a shack – ruin – yes, but not a shack.
It looks like it was built by someone with not a lot of knowledge of “building with stone”.
Someone like ME! :) Just stack ’em and hope they don’t fall down.
we call them “smoke shacks” in Colorado, haha
I wonder if it was ever finished…I say that because it reminds of some projects around the house I’ve started, but never was quite able to complete.
Glad yr walkin’ the Washington side of the river. The Oregon side is gorgeous and has Multanomah Falls but the WA side has more weirdness like the shack and the lil’ Stonehenge replica. Being in FL it’s been a treat to see your pics from my ol’ stomin’ grounds of WA state.
HOW SAD!!….for us. SO HAPPY!!….for Hobo Matt. He spent last night in Lyle, WA. Google’s walkin’ mans route shows 167 miles to Rockaway Beach. If he keeps doing his 25 miles a day, it’s possible….make that probable he will be in Rockaway Beach on Sunday.
Party Pooper…(did I spell that right???)…
Donna in MI…you know that’s just a joke…we all feel about the same way as you…sad and happy…it will be a good time for Matt when it is over…
Jim in AR via MN,
You betcha! I think many of us will be crying tears of happiness for Matt because he has has finally reached his destination after walking 3100+ miles, and tears of sadness because our Hobo Planet’s vicarious journey has come to an end.
I’M not a “Party Pooper”! HOBO MATT IS THE “PARTY POOPER”!! Blame it on him! Party pooper….party pooper. He’s putting an end to our “Party” and our Hobo Nation/Planet. boo hoo boo….. boo hoo hoo….tissue please….make that a handful of tissues.
Here Donna…I’m close enough to you to throw you a whole box…*toss* ouch! I think it came back and hit me on the head. Threw it more up than over. Sorry.
Ha! Too funny, Dorinda!
Hmmmm…..interesting…old wild wild west leftovers?….
It’s a fort! Let’s go play!
