There's a section here about "we haven't heard from a real hobo about if this is true," and I'm a hobo and I agree that it's true. There's a lot of heming and hawing about the tramp v. hobo thing, but we by and large agree with the distinction that a hobo travels and works, a tramp travels and doesn't work, and a homebum stays in one place and doesn't work. It gets blurry, of course: if you travel in a car, and work, you're still a "rubber tramp," for example. -margaret killjoy
