DIY Hobo Sack

I'm not going to lie, as a kid, I wanted to be a hobo. Freedom on the open rails, eating beans out of a can, sharing stories with fellow travelers around a campfire--it all seemed so awesome. I had mostly given up on the dream until I came across the Laugh-Out-Loud Cats cartoon series, featuring Meowlin Q. Kitteh and Pip. Those two crazy cats revitalized my longing for the hobo lifestyle. And now, a post from a blog called "the cottage at frog creek" makes it all seem possible with instructions for sewing your own bindle.

I just sent this link to my friend Bryan. We used to joke a lot about "bindles." Not sure why. It sounds crass now. But the word is so damn funny.
