Well, Hobo Nick and his Hobo parents asked me to be there on his last day and I told him were gonna do something better, we are going to do a BBQ Beach party. We have spoke about this for the last few days and feel this will be amazing way to end his journey and begin the larger one....whats next? No one knows.... In the mean time- do something great and show up to this event- It will be amazing.

Date; September 29th (all day)
Where: Huntington Beach Pier - he expects to hit the water by 2pm is the goal

Specific Location: At a motorhome set up in the parking lot just south of the pier closest to the official camping area for Motorhomes. So im basically pulling into the public parking lot when it opens at 7am and driving as close to the Pier as I can to set up cones and Caution tape for a big BBQ area. We will also (with the help of friends and hopefully you) hoard the closest Fire pits to the parking spots too for night time bonfires if anyone wants to help with that and bring wood and stuff.

We will not be pimping this event out with lame Tshirts or corp sell out crap or anything like that but his family and I will be BBQ Cheesburgers and Hotdogs and stuff for donations only. Yes- the donations will go to help Hobo Nick give back the way HE sees fit to the homeless or in a manner in which HE determines and to take a much needed few weeks off chilling in the OC on some of the finest beaches known to mankind with his friends.

It would be an honor for any and all of you to come and help blow this up as the best HOBO MOTO movement ever- whatever that means.

Cheers to the adventure!
GHR

PS Yes we are preparing for a Hobo Baja Race next year. Thats a whole nother'goal.

1000 miles, on foot, across the desert... first one across or last one to die wins...

a Hobo Race is when Hobo Nick gets on a Honda and tries to do the Baja 1000 with me and a couple other slow ass dudes haha

C'mon Crashnburn do something great, drive 280 miles south and have a Burger and Beer. You wont regret it.

Bump...

Below is a quick map of Nick's potential path from his current location. I did the walking path option. Nick is approx 30 plus miles from his destination with an approx total walk time left at 9-10 hours.

Saturday will be a blast-
Also FYI tomorrow around noon (PAC time) and again I think in the afternoon Hobo Nick will be on CBS news channel 2 and also KTLA channel 9. I tracked down the news van and they loved the story so today they spent a solid 3-4 hours on the story it was classic. When it is aired I will post a link. It was gonna air today but the damn brush fire out by the old saddleback track bumped the Hobo story.

Also BDW will be there Saturday to photog the event! Hes awesome we spoke today and apparently he lives in HB too.

Hope to see as many peeps as possible. It could be 100 on low end and up to 500 on high end? Anyway Hobo is super pumped about it all and he's just plain tired of walking haha.

I dropped off his long time best buddy Rhett last night so the are Hobo Bromancing each other now haha

Cheer Vital peeps hope to see you Saturday!

I saw Nick on HWY 62 last Sunday, just east of 29 Palms. Didn't realize it was him until I went by.

I told my gf that was Hobo Nick like she was supposed to know who he is. Haha.

I will need help tomorrow morning and through most of the day, anything anyone of you can do to help me would be great, just ask I will tell you. This is going to be a big event! First and foremost I need help tying up as many parking spots next to my Motorhome as possible so we can rope off an area for the afternoon BBQ. I will be there when gates open (i think thats at 7am? I dont know I will be down there at 6:30 am to be safe). Anyone that can be there early with me would be huge to grab firepit and parking spots as close to the Pier as possible in the south public parking lot.
