Daniel Ray Pickral, born in 1957, comes from an agricultural background. After he graduated from college he traveled around the country and lived "wherever Amtrak went." He discovered skating and started skating and hitchhiking around the country, paying his way with odd jobs and giving interviews to strangers about his travels and lifestyle. Once he got to Cleveland, in 1991, he knew this was the place to settle because of the people's generosity. While in Cleveland he has picked up litter, helped stray dogs, been associated with the Cleveland Public Theatre, helped people set up community and private gardens, and has mostly remained homeless, living a semi-nomadic life.
