The text presents three modes of both existing and possible writing of history of tramping. 1. Historical topography of tramping inspired by Dějiny trampingu by Bob Hurikán which focuses on documentation of particular tramp settlements and camps and their histories while revealing ideas about tramping of the period. 2. History of tramping as academic narrative-synthesis working with ideas of continuities and historically constantphenomena about tramp communities through last decades of contemporary history. 3. Genealogy of tramping, deconstructing tramping phenomenon by showing several inspirations, irregularities, motives and events which created its lasting forms and contents. Genealogy helps to historize tramping by its closer connections with political, social, cultural and economical events.
