Apparently the Hobo is not alone in his journey. There are many others who enjoy this new concept called funemployment. Check out the term on Google!
Also, an update - Retirement Hobo has taken this year to do a number of things - he traveled all over South East Asia and learned many truths about how employment works in other countries (and how the USA is one difficult place to get a job with a decent wage in comparison). He has also taken more time to focus on improving his community through a number of volunteer organizations. And of course, he has been figuring out a way to make his retirement work a quarter way into his life.
However, the Hobo has definitely failed in his quest to document his journey publicly - but it is better late than never!
