"Top stars, top trusted, top advice." 

Hobo Travel is not for everyone, it for people who want to make the world a better place, and willing to say, "This is my name, and this is my opinion." The more stars, the more we trust you, if you have no desire to help others, then please don't join. Hobo Travel is a philosophy of life, the more friends, the better.

Anonymous people are strangers, and not to be trusted.

The Travelers Creed, important to read.

Verification is our belief that anonymous people cause problems, while stand up, and be counted people are in the business of helping. Bad Boys, and Bad Girls have a "Grace Period," of 3 days; broken windows, and weaving spider get no grace...

Verification stops what is common on many Expat sites:

- Talking to strangers - You are making expensive travel plans, to meet people on the other side of planet, it is dangerous to talk to strangers

- Shame Blamers - People who say your honest question is stupid, there are no stupid questions on Hobo.

- Weaving Spiders - Weaving a good story, to sell us something.

- Broken Windows - When one broken comment, this makes other members  throw rocks, and the more windows get broken.

- Armchair-ing -- Giving advice for a location you have never visited.

-- 3C - Conspicuous Consumption Comparisons - When members want to say they spent more, therefore better, while normally the more a person spends, the less travel savvy. We do not care that people spend money, but to infer they are clever is to 3C someone.

Greetings, I am Andy Lee Graham, founder of / the Hobo Travel Community, I have lived abroad for 22 years, in 112 countries.

We believe it is our duty, our ethical obligation to notify members as to the quality of the members inside the Hobo Network. Therefore we encourage members to update their profiles and will assist members in proving, or vetting themselves so each member is safe to be contacted, or give advice.

Soon you will be able to say,
"Only allow 39 or, or 80 Star Members may contact me."

This is a huge challenge, and the reason networks like Facebook do not care, this slows the money tree from growing. We want you to learn from the best of the best, and know when people are not to be trusted.

First, we need to prove you are real person!

And yes, we know this can be spoofed, we will weigh you, and measure you.
