A few years ago, they were about the Art of Escaping the madness of the USA or something along them lines. Now, I would say it is a site to help expats who wish-they-never-purchased real estate to sell to un-suspecting people.

The site is a good site, has many informative links, however semi has stopped telling me how to escape and more about how to, - Buy the USA in another country. -
I have felt myself taking a long slippery ride down a meandering road, and I now can see at the end of the road is what I have been trying to escape all my life. More or less the idea, I need to buy a car, get a job, work nine to five and go to the Mall.
I still believe marriage between man and women is great.
I have been considering or planning my escape again, how to distance myself from this world I despise. How to avoid the people in the word who are too busy, now I have learned, I also have to avoid tourist. They are exporting a nasty culture to every what used to be paradise on the planet. Travel has changed completely in the last 10 years, it is not the same.
Truly the only solution is to put my ear on the railway track, listen hard so the wayfinding signs. Try to listen to the quiet whispers of what is left of true backpackers, mixed in with what is now tourist walking around with backpacks. Find the gossip, the noise, the small truths where to find the places yet not conquered by the cell-phone culture.
In a way a new traveler of the planet has to become an explorer, a seeker of where to go, and tell each other how to escape. The true paradises on the planet are cheap, and hidden behind the noise made by drones called tourist.
I am not joking, I am in one of them epiphany days of life, where I can feeling myself getting up walking out the door. I Hobo works to travel, and how to not become the slave to the work is the escape.
