Hobo Goes Home for Thanksgiving
I have purchased a one-way ticket with Delta Airlines from Bangkok, Thailand to Indianapolis, Indiana for 1038 U.S. Dollars.

Ouch, double the price of two to three years ago.

I will fly into the USA on the 26th of November and fly out on with Taca.com to Guatemala on the 8th of December for 238 USD one-way.

I cannot be in the USA over 30 days per year or I have to pay Uncle Sam Taxes, if I stay out of the country 335 days, I can earn up to 80,000 USD and not pay taxes. In reality, I am only in country for about 20-25 days; I need to keep a few days open for an emergency need to return to the USA. I did hear that if I had residency in another country, I could actually be in the USA longer, this is just rumor and I do not know anyone who is actually utilizing residency in another country this way.

I will be in Guatemala, checking on Backpacks, thinking about building a Hostel and calling the USA on Skype.com because I am in the same time zone.

Around say the 15th of January I am hoping to head south to Peru to go look for los menos civilizados near Pucallpa. I am tempted to say uncontested tribes, however the reality is it the lesser contacted tribes. The locals call them,
“Ellos sin ropa.”

I need high water for river travel in Peru.
