Four Deadly Travel Budget Sins

My budget paid to cell phone Companies is out of control I am Travel Budget Sinning. I have rewritten this opening paragraph five times trying to explain what is happening with my Cell Phone,, BlackBerry and USB Wireless Internet access cost. I must accept, these cost are unexplainable, because there is no way to understand what I am paying for, I just pay and hope I have enough money. I am angry and frustrated, this is not right, these telephone companies create traps, one false move and I have an explosion of expenses.

Writing about a subject forces me think clearly, my mind become annoyed with ambiguous sentences. Sometimes I have to just give up, and say,
"This is how I mismanage my Cell Phone,, BlackBerry and USB Wireless Internet access."

I give up; I cannot write clearly about this subject, it is not possible

NEW Ghana people can win 100 Dollars in Hobo Scavenger Hunt

Writing my Book as Stalled, Live in Paradise on 500 Dollars per Month
This cell phone business is helping me to understand why I am stalling and have not finished writing this book. It is 85 percent done, I can see the finish line, but there is a problem in paradise.

I do not want to write a book saying,
"You can live in Paradise on 500 dollars per month."
Then when you arrive, you pay, 2000-5000 per month.

It is a little difficult to stay at a 500 dollar per month budget, but 100 percent possible. However, I also know the four reasons why people may go over budget.

Four Deadly Travel Budget Sins

1. Beer, Wine and Alcohol cost.

2. Cell Phone,, BlackBerry and USB Wireless Internet access."

3. Paying for love, dating, gifts, paying expenses, etc.

4. Paying for tourist attractions, because we had to see it.

Preachers try to convince people they can stop sinning, and because the person gets a warm and fuzzy feeling, they give the preacher man money. It is obvious to me, that maybe 1 in 300 got what was promised from the Preacher, the other 299 need to get a refund because they are going to Hell.

Somehow the teacher, the Preacher still is paid, when the student fails, and fails, falls to temptation and sins again.

I want a better than 1 in 300 success rate.
By writing this book, I want 50 percent of the people to read the book to succeed, I do not want them to fail because of one of the four deadly travel budget sins.

I need to write some clear rules, something like:

1. No credit cards.
2. Go to the ATM machine two times per month.
3. Do not eat in restaurants.
4. Stop your ATT and Verizon bill before you leave, dump the BlackBerry.

The writing challenge is this, to make the rules simple, but 100 percent clear, then when a readers do not follow the directions, they know why they had problems. The fortunate thing is this, most people will be able to live on 1500 dollars per month, and that budge is simple, they will try for 500, and end up at 1500 and still feel satisfied.

Again, my challenge is to write simple rules, which control the four deadly sins of the travel budget.

Scavenger Hunt Opened to Locals from Ghana
I stopped and talked with a family that live behind the fish smokers, we talked about this, we talked about that, and one person asked,
"How do you make money?"
I said,
"I have a large travel site."
One man behind me asked,
"What is the web site?"

From experience, I know that only 1 in 100 people actually go and look at my site, they lose focus, forget, it just skips their brain. What used to save me is this; a web site address needed to be typed in perfect, there was no forgiveness. E-mail addresses are the same, you need to do it perfect, there is no reward given for being close. People are not perfect, therefore they seldom found the perfect path to my site.

Oops, go figure, is now rewarding people for being close.

The Ghana gentleman was exceptional, I told him, Hobo Traveler, I try to be helpful. I said Traveler, not Travel; it is Hobo Traveler DOT com. From 12 years, 11 months and 10 days of experience I know, if the person asking questions, does not write it down, I am still safe. When the pull out a piece of paper, then I know they are serious, this seldom happens.

Well, again, the Ghana man was exceptional, he found the page, he then found the Blog, and he read about the Scavenger hunt. When I returned to my new found well of Ghana friends, one of the women said,
"I am coming down to the Tarso Hotel on the 22nd to win my 100 Dollars."

Ooops, I thought I was clear, but I was not, it is my fault, the Scavenger hunt was only going to open to foreigners with a passport in hand. So now, the Scavenger hunt is open to all people from all countries, sorry, I did not mean to confuse.

I want the Scavenger Hunt Rules Easy
You find the damn thing; you get 100 dollars, only one diehard proviso.
"You must record a video and put on"

This is the only way I can see with my own eyes that the person truly found what I am hiding in the Tarso Hotel here in Ho, Ghana, by me watching of the person with the object in question, there is no way to fake a video.

Ok, again, if you know anybody in Ghana who wants to win 100 US Dollars, you can now tell them to read my Blog, and one day unexpectedly, I will announce.
"The Scavenger Hunt is Open."
After opening day, one lucky person will walk around in the Tarso Hotel and find something worth 100 US Dollars.

I saw the man yesterday, he said, I am coming down on the 22 to win my prize. I said,
"Ok, but it is not going to be that easy, and you need to read my Blog daily to know he exact date this Hobo Scavenger Hunt starts."
Read Daily Please

If a Scavenger hunt was easy, then it would not be fun, it is the hunt, the challenge that makes life interesting.

Please, I beg you, read this page closely if you want to win 100 U.S. Dollars:
