No one said life on the road would be easy. Navigating the rails, mapping bus lines, and hitching rides. Dealing with hunger when you don't have a nickel to chew on. Picking up an odd job here and making a few bucks there. But that's why it's exciting. It's one hell of an adventure. It's a thrilling road to follow if you're up to the challenge. And this book's your back-pocket saving grace. As you flip to the next flop, you'll need to know how to get by in order to stay one step ahead. Realize: a hobo isn't some bum looking for a handout. You need to be ready to put in the effort. If you want to make your way in the Jungle and along your route, you need the know-how provided within. This is the textbook to your open-road education.
Josh Mack has worked as a painter, carpenter, advertising copywriter, and freelance writer. Over the years, he has crisscrossed the continental U.S. nine times and spent a year traveling through India and Nepal by foot, train, bus, motorcycle, and the occasional burro. When he isn't on the road, he lives in New York City.
