    "Hit The Road" Hobo Symbol Tattoo I got in Fiji

    I completely agree with you. To say the truth I don't believe the symbols were widely used at all. Maybe on a smaller scale for marking catchout spots etc I just like the concept behind them

    "Hit The Road" Hobo Symbol Tattoo I got in Fiji

    I got it in the hopes those in the know would see the humour in it. It should stop people approaching my antisocial ass.

    Theres none along the Beachfront, just pohutukawa trees. I do spy a couple Nikaus on the hill but they are amongst houses so cant get a good photo of those. There doesn't seem to be any others around. Where I plan on getting tomorrow there's heaps so I'll snap a couple photos when I see some!

I would feel anxious leaving my vehicle for a prolonged amount of time and out of eyesight. Getting rid of my vehicle removes any possibility that...
