To set the stage for latecomers, my very personable, adventurous, now 22-year-old son Greg, he of dreadlocks and scruffy beard and thrift store clothes - now dubbed the Scruffman – embarked on a trip more or less around the world. He traveled on less than half a shoestring, hitchhiking, ride-sharing, couchsurfing, and camping his way around. He left home (San Francisco Bay area) on September 27, 2009, and returned on September 11, 2010, two weeks and two days short of a full year.
