Life is Good: This is a motto or phrase that has been repeated continually by Andy Graham from the first newsletter written over 10 years ago, to the present day use in the header of HoboTraveler.com. This phrase "Life is Good," is stated with the intention of being a command, a request, and an order for the reader to know and accept that life is good.

Lost the plot, or Losing the plot: to become crazy. A traveler leaves their trusted friends, family, and colleges and must depend on their own opinions. Opinions are filtered and tested by friends in our lives, they will say, that idea is crazy, or that idea is good, when traveling these filters are removed. In the absence of friends to help us make good decisions, some travelers "lose the plot," and start making irrational and sometimes socially unacceptable decisions, we call this losing the plot. Sometimes they go native, becoming the same as the people they are visiting.
