Australia's Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump has run more than three years (am I correct) and this real life Forrest Gump of OZ has walked for 30 years except that he does not own anything like Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.

John Cadoret has lived his life on the road since quitting his only job. At first, it was just a three month holiday to get out of the routine. Eventually, he liked what he was doing and never stops. He walked from Victoria to Queensland and back again. For 20 years he hadn't contacted his family but after being reunited again, promised that he would reach them from time to time.

He has no tax file number, no social security number, no Medicare number, no bank, just his own boss. He never worked a single day for 30 years and never claimed a cent from welfare. He just lived off what he can find in the street. He sleeps where ever he is when the sun comes down, did a lot of reading.. and thinking (maybe). He walks approximately 20km a day.
