Just about anyone wishes they could do this.

Most Bucs fans are aware that former Bucs center brawly Joe Hawley decided rather abruptly it seems to retire this winter once his NFL contract with the Bucs ran out. Hawley proceeded to customize a rig, adopt a mutt, sell or give away most of his possessions and just cruise the United States without a care in the world.

Hawley even started a blog to document his travels,

So many people are jumping on board, even the “Today Show” did a feature on Hawley. You can see the video below.

Hawley even discussed if his tricked out van is a chick magnet or not.

    Loved his style, his moxie. Old style O line guy covering his QB between the whistles. Wasn’t the greatest player, but was one of the best team mates the Bucs could ask for. Sorry to see him go.

    Love Joe Hawley, good dude and really genuine and subscribed to his YouTube channel. You can tell he is enjoying life for sure, he also dropped a ton of weight and still in shape. Nothing but best wishes for our old scappy center.

    “I saw this unemployed bum taking a leak on I4 off the lakeland exit behind my trailer park. I was looking at his van but he thought I was checking him out and had his dog chase me”

    I’m not so sure why everybody is nasty to Kobe.

    I get not agreeing with his takes but he seems to have engendered some real animosity. Is he guilty of anything other than some moronic takes? LOL

    Yeah I know…I’ve been guilty of those myself!
