    Great storytelling mate. My adventuring has taken a bit of a different turn in the past 4 year (two children, promotion, blah, blah, blah…), but I continue to be inspired by your worldview and take on adventure!

    Keep it up!

    brave and inspiring.
    to travel and live at the whim of other people’s kindness is surely a great way to experience the best in humans, and can only change your own outlook for the better.

  7. Remember one of your early talks at Eye?

    I incurred a C5 spinal injury in 2012 when a deer knocked me off my bicycle. My adventure was forced as I cannot walk and can only just use my hands. It’s actually been quite good!

    Isn’t it fascinating how, no matter our desperate denials, the shining life we’ve worked for can dull with time? No matter the original fervor and fury of our passions, life has a way of adapting to a new norm, of fatiguing our once tenacious steel into a dangerous lethargy. Cheers to you for spotting the cracks and reinforcing them with the vigor of a new discomfort that rests outside of your newly modified norms. An inspiration. Thank you.

  11. All of this is amazing, from your stellar choice of The Muppet Show theme song to the vulnerability you shared with strangers. Thank you for redefining what adventure can be.

    Love this. Unfortunately, I now have the Muppet theme song stuck in my head.
