Seven Days Without Food

Friday, September 29th, 2006

In preparation for my extended period of travel, I’ve been doing everything to condition my body to the rigors and maladies of travel.

Conquering Fear

Monday, September 25th, 2006

One of my biggest fears about traveling the world for an extended period of time was that I would have to do it on my own. It’s wasn’t solitude or separation from my friends that made me nervous. I was more concerned about being lost in a foreign city with no idea of where to go or what to do.

This past weekend I came to realize how absurd that was. I was called for a job in Baltimore, MD (about 4 hours away from my home). I was set up with a nice hotel room, and had a great crew to work and socialize with. However, I decided to avoid those comforts brave the city on my own. [read on]

I will be giving anything I can’t sell to friends, or donating it to goodwill. The goal is to get enough money together to purchase a flight out the country, buy a pack and other gear, have enough left over to travel for about a year on a less than moderate budget, and put the rest in a CD waiting for return to a new life.

Sunset on the Pacific Ocean

My name is Adam. I have been living and traveling on this planet for twenty five years, yet haven’t seen nearly enough of it. So I have made the decision to sell almost everything I own and wander the earth for an indefinite period of time… six months, a year, perhaps for the rest of my days. [read on]
