The fear of looking back years from now and regretting not following through on the aspirations of my youth should no longer be a concern. The greatest challenge people face is pushing aside and overcoming personal fears in order to take on the extraordinary and accomplish more than they believed they ever could. It is in this vein of achievement to which I am just finding my courage and will test every element of myself in order to fully appreciate the world around me.

The moment has arrived, I will shed away from the comforts of home, family and friends and head for the unknown to pursue a moment without regret. I will become another noble drifter of the world walking everyday towards infinity and for eternity - which I hope will free me to live more fully in the moment.

On November 16, 2008 my journey will begin. I invite you to travel with me virtually as I will be posting pictures, stories, videos, facts and other travel details about my trip as they unfold. So please frequently check this site for new and updated information and to post your thoughts and questions. While I am on this journey, it is an opportunity for us to all grow and learn from one another.
