Welcome. I don’t use this much blog anymore, but there is still some good content here from back in the day, and I still travel a lot. Now though I just share on my Facebook and Youtube channels and then share that content here.

On the road again

Here we are two days out from jumping back in the car and hitting the road again. It is a funny old life this one we lead. There is a strangeness to living in a place almost long enough to call it home, and then

All kinds of crazy

A lot of people think I am a little crazy for one reason or another, not crazy like I am going to chop you into little pieces and maybe have a taste crazy, just crazy like “He did whaaaaat now?” crazy. I don’t think myself crazy

Stop listening to your brain.

The miraculous thing about dreams

Making a change and allowing yourself to reach beyond an ordinary life opens up a miraculous world of entirely new possibilities which you could never imagine without taking that initial leap of faith. Although this miraculous-ness has made itself known in my life since the

Your money or your life?

It is a difficult balance to reach, and a strange one to even have to consider. How much should you work to be able to afford the life you want, and what kind of life do you want? Will an extra $10 000 a year

As many of you are aware, and I am sure an equal amount are not, we are no longer in Guatemala! I say that with a smile on my face because despite what I expected and hoped for from Guatemala, life jumped in the way

Training and first Paramotor flight video

As promised, here it is, video proof that I actually got in the air with nothing but a paramotor on my back, a wing above my head, and an extra layer of underpants! [vimeo 86800702 w=800 h=450] The training ended up being around 3 days

No Longer a Dream, I AM going to fly!

You may very well have seen my last post about wanting to follow a long-held dream and take to the skies like a bird (albeit a bird with one giant parachutey type wing and a motor on its back). Well after that post I started

What would eighty year old you do?

I had a thought this morning. I was in that state where your eyes are opening and closing every few minutes, where you know the day has started but you are not quite ready to join it, and my mind had started ticking over and

How the hell is 2014 going to compete?

Last night as the clock struck twelve and Sarah and I wished each other a Happy New Year, I was struck by a rather odd thought. Odd only because it is one I have never had before. “How the hell is 2014 going to compete

Lots of broken stuff

I haven’t written a post for awhile because I have been fixing lots of broken stuff, some of it biological and some of it technological. THE BODY After about two weeks of waiting for the hospital in Cancun to send my results through to Playa
