Where am I?

Created this blog to document my travels, experiences & thoughts thru Central & South America but hell plan to blog my travels to where ever. Goofy harmless Free Spirit hoping to spend most of my time with locals & enjoy the world! So hang on as I travel, drink cervezas, raise a little hell, maybe piss off a few people & hopefully not give Canadians a bad reputation! Of course don't do these things on purpose but while having a good time well "Shit Happens"!

Was searching for some interesting rewarding thing to do with my life (Not just making money at a job) which led to a couple of things that hope to do in 2012 !!!

Cuz It’s so F*ckin Awesome to be Alive!

Just thankful have Health, Happiness, loving Family & Friends plus the Ability to Travel! So love to give back something by helping people who aren’t as fortunate or need a helping hand! Yeah so don’t work that much as don’t need a lot of Money as shit either Spend it foolishly, Piss it Away. Give it Away or Lose it! Which is why only Work a bit & Volunteer!

Just returned from a trip in Jan 2012 & for the first time was at loose ends with what to do! Didn’t feel like fit in society anymore (which of course I don't)! So wasn’t sure & still not sure what want to do with my life (cuz will probably never grow up LOL) as don’t want to work just for materialistic gains! Hell meet too many peep who only care about themselves, trying to impress others with money & appearance who are flaky as hell! Enjoy meeting others who also love Experiences, Adventure, Giving to Others & Living Life to the Max! 

Wow then a couple things happened which got me thinking about what I’ve been & enjoy doing!!

Read a book “The Razor’s Edge"   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Razor%27s_Edge The book inspired & got me thinking about the Reason/Meaning of our Lives! So like the guy in the book may head to India (as kinda like the place) for a little Spiritual Enlightenment to better understand life! Hell already think like the guy in the book except didn’t go thru a war but can understand a bit as my son just returned from Afghanistan a bit messed up! 

Came across a guy who survived Cancer who is trying to fund raise for Cancer Research & Awareness by cycling across the US in the fall 2012! http://www.thirty4three.com/index.html  & on FB https://www.facebook.com/Thirty4Three . He was looking for someone to drive a RV support vehicle for him as he's gotten an Aussie chick to help cook the meals! So offered my services as this sounded like an awesome volunteering gig!

So may head to India this spring 2012 to check out an Ashram  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashram  even if not big into yoga or mediation! Also not big into religion but been reading this about Buddhism  http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/5minbud.htm Then after may head to Russia to do the Trans Siberian Railway when it warms up a bit. Had hoped to try & do the Trans Siberian Railway in the fall as a couple of former traveler friends are planning to do it at that time.

Wanna return to Vancouver for the summer & do Burning Man (in Nevada) at the end of Aug. Then  could hang around that area & meet up with Rudy & Samantha in California after Burning Man to start our trip across the US! Once we get to the end of our journey in Florida may hitch, ride share or bus & couch surf my way north along the eastern seaboard back to Canada! But since winter would be starting well may decide to head to a Caribbean island to spend a few months in warm weather!

In the meantime will work & volunteer part time! A buddy has asked me to help him do some work with him! Also already have a commitment to volunteer at a Salsa Festival in a couple weeks. But hell who knows as don’t make many detail plans as things change & shit happens! However I do honor commitments so will definitely be there to help Rudy in his goal of cycling across the US!

My view on life I wrote in my CS Profile that gave up the real world to travel! A chick met traveling posted a FB link to this article written by a guy who also met traveling!
http://matadornetwork.com/notebook/how-to-quit-your-job-and-travel-the-world/ Read this article to hopefully put to rest any apprehensions u may have (when things aren't going so good) about u'r decision to say screw everything to go traveling! Bcuz u'r one of the maybe 10% who had the balls to go for it!!!

Life is what u make of it so shit not going to just sit around thinking about it!!!
