Everything costs money! Don’t I have a job? How do I have time for this? Or money?
The truth is, I didn’t really have what I needed to take on this journey. Which brings me to the next segment: All of my gratitude for the people who have helped me along the way.
A MILLION THANKS
There are so many people who have provided support and encouragement, there are far too many of you to list. I am truly rich in amazing friends and family. But not only that, I have received so much extra support to make this trip real!
Without you all, I wouldn’t have…
Mike Barosko, Garrett Moreau, Jimmy Wu, Barbara Gatch, Patrick & Odeliah Yeung
Jimmy Wu, Barbara Gatch, Melina Flender, Nathan & Allison Loudon, Lauren Howard, and a few who wish to remain anonymous
Russell York, Nissen Ward, Garrett Moreau
BONUS: Special thanks to Russell for lending me his GoPro!
Jonmarc Laine, Hannah Laine

I’m currently still on my journey and there are always unexpected costs — fixing gear, replacing gear, more food, having money for emergencies, and so on.
You can buy me a meal or two through PayPal (click that link), and then keep on enjoying the posts, videos, and photos that come from the trip.
Thank you for listening to my story and supporting me with your interest!
