Another very cool blog post Patrick!

I completely agree on rather experiencing/seeing places rather than having lots of stuff.

My dream is similar but slightly different...I want to 4x4 or "overland" through different parts of the world, to see nature where people rarely come.  :)

Very true Patrick. And you've just been spending money you've sweated and worked for - wait until you are spending proceeds from your investment - money that other people sweated for. Even better!  ;)

Thanks :)

I've had the overland dream before too. For a while I wanted a unimog camper, but the prices are insane and they drink diesel! I've since travelled in pretty much every country in central and eastern africa, and a couple in western africa, so that desire is gone. My camper dream has morphed into a boat so I can see new places now.

Yes, I have a feeling it will be way more satisfying knowing that I could just carry on endlessly while the minnions bring in the cash! Just a few more years I think...

I have seen those Unimogs, they are amazing! But yes, waaaay expensive. I would like to see Africa yes, but even more than that, I would love to see Alaska. I found a very cool youtube channel called ExpeditionOverland. Some of the views they found on their trip in Alaska looks epic!
