Use what you have.

Make it reliable.

Balance time and money, which is more accessible to you? Can you save or work on the road? Do you really need all that shit hanging off the back of the 4×4? Nope. So, take what you have, and explore. Then publish. And inspire!


The purpose of life is to live it, to taste it, to experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.

— Eleanor Roosevelt
