Anonymous said: Why did you cancel your Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is all-or-nothing funding, meaning that if the goal is not met, then no funding is awarded; more importantly, no backers are charged.
With only a week left to go and at 18%, I realized that it was unlikely to reach my goal, so I cancelled it and started an IndieGoGo Campaign instead.
With IndieGoGo’s flexible funding system, funding is awarded even if the goal is not met, which in this case, means that the backers will still have the opportunity to get their prizes (and I’ll still be able to receive a portion of the funding!)
I am using my own “life’s savings” to go on this adventure, but the IndieGoGo will allow me to bring danielbrucelee along, my adventure partner, manager, talent, assistant photographer, assistant producer, etc. Basically… a trip like this is difficult to undertake alone!
And besides, you guys don’t want to see a million selfies of me from around the world!

Add me on Snapchat.
I just completed my exit interview at work.
Time to adventure!
Have you checked out my Kickstarter yet?
You can be a part of the journey too!

Anonymous said: Hello. In three years I will be done with school and I will do travel and work for a year after I graduate. Do you think that is a good start for adventuring? Since I was a little kid I have been dreaming from getting out of Germany and seeing the world and I totally agree with you when you say that one just has to leave and go fulfill their dreams but I am so afraid of failing while doing so. I especially fear what comes after that year of being away. Do you fear such things sometimes, too?

gingerlovee said: Have you ever heard of the Route of Santiago de Compostela (Way of St. James)? It's something I'd like to do but keep making excuses about it not working out. But I do appreciate your blog because you're taking it upon yourself to do what you aspire to, and not waiting for some kind of permission. We need more people like that. Thanks!
cravetheart said: What's in your mind the best exercise to prepare yourself for a life centered around hiking and the outdoors life such as the one you're leading now (which is truly inspiring to me)? Do you lift weights at the gym or simply just keep on hiking?
The best training for hiking is hiking!
I detest the gym; I don’t lift weights. If anything, I’ll do pushups and pullups in my own home to stay fit, and I just hike, a lot.
Took Finch on her first camping trip for my birthday this weekend.
If everyone who liked or reblogged my cat-camping photos donated $1, my Kickstarter could be funded twice!
Join me and together we’ll Explore the Unimaginable (click the link!)
I just quit my job to follow my dreams.
In a month, I’m going to embark on the adventure of a lifetime; I’d like you to be a part of it.
We’re going to explore ice caves in Iceland. Climb volcanoes. Trek across glaciers. And chase the Northern Lights.
We’re going to trek through the Himalaya, sleeping in the shadow of giants — while experiencing the humble culture of Nepal.
We’re going to explore caves in Thailand. Waterfalls in Laos. Ride quads in Cambodia.
Join me — and together, we’ll Explore the Unimaginable.
Twelve days until I embark on this epic journey. Please check out my Kickstarter below to see how you can be a part of it!
