To them, I say, “THANK YOU.” That is all I need to want to do this a “little bit more.” Please keep telling me it is impossible! As my good friend from Texas, Jimmy Haugen always said, “One thing about doing the impossible, you have no competition.”
I have been warned traveling with no money will be very dangerous. I might even end up in jail! Well, that’s nothing new for me. Remember, I was put in jail in Belize for not having proper identification. It turned out that my five-days in jail was the best thing that ever happened to me. That was three years ago, and my life changed (for the better) since that painful experience. All the questions I ever had about life were answered!
I just got an email from a friend who said, “This trip ain’t going to happen.” He feels the world will be in total chaos when I leave on my new adventure. Well, my view is much more optimistic, than that! If the world comes to an end before my trip, I guess I won’t be going. Worrying about the future cause’s anxiety, and I don’t go their…anymore! However, I don’t see that happening, and I’m surly not going to worry about it! I can actually visualize seeing me take my first step and my last one.
I know I’m a recovering alcoholic! However, I am soon to become a recovering… “Walk-aholic”
Now there will be three groups involved, the “Normal People” group that will be making the whole 484-mile journey. They will be staying at hostels or hotels and enjoying some really authentic home cooking on the way. Plus see some of the world’s most beautiful sights.
Remember stress level zero is the goal. “ENJOY THE MOMENT” is our theme! Sorry, any 9 to 5 thoughts will not be allowed!
The second group will be people who can’t do the whole walk or cannot take that much time off work. They can join us on the way. I will have a map of where we should be every day. Facebook will have our daily update.
Even if there are those of you who want to join us the last 100 mile’s that is OK. We will call you the “Century Gang.” I have that last 100-mile route finished.
The final group will be called “The One Click Clan,” which will consist of those of you with sore feet, low energy or no money, or won’t even consider the trip. We need you also! You can follow our day by day excursion on F.B. I will try to send out a daily narrative with photos. That’s if I can find an internet cafe on the way, which should not be a problem.
I have found the perfect tent on eBay. It pops open in 10 seconds; it only weighs 6 pounds cool hey! Now I’m looking for a light-weight sleeping bag and an inflatable mattress and pillow. I am trying to keep my total carrying weight to 20 pounds or less.
Feel free to share this link on any website you can think of. I want the world to join us on this exciting journey.
Love and stuff…Jim
I am still getting the question, Aren’t you afraid of what might happen to make this trip with no money?” The answer is “YES.” I have the money to pay my way if I wanted to. However, I must tackle this fear of asking someone I don’t know for help. There must be a lesson for me in all this. I think it is… the true meaning of “HUMILITY?”
Next week, I hope to make a huge announcement on how the King of Thailand may be involved in our walk! J
