    Default Exploring Elements

    Thought you guys might like to check out my new project: www.exploringelements.com. I'm going to be living full time out of my Sportsmobile starting next week and hope to leave on an RTW expedition within 2yrs. I'd love pointers on all of the above and sorting out my rig for the adventure.

    See you on the road- Bryon

    Will do Chris. Not planning to head that far east for awhile, but might be out that way this summer or early fall.
    The seals and bearings in the rear axel failed Friday, in the shop all day today before hitting the road "permanently". Crossing my fingers for a not so painful bill!

    Default Nice write up

    I loved your style in "my first adventure" write up. You have a nice gift and must be a great poker player!

    Good luck on your RTW planning, etc.

    Default I wish;)

    Thanks for the kind words. I enjoy poker, but have a long way before I can be considered good. Had some good luck on that trip for sure. Hopeing for some more good fortune in the future as I need to raise some funds.

    See you on the road,
    Bryon

    Bryon,


    Saw your van in the parking lot of Home Depot in Reno today.
    I wanted to come and say hey, but didn't know if you were up yet.
    Awesome write up by the way. If your heading to Lake Almanor stop by the Coffee Station.


    Safe Travels, Jeff

    Jeff, Just picking up some little items to sort out the van. Not sleeping there that time. Thanks for saying hi.
    Loren 85022, having fun on the road for sure. I like the SMB couch surf idea I'll give you a shout if I get down that way.
    Getting some good kayak training done in Reno, but bank account is suffering with poor poker performances and the big Van repairs over the past month. I'm actually thinking about the evil "j" word (job)!
