The urge to adventure has been with me for as long as I can remember...that's potentially why I came to earth to begin with...

Life On My Terms
The freedom to do what you really want feels very nice,
but it comes at a price...
Don't let fear stop you!
Instead use your fear to fuel you with passion toward your purpose!
LET YOUR FEARS BE YOUR FUEL
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm23:4
I believe in God
but NOT in his Ground-Personnel !
I do not need a church, nature is mine !
I'm getting old but I am forever young at heart ...
You can tell by looking at me that I've got more miles behind me than I've got in front of me.
When you reach that point, if you've got some good years left, you want to make sure that you use them wisely.
We are always the same age inside. Know that you are the perfect age.
Each year is special and precious, you can only live it once.
Do not regret growing older, it's a privilege denied to many...
That was my 9th Yukon River Expedition so far !
1998 - 1999 - 2000 - 2002 - 2004 - 2005 - 2006 - 2011 - 2013
I have spent about 26,000 km in a boat on the Yukon River and some 100,000 km in boats in general ...
7 times the Yukon River in its full length and
2 times to the half is NOT enough for me yet ...
Only the one who walks his own way
can't be overtaken
I try to be as independent and self-sufficient as possible. Therefore, I live in a small space with as little as possible.
Don’t Get Stuck on the Hedonic Treadmill
For me, all people are equal !
I am very much in favor of a good coexistence of all peoples, races and cultures on our planet.
I don't judge people how they live, what kind of car they drive, how they dress or where and how they live. Only people with small minds do such a thing!
I am more interested in how they deal with other people.
If and how they overcome difficulties and how they take on challenges and what skills I can learn from them and they can learn from me!
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success on an expedition.
I am an adventurer
An Adventure is a tremendously powerful and positive experience that enriches the lives of those it touches. The more people embark on an adventure and exploration, the better for our world. They never come back as the same person, it will change them forever.....
The elements that make up my perfect adventure are:
It is unique
It has no guarantee of success
It is hugely challenging, pushing me far out of my comfort zone
It involves real risk which requires complete commitment to manage
It takes courage to live as your authentic self.
Some people, even family members, may not want to accept the real you. But if you don’t live that way, you become less of yourself and limit what you can do.
Walking to the beat of your own drum allows you to use all your gifts and be there for others. Every choice you make contains the choice to be authentic. When you choose to live as who you really are, you become your best self.

I'm "Single" by choice.
It is going to take one hell of a Woman to change that !
And I'm pretty sure that I won't find her here ...
Those who would give up Liberty, to get temporary Security,
deserve neither Liberty nor Security
