Hey Olbert, can I ask how much you budgeted for 9 months?

Budgeted? Im not very good at budgeting.

The first thing I did to pay for this trip was get an older brother who is a mining engineer who is about to go on a massive world trip who is in need of a partner to come along. I was a bit iffy about coming, espeically cos of the money. He offered to pay for campervan lease in both North America and Europe and give me an interest free loan in order to induce me to come.

Once that part was sorted, I got about 15g of my own money - 4g already gone on flights and insurance. My budget consists of me trying not to spend too much, so that I dont have to take up the offer of a loan.

To be truthful I havent really worried about it, the loan is there if I need it.

Well, good for you! Now, you'd probably better wash those gruds out before your mum picks them up...............and maybe try to meet a girl?

No way. Real fun comes from falling off one move for days on end until you get injured and have to take a year off and then going back and sending. I have found one route I want to spend more time on. Cobwebs ! Fun as!

But also thirty schmerty if I want to do something long I'll just hit up the hollow mountain bat cave.

Have been to Joshua Tree, Red Rocks, Indian Creek, the Gunks and am currently at Red River Gorge. It's currently raining and am sitting in the warm basement of Miguels. I have more than 8 months of this to go.

I feel this is the definition of stoked.

We both had maps and info that niether of us took.

We were at the mercy of being droped off in NANGAR as niether of us has a license and no vehicle.

We were like Charlton Heston walking along the beach in Planet of the Apes trying to figure out where we were.

We walked to a high point and saw the statue of Liberty in the distance.

The ground was hard, rocky and steep and covered in flesh stripping ants. Then we sat covered and circled by DEET on our packs. It eventually got dark and the noises started. We carved shallow flat graves in the hill side for somewhere to sleep, lit a fire, drank beer, goon, dropped a horse pill and were eventually rescued.

I forgot to mention the spiders.
