Our lives as adventurers take totally unforeseen turns. It's the nature of the adventures themselves to do so.

Ep. 518: Ways to Pay for Your Adventure - Mason Gravley

5/13/2019
More

It's a lot of grinding, budgeting, side gigs, sacrifice, asking, etc. The process of funding your adventure is honestly an entirely separate and equally difficult adventure. For me, the preparation and planning was half the excitement and joy of adventures, and often was a much longer experience than the...
