Man_Without_A_Hat: "Graham Hughes has used buses, boats, taxis, trains, and his own two feet - but never an airplane - to travel 160,000 miles in exactly 1,426 days, spending an average of less than $100 a week. "$100 a week.1426 days comes out to 203 weeks.$20,300So you're saying that for the price of a new car, you can travel the world for four farking years?What am I doing with my life?
Kevin72: Holy jumping tap-dancing Jesus Hussein Christ on a graham cracker! But he still doesn't say how he got into North Korea overland, just that it was as easy as going from Turkey to the Iraq without a visa.

You can't live on $100/week in the US or Canada. Even so, who has $20,000 to piss away in this global economy? That's double my life savings.That's the first thing I thought. You gotta be pretty damn wealthy to be able to afford to blow that kind of coin. He was obviously not working while he did it, so how did he pay his rent back home?The trick is to develop an income that's not tied to you being in any one place. I've thought a few times of getting a camper cover for my truck and taking my business on the road, but that's still too much like work. I'm trying to come up with a few things I can put out there and have fully automated so I only have to check in once or twice a week while revenue gets handled by an accountant.And hell, most accountants could automate things in their office so they didn't have to show up that often. If they had the personality to do so, you know. Anyhow, anyone know a reliable way to hang a 400 pound supporting bracket off a household brick wall consistently? I have a product idea that would require being able to teach someone with a tradesman level of education to mount something with safety and ease. Solid concrete and cinder block is easy, but finding a stud through a clay brick wall isn't that easy.
