Resources, FAQ's, Kick-Ass Gear and Products
So, since I made up my mind to go on this crazy adventure, a lot of people have asked me how on EARTH I am able to do this! Most of the questions I get are fairly similar, so I thought I would start a resources page to answer them. If you are new to the site, this is a great place to start!
Additionally, this page can be used as a resource for anyone wanting to make their own long term journey! The information below comprises of actual products, webpages, and information that I HAVE ACTUALLY USED and find helpful. I hope it is helpful for you too!
