Episode Summary

Once there, he discovered an untapped desired to keep exploring from the seat of an overlanding vehicle which kicked off a series of epic journeys from Alaska to Patagonia which he detailed in his book, “The Road Chose Me.” Dan Grec calls in from Zambia as he is working his way AROUND Africa. Yes, I said around. Not across. This journey so far has been almost 37k miles in his trusty off-road Jeep and he’s got many more 10s of thousands to go. Truly epic.

Dan's challenge for us this week is to start thinking about if you were the master of your own time, what would I be doing this week? And if you aren’t doing that, then why aren’t you? What’s in your way?
