There is a lot of turmoil in the world. Many things have changed. What used to work, doesn’t work so well any more. It is a new world. I have spent many years, through trial and error, developing some interesting short cuts and simple personal systems. These discoveries have helped me to achieve a good measure of personal freedom, independence and adventure in my life. If you are interested, I would like to share a lot of this unique information with you here in this web site.

I have always loved adventure and being out in nature.

When I was in my 20’s, I longed to lead an adventurous lifestyle. However, I soon found myself newly married with a new baby on the way. I was also going to school full-time and had to work two different jobs in order to make ends meet.

Whenever I had a spare moment, I would head up into the nearby mountains for a hike and a mini-adventure. I explored caves, old mine shafts, and ghost towns. I took hang gliding lessons on Saturday mornings and prospected for gold once or twice a month.
Things were pretty good, but I still dreamed of achieving a much greater degree of freedom and adventure in my daily life.

I desperately searched for and experimented with many types of businesses in an attempt to create an auto-pilot income that would give me the necessary financial freedom I sought.

Most of my attempted business ventures failed miserably. A few of them were mildly successful, but there were no big winners. To make a very long story short, I slowly inched my way along over a number of years, slowly figuring out how to reach my goal. Things got better and better over those years and I finally got it right.

Once I got it right, life became pretty amazing. I was able to go out adventuring whenever I wanted. I regularly traveled to many different countries and went off in search of lost cities, gold deposits, buried treasure, answers to ancient mysteries and much more. I found a lot of very cool stuff in a lot of very beautiful places and was even able to add a little more gold to my collection each month.

Please take a look at my brief slide show below to see a just few of my favorite adventures around the Americas.

Today I live in Cuenca, Ecuador. I work on a number of different and interesting personal projects. Some of them have to do with lost cities and ancient mysteries. I still go out adventuring on a regular basis.

Since I receive many emails and personal visits from aspiring adventurers, prospectors and treasure hunters, I finally decided to assemble some of my best secrets and information and turn them into The Wealthy Adventurer’s University. The University offers lots of free courses and also inexpensive information packages. There is much that is still under development and I’ll be publishing regular updates in my free weekly newsletter, The Wealthy Adventurer, as the weeks and months roll by.
