Good Morning Wealthy Adventurer!
Another week has just passed. It doesn’t even seem possible. The older I get, the more I cannot even believe how fast time flies.
Have you ever had a life threatening experience that made you stop and think how precious each minute is to be alive? How often do stop to consider that time is actually our greatest resource in life, even more important than money?
As each day passes, it becomes more and more important to make sure that we are actively pursuing our highest priority goals. Every day, I try to consciously stop and measure my progress to make sure that I am not diverting my focus from what is most important to me. It is far too easy to get caught up in daily, urgent matters that distract us from where we really want to be going.
Every now and then, something happens that helps us to stand up and take notice. Once in a while we get a wake up call. A few decades ago, I had a major wake up call. I was in a plane crash in the Amazon jungle. It was a life-changing experience. I’ll never forget it...
MAYDAY! We're Crashing
in the Amazon Jungle!
We desperately searched for a town, a road or even a clearing, anywhere that we could land the twin engine Cessna Golden Eagle that was now completely out of fuel. We were hopelessly lost over a remote stretch of thick green Amazon forest that spread endlessly in all directions. The Brazilian navigator, Gilberto, that we had employed in Boa Vista, had assured us of his experience and ability to get us safely over this section of jungle. Now sat with a map on his lap and a look of horror on his face.To continue reading this entry, please click here...

Good Morning My Fellow Adventurers!
I hope you are already well in to a great week. I hope that progress with your plans and goals is moving along positively, a little further each day.
I received an email from a good friend yesterday. He lives in California. He is growing increasingly frustrated with how conditions are evolving economically and politically, both in the country and also in the world. He gets most of his news through the Alternative Media. In other words, he is reading about 80% of the truth, as opposed to the traditional media which is about 80% deception.
While I do not intend for my messages to you to get all
political, I do feel the need to mention that very big changes will be occurring
soon in our world, perhaps even this year. This is now a mathematical
certainty. I believe it would be in our best interest to pay close attention to
1. Establish a portable income (both digital & physical),
2. Reduce our monthly budget dramatically (realize a monthly surplus),
3. Acquire the physical possession of precious metals (silver is my favorite),
4. Get independent with our personal food and water supply,
5. Secure a safe and independent living space,
Here, at The Wealthy Adventurer, I prefer to put a strong and positive emphasis on acquiring gold & silver, establishing a portable income and being prepared with the basics of life. I will have much more to say in coming weeks on each of these topics.
Speaking of finding gold, please allow me to continue and finish the story I began last week...

Greetings from the Windy Mountain.
We have had a nice mix of wind, sun and rain lately. The wind and sun help to keep our battery bank well-charged, and the rain provides plenty of water for my weekly shower. :-)
I apologize for missing my blog entry last week. Sometimes, life on the mountain throws out some unexpected challenges. In addition, urgent trips to the dentist and misbehaving parasites (internal) add their time requirements to the mix.
I am back this week, however briefly, to at least keep in touch with you and to let you know that I am still alive and kicking. All of our projects and plans are still intact. We are still progressing a little more each day.
I hope you are well and progressing with your life’s plans and goals. Have you been out prospecting for gold lately, in any of its various forms? Have you had a chance to go hiking or exploring recently? Have you made any new discoveries, either on the internet, in a book or out in the field?
As I have been thinking a lot lately about times in my life when I have made extremely exciting discoveries, I recall one experience in particular this morning. I was living and working as a full-time gold prospector in the very remote, northern region of Mato Grosso, Brazil. This was back in the late 1970’s and I was in my naive mid 20’s. Our small camp was very rustic and only accessible by a single-engine airplane. We were far away from the nearest outpost town.

I was going to publish an entirely different blog today. I have been working on it for a few days now. However, that idea changed instantly due to an email I received early this morning when I arose. One of the things I love about managing our Wealthy Adventurer’s Club is that I get to be in touch with amazing and interesting people. So many of you have important stories to share with us.
The following story is a most incredible example of a shared, personal story!

A true story...
There once was an aspiring Wealthy Adventurer. At a fairly young age he became obsessed with the search for gold. It all started on that memorable day in November when he first spotted an alluring, little sparkle of gold in his pan at Sutter’s Mill. As a result, his life would eventually take a completely unexpected direction, much to the chagrin of family and friends.
