By Land and Sea: Circling The Globe By Motorcycle

BLaS%20Batch%204%20 %206
Check out this very cool site which is the home page for Beau Gunderson, a man who has set out to circle the globe on the back of his trusty BMW F 650 GS motorcycle. He intends to visit “the majority of the countries on Earth” on his journey, and he’s doing it all for charity no less.

The front page of the site is more or less the blog of the journey, complete with some really great photos. But you’ll also find a map of Beau’s progress and his expected path, a list of his gear, and a wiki as well. At this point the wiki is mostly empty, but I can imagine how it’ll fill up as the journey progresses.

Click on the “Charity” link and you’ll find out more about why Beau has undertaken his journey. He’s hoping to raise funds and awareness for various charities, like the Alzheimer’s Association, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, and RAINN.

This looks like a great adventure and one that should be fun to follow. The charities are very deserving too. Good luck Beau! Enjoy the journey.

  1. Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is omnipresent in this day and age, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

    I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside… I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
