Remember in the movie Titanic when Rose’s mom sarcastically asked Jack if he found that nomadic and care free lifestyle appealing? Then remember Jack’s poignant and awesome response?

“I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.”

I think Jack’s response was one of the most relevant and powerful statements ever uttered in the history of movies, mainly because it’s an exact reflection of the way I’ve perceived and lived my life up to now. I truly love waking up every day to a world of new possibilities and endless adventure.

Basically, if it involves telemark skis, the mountains, a backpack, a passport, a road trip, a mountain bike, some ice climbing gear, a foreign language or a combination of all the above…you can definitely count me in.

  1. I’m looking for your blog posts on rigging out your Toyota. It was pretty inspiring, but I wasn’t yet at a point I could take the time.

    Now I’m looking at raising the bed of mine, and sure would like to take a look at how you engineered that step.

    Thanks, Barry. Keep writing. Keep smiling. Keep moving.

    Michael.
