Yep. Central Siberia: the dick pic of the world.

Long Pubski posts are my kind of writing. You write pretty good, by the way; I appreciate your style.

    Three weeks of labourious sanding, filling, dusting and painting

They say in Russia that a man has to do three things in life: plant a tree, build a house and raise a son. Sounds like you're on your way to a third of the plan. Good on you!

Longest barefoot walk sounds like a great achievement to be remembered for. Give me a shout-out when you post about it: it's something I want to read about.

    Still very much wondering what on earth I'm going to do next. The thought of remaining in this town for too much longer fills me with dread. I feel like I kind of need to go off and do the whole "travel" thing before I get too old.

Then do it. Travel around for a while. If it's something you know you want and there's nothing holding you from it, then there's no reason not to do it. As for financing the journey: set up a business you can operate from anywhere with an Internet connection; if I recall correctly, this is what elizabeth did.

I kind of lucked out with my beard oil project when Urban Outfitters bought some bottles, setting up an online business that makes enough money to travel is actually not that easy. It's my goal for this year tho. The youtubing/travel vlogging is not really bringing in any money yet, but I'm just getting to the level I can score free media passes to some events. Plus, word is getting around that I know my way around filming/editing so I mights get a couple freelance gigs in the meantime. It's a long game, but I think I can make it happen if I stick with it. Just gotta figure out the cashflow in the meantime :)

Wow. You're getting places! Glad to hear things are turning out so well for you. Free media passes sounds like an awesome level of fame for someone not born into nobility or new money. Keep up the good work!

Ah, cool! It's nice to see another Hubski user on the right side of the Atlantic. Although, come to think of it, you're probably closer to the Pacific!

Hold on, does a hedge count? A couple of weeks ago I went down to visit my friend way out in the sticks, and helped her mother out in the garden. She had me plant a few striplings which hopefully will take, and eventually make a hedge. I was delighted when she told me she'd call it Fál Éamain, which mean's 'Eamonn's Hedge'. So maybe I only need to raise a son? Piece of cake.

    Then do it. Travel around for a while. If it's something you know you want and there's nothing holding you from it, then there's no reason not to do it.

In a lot of ways this is an excellent time for travel; I have no SO, no proper work situation, no mortgage, nothing really holding me to where I am. But I'm pretty scared, and that's sort of holding me in check. As for an online business, I'd have literally no idea what to do.

But never say never! We'll see. I am not staying in Mayo forever!

Only if you can climb it and not fall. :)

Check out this guy. He's fine! He's telling ya.

If you do decide to travel some time soon, feel free to visit Western Siberia. We can get a drink and I can show you around.
