This is a great look into what is in my opinion a very interesting and meaningful life. He had his problems, no one denies that, but despite that he explored, loved to learn, shared positivity with others when he could, and lived off the beaten path. He had the right idea...make life an adventure, not for yourself, but so the lessons you learned while doing them could be shared with others. Sometimes he succeeded with this, sometimes he didn't. He was human, a regular guy, and did change the world in a positive way. It gives hope to "regular guys" everywhere. You don't have to be a prophet, a once a lifetime genius, or a supertalent. You just have to have the desire to adventure, learn, and share.
