When I was in the 5th grade I told all the girls in my class that I was going to be a pro football player for the San Francisco 49ers. I repeated that statement to the girls in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Sadly I never made the cut. The NFL scouts just weren’t interested in an undersized Mexican who fumbled the ball. Go figure.
I clearly decided at an early age that I was going to engage life by declaring my impossible, improbable, and seemingly unattainable goals as fact, out loud, to anyone who would listen, over and over again. I’m not sure why I did it, but over time I realized that shameless public declaration actually helped to manifest these goals. It doesn’t always work. Sometimes I just look like an idiot (note the NFL example above). Nevertheless I continued to declare far fetched goals louder and more frequently. DRIVE AROUND THE WORLD. When I say that to myself it seems like such a monstrous feat and it sounds kinda scary. So, I’ll just keep saying it to others.
Do we know how long it will take? Not really. Do we know the overland route? Nope. Can we afford it? Not sure. I can tell you that it is indeed possible. By using boats to cross oceans and rivers, you can literally drive around the entire planet, continent by continent. The journey includes North America to South America, Africa to Europe, across Russia into Asia, down through the South Pacific Islands, and across Australia.
