Wow!

You need to reduce some of those totals a little bit. My waisted time is no where near $75 per hour. I guess my time was a bargain.

Congratulations Mark!! It's been a great ride. Thanks for all the hard work keeping this thread going.

Still getting settled a bit, but this struck me as a funny way to look at my thread. 2014 should see productivity around the world improve



Too Funny!!... I look at it a bit differently!


I work in the Operating Room, so no surfing the net for me at work... your thread is my way of relaxing at home after a stressful day!!

Since reading your thread for a couple of years has been my way of chilling out, calming down and dreaming the dream after work. It has been balm on my mental stress and may have saved me LOTS of money on psychotherapy visits at $300 per hour! Therefor: your thread is a bargain!!



(and good therapy!)

Welcome home Mark! Saying thanks does not seem adequate enough for allowing us to follow along with the journey. The openness and joy that you bring to your life and experiences are just a reminder about how the world works if you approach it right.
I wish you the best for you and your family this holiday season and the best for the new year.
Looking forward to finding out on the TAT in the future!

Well done Mark. Truly epic.
Glad I could play a small part in this historic adv.
Great to meet you and if you ever get back to Oz let us all know.
As discussed we are halfway thru our little family 7000km adv now (Perth to Cairns). Only wish it was with two wheels instead of four.
Good luck with whatever the future holds.
Roger

Thanks for the R&R

Just finished the India RR, enjoyed it very much. The pictures and your interface with the country and people was epic. Now I have much more to get caught up.
Thanks for sharing

Time wasted

Wow. If I made $75.00 an hour I would have joined you for a couple of months in New Zealand.
Linda and I were very happy to meet you. Thank you for spending the time to post your adventure.

I'm sure the $75 is an average number. For instance I usually make more than that...

To be fair my office expenses are insane, I'd love to get everything I collect, but only receive a small percentage...

Love that others are still finding this RR and enjoying the journey! Really great!
