Things I love, from around the internet.

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” –Buddah (Allegedly)

The Future for Investors by Jeremy Siegel

This is one of my favorite investing books of all time. I will add more about this later.

Walden on Wheels

Fight Club

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

I don’t totally agree with everything in this book any more, but it was one of the first personal finance books I ever read- recommended and loaned to be by one of my best friends in University.

Vagabonding, by Rolf Potts

I cannot recommend this one enough. It is written as a general guide to long term budget travelers, but everything in this book is directly applicable to Financial Independence and generally mindful living.

The Intelligent Investor

The Millionaire Next Door

This book is excellent, and highly recommended!

The Wealthy Barber

The Richest Man In Babylon

Margin of Safety by Seth Klarman

This is a fantastic book on Value Investing. Author Seth Klarman is one of the most legendary Value Investors alive today, and is often compared to Warren Buffett. His book is long out of print, and basically only exists in two forms- used copies, to be had on eBay and Amazon for literally thousands of dollars, and free PDF copies on the internet.

Wanderer by Sterling Hayden


One of the best, longest running travel and adventure blogs, and my favorite website on the whole internet for at least the last 10 years or so. This family has had a profound influence on me and my life. Thank you Pat and Ali.

Pat has written several books which I highly recommend, you can find them on Amazon, or his website. Right now Pat’s book Bumfuzzle: Just out looking for Pirates is available for free on Amazon.

Compassing: A Vanlife Adventure Documentary (23 minutes)


Temporary Story Travel Documentary  (39 minutes)

A Map for Saturday: A Documentary about backpacking

Atom Voyages: 

“Stories from over 20 years and two voyages around the world seeking adventure aboard our 28-foot Pearson Triton sailboat, Atom.” This is a very inspirational website, with fantastic content, about minimalist voyaging on small sailboats. James also wrote a great book, Across Islands and Oceans, which is available both free online and through Amazon, which I highly recommend.

Barna Tanko

I met Barna in Honduras while exploring the Pan American Highway. He is touring with his wife and faithul dog Blaze in his awesome homemade Sprinter Van. He is a professional travel photographer and has a great guide to freelance stock photography, his site is definitely worth checking out.

Joshua Kennon

Joshua’s website is one of the best sources of information I have ever found.
