Eff This

How often do you get sick of your daily routine? I'm pretty easy to please and my work schedule is nuts, so I don't get sick of mine very often but I imagine your run of the mill banker or office worker often sits in their cubical and wants to get up, hop in the car, drive to the airport and go somewhere far, far away on a regular basis.


Enter Matt Pedigo and Drew Hunt. Matt grew up in rural Kentucky, was a Marine and eventually ended up shooting tape in Reno and Knoxville before Covering the Carolinas for WSOC. Drew hails from Savannah and is an enormous UGA and Panthers fan who shot news in his hometown before making his way to WSOC a few years ago. Oh yeah, Drew also was a professional wrestler who has more than one belt. Two great dudes who are good enough friends they decided to rid themselves of local television news and skip town.

Leaving Charlotte wasn't quite far enough. Leaving North Carolina wasn't far enough. These two bought a one way ticket to Ireland. Next Sunday they'll land in Dublin, spend a couple of days sampling the locals and the local beverages before they start walking. They'll probably hitch a ride here and there, but for the most part, they'll lug big assed backpacks around the country for a while, then make their way through various other parts of Europe relying on their friendship and the kindness of strangers for survival.

Matt just got back from shooting a documentary in The Republic of Congo and Drew sold his condo and truck so they have nothing American to worry about while they're over there.

When I see people I know doing stuff like this, I always wonder if I could do it. I'm not sure I could, even when I was single. Let's be honest. It takes enormous balls to say, "Eff this, let's go backpacking!" That's exactly what Matt and Drew are doing. I'm impressed and happy for them. It's always nice to see folks who used to do what I used to do for a living do something really cool on their own accord. They'll have a freakin' blast. Many of their friends, colleagues and coworkers gathered at The Gin Mill Wednesday for a final pint and goodbye before they head east. Neither one of them looked nervous, just really freakin' excited.

Oh, and they'll be blogging along the way, too.

Hi !.
You may , perhaps very interested to know how one can reach 2000 per day of income .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may start to get income with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you thought of all the time
The company represents an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

Its head office is in Panama with affiliates around the world.
Do you want to become really rich in short time?
That`s your choice That`s what you desire!

I feel good, I started to get income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to select a correct partner utilizes your money in a right way - that`s the AimTrust!.
I take now up to 2G every day, and my first investment was 500 dollars only!
It`s easy to get involved , just click this link http://ybylavorot.100freemb.com/hihyky.html
and lucky you`re! Let`s take our chance together to feel the smell of real money

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

у меня- женатый любитель. время проводим с ним замечательно- никаких разводов для тему- бросай жену и живи со мной и т.п.Хорошо обоим и срасговориться тогда в одно из свиданий, он мне сообщил который хочет второго ребенка! предложила ему активно этим предбрать с женой! вот мне интересно- меня тупо послали для ...? или, как он объяснил, он со мной поделился своими умозаключениями и лланами для будущую жизнь...вот какова мужская логика? с одной стороны говорит, который он не собирается со мной кончатьотношения, с другой- разве сам не понимает, который я с ним после таких заявок случаться не буду!!!|вот, моя любимая женщина (но я не вместе, простой я её люблю, а она пока меня как друга) удалилась из контакта, я хочу чтоб она вернулась обратно, я просил несколько немного чтоб она не удалялась (причинность там всё действительно мне удобно с ней общаться) но она сказала Так надо......вот я и думаю извещать не большую надпись для асфальте: ВЕРНИСЬ В КОНТАКТ! который скажите?))|МЧ которого я люблю не ест сладкого...а я ем...да причём с наслаждением=)С Этим МЧ дурно знакома,но уже знаю в случае в случае если диалог дойдёт до возлюбленных пристрастей в еде-скажу к сладкому буквально равнодушна.Как считаете это верно?Или это всё чепуха.И пожалуйста онравезуйте людей коие недолюбливают сладкое-мне интересно...может то-то с такими знаком.Я лично одну даму такую знаю....она гипер ативная!!!!Любимый МЧ также супербл-активен в жизни.|В моей деревне работать негде. А ещё планирую вновь начал учиться. И вот пытаюсь в данный момент сыскать работу в Сургуте. Снимаем с мамой комнату за 8 тыс. У нас по закону, вообще-то, можно работать без регистрации (прописка у меня, естественно, дома). А вот жить невозможно! Что за расхождения? Слава Богу, мама работает уже 5 лет. А вот мне на одной работе сказали, что не имеют все шансы брать без регистрации, т. к. имеют все шансы возникнуть трудности с зарплатой. Ясно, что работодателю просто не хочется задач с законом. Но я же не могу купить квартиру! (никогда, наверно, не смогу). Продавать мне фактически нечего. (наша квартира стоит большее 5 тысяч).
