New York lecture by serial adventurer
Anyways, back to this guy, Frederick Selby, who I've been talking to in the last couple weeks. He's done some ridiculous stuff, including trekking all over Mongolia, Nepal, Bhutan, Kilimanjaro, and the Alps. But here's the kicker: he works as a Wall Street banker by day. He told me his next trip will likely be northern Peru to explore some Mayan ruins or the south pole.
Most of his trips are for a group of his adventure friends. He just calls them up, everyone pools together the funds, and they find a local "fixer" who can help them with the logistics. A great role model for the rest of us.
