A Life of Travel

Setting up for remote work and going to live and work in exciting (often tropical) locations is the best decision I have made. If you’re craving self-growth and an unconventional life of adventure, I urge you to escape!

I’m here to help others experience the same transformation I did through extensive world travel.



 Ethical Hacking

From a young age, I began taking things apart. Many a walkie-talkie set died beneath my screwdriver. Whether biological or technological, I want to know how everything in this fascinating world of ours works!

At age 17, I began as an Electronics Technician for LexMark International. My teenage years were blessed with solder fumes as I made ASIC changes to prototype circuit boards. My technical career eventually led me to the network security team at IBM Global Services.

Today, I maintain a homelab with hypervisors and many other toys. I even chase bug bounties from time to time.

About Me

I’m Greg Rodgers from Lexington, Kentucky.

After some time in the US Army and eight years working as a network security engineer for IBM, I knew that I needed more adventure in my life.

I took a break from the corporate world in 2005 and began a new life of vagabonding around the world as a travel writer and remote-work consultant.

Today, I write, edit, freelance, and help others to chase their adventure dreams. Click below to visit my long-running blog (since 2006):

A Few Sample Adventures

I have been trekking and climbing in the Himalayas alone. In 2016, I narrowly survived a blizzard.

I ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain! I learned a life lesson and cracked a rib (that wasn’t part of the lesson).

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller

I trained as a Forward Observer in the U.S. Army. I enjoy survival challenges and have been tested in tough conditions all over the world.
