*Serious Face* (don’t worry, it won’t last!)
[ So there was this thing I was doing (ZDXP) between 2010 and 2012 -- and my whole website (and life) revolved around it. In fact the address of this page used to be the front page of my site. But what I was doing is -- for all intents and purposes -- over (at least until it's resurrected in some way). So for now, these ZDXP pages exist as a sort of history. I just wanted to point that out in case you read this section and get excited. -- Zero ]
In May of 2010, I disconnected from my “conventional” life by deliberately deciding to push myself beyond my comfort zone.
Not just in following and interacting with me as I traveled, but in playing a significant roll in what I did, where I went, and who I met.
And that actually happened — I quite literally became the protagonist in a real-life choose-your-own-adventure.
And throughout all of this, I hoped that the extra exposure I got would help make me more visible to my “fashionably late mate”. Because — and guys, don’t read this — at the heart of this was a love story. At least I hoped it was a love story. *sigh*
This experience — this adventure — ultimately became known as…
ZDXP (because that’s a lot easier than saying what it stands for!)
In many ways, ZDXP was a success…
My road trip was, in fact, epic — I drove over 50,000 miles coast-to-coast!
I was approached by production companies, publishing houses, featured in magazines, and interviewed online & also on live television.
And my primary goal of providing a meaningful experience to others? Many people would say I did just that. And that’s pretty awesome!
But then it ended.
But really, it had to.
After almost two years of independently funded travel (without sponsorships), I had to put my little adventure “show” on hiatus to conserve what limited resources I had left to provide me with the time to figure out: “What next?“.
And that’s sort of where we are now. Indefinite hiatus.
