Lions and Tigers and Bears… OH NO!!!……….. Adventure!   We all have our definitions of what that word means.  To Matt Guthmiller, adventure turned out to be just a little trip around the world.   Oh….and he did it at the age of 19 making him the youngest person in history to accomplish this incredible feat.  In this episode, Matt joins us to talk about how he came up with the idea and made this dream a reality.   People fly around the world all the time in the airline industry.   It’s nothing for a 787 to cross the ocean from continent to continent.  Try it in a small single engine airplane with 200 gallons of extra fuel on board, 25% over gross weight,  dodging thunderstorms, drinking coke and eating oreos, all while catching up on the latest Game of Thrones from your buddies on a satellite phone.  Matt sure had a great time and his story is simply amazing.   Perfect example of…….Dream It – Plan It – DO IT!!!   Congrats Matt on an accomplishment of a lifetime!
