(<small>pron.</small> keyl<small>)</small> is from [[Chicago]], [[Illinois]] in the [[United States]]. In 2007, he
began hitching in
, and has since found himself on
of the Americas
for much longer than initially planned
Over the years,
has come to share the belief with some fellow hitchers than plans are the killers of adventure. Now, he follows roads based on ''ideas'' alone.
== Velabas ==
He maintains a virtual presence at [http://www.velabas.com/ Velabas].com. Velabas is meant to document his travels throughout the world. Although his most recent exploits began in August of 2009, it was a full year before he began writing at Velabas.
Velabas is not only to document his travels, but to share drawings and ficiton witing as well. The idea of the website is to claim his own space in the virtual world outside of any pre-fabricated format web builder. It is also meant to link to like-minded travelers' websites in order to foster global connections.
The journey is not a continuous one, the idea being
he will take breaks when necessary. However,
journey must always pick up exactly where it had left off, to create a global continuity
road and water travel.
