HEAD OUTBACK AND BEYOND AROUND THE WORLD WITH TEAM MAXING OUT


CHOOSING THE MEANING OF YOUR LIFE

You have the privilege of deciding the meaning of every event in your life.

You can choose a meaning that empowers you, or you can interpret it in a negative fashion so that it becomes a weapon of self-destruction.

The frame you place around an event makes all the difference.

You will never be able to live your dreams if you don't master the art of creating positive reframes.

Positive reframes get you through the hard times when nothing else will.

Nobody likes to be stuck in life, but I would rather be stuck in the Empty Quarter of Saudi Arabia with sand up to my axles than be stuck at home doing nothing.

My green Land Rover is severely bogged down two hundred kilometers into the Empty Quarter, and I am happy to be there.


Getting stuck is inconvenient, but it's not the end of the world. It's simply time for shovels and sand ladders. It's part of the adventure and goes with the territory.

If I never get stuck and have to dig out, I may as well drive around the mall parking lot. You don't need a Defender to drive in a parking lot, and even if you had one, it would mock you because that's not what Land Rovers are for.

People who live their dreams are masters of the positive reframe.

Problems don't stop them; they reframe them. They are always looking for ways to go around, over, under and straight through the challenges of life, and they reframe them as adventures.

People who master the art of the positive reframe have a special name.

They are called Unstoppable, Consistently Positive, Endlessly Persistent, Doers of Dreams.

Captain Save Our Souls

Awesome music video that captures the essence of what it's like to sail offshore in a catamaran around the world when conditions are less than perfect. David Abbott from Too Many Drummers sings the vocals, and he also edited the footage from our Red Sea adventures. This is the theme song from the Red Sea Chronicles.


Red Sea Blues

Sailing up the Red Sea is not for the faint of heart. From the Bab al Mandeb to the Suez Canal, adventures and adversity are in abundance. If you take things too seriously, you just might get the Red Sea Blues.


Red Sea Chronicles Trailer

If you like drum beats, and you like adventure, then have a listen to the Red Sea Chronicles Trailer.



Red Sea Chronicles Episode 1 - When Flying Fish Attack

Flying fish assault Exit Only in the middle of the night as we sail through the Arabian Gulf from the Maldives to Oman. And so begins our Red Sea adventures.


Red Sea Chronicles Episode 2 - Pirate Alley

Sailing through Pirate Alley between Yemen and Somalia involves calculated risk. It may not be Russian Roulette, but it is a bit of a worry. Follow Team Maxing Out as they navigate through Pirate Alley.


Red Sea Chronicles Episode 3 - Aden, Yemen

Stopping in Yemen was just what the doctor ordered. We refueled, repaired our alternator, and we made friends with our gracious Yemeni hosts. We also went to Baskins Robbins as a reward for surviving Pirate Alley.


Red Sea Chronicles Episode 4- Gate of Sorrows and Sandstorms

After you survive Pirate Alley, you must sail through the Gate of Sorrows (Bab Al Mandab) at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. The Gate of Sorrows lived up to its name with fifty knots of wind and a sandstorm that pummeled Exit Only for two days. Life is good.

Save A Tree Bookstore

Although I like the feel of a paper book in my hand, I love trees even more. When people purchase an eBook, they actually save trees and save money as well. Ebooks are less expensive and have no negative impact on the environment. All of Dr. Dave's books are available at Save A Tree Bookstore. Visit the bookstore today and start putting good things into your mind. It's easy to fill your mind with positive things using eBooks. No matter where you are or what you are doing, you can pull out your smart phone or tablet and start reading. You can even use electronic highlighters and make annotations in your eBooks just like paper books.
