Seth Stivala Rise superhero fly leap jump bestseller

Bent on a Bestseller! At the time of writing this, I have 226 days to write a bestseller. The timeframe being before I turn 30 years old. So what’s the hurry? Well, as we all know turning 30 is a turning point in our lives. Some people freak out. Others reflect on all they’ve learned. However, most try to do something extraordinary either before or on the day they turn 30. I intend to do both (I will announce something on my 30th that I will be doing in 2018). This article is my before hand. The reason I’ve chosen this is that I’ve alwaysRead More →

State: Florida So yesterday Jim picked me up and we did some catching up on the ride to his apartment. A long time ago Jim went to our church back home in Maryland and is a friend of the family. Jim moved down to Tampa to do some church planting because he felt God calling him there. He is currently a young adults director at the Radiant Church in Tampa. Jim told me how the church operates and how it’s been growing and honestly, I think all churches should do this. They have groups of all different activities. They started off with a few groupsRead More →

State: Maine Date: 05/05/16 We woke up when the sunlight hit us in the car. I didn’t sleep well (during the night it got down to 34 degrees and the weather app said it felt like 25). I agree with the weather app despite being in a car with three layers on. Harley was smart and grabbed his sleeping bag and slept great. Sunrise was at 5:15am, which was a lot earlier than either of us were used to. Yet we got up and walked into the Camden state park from the parking lot we slept in. We headed up the road and found a trailRead More →

State: Maine Date: 05/05/16 Last night I decided to switch it up and sleep on the ground because my back was hurting. I figured sleeping on something solid would alleviate my sore back. Before going to bed I stared at the sky. It was cloudy like it had been all day. My weather app was a no go because as most of you all know, there is a distinctive lack of service in Northern Maine. So on a whim I decided it would be smart to set up my rainfly tarp, just in case. I was glad I did because about midnight it started toRead More →

State: Florida I woke up from underneath my improvised billboard shelter to an amazing sunrise. I then turned on my nearly dead phone to check the weather. The weather report was wrong like it had been many times before. I was lucky that it was because it was supposed to rain all day. The new report showed it wasn’t supposed to rain until around 2 o’clock, which gave me time to make some miles toward Naples. I set about packing up my gear and went to put on my socks and found a rather large spider on one of them. I almost forgot one ofRead More →

State: Florida To prove what I’ve been saying about how I literally having a story for every day, here’s today’s. I got up and actually had a decent night’s sleep. This could be due to being in my secret spot of woods that may or may not be a wildlife preserve. Hey, at this point I consider myself wildlife. Anyways, I went to the library to charge up my phone and computer. I had the intention of writing some articles and potentially working on my book, but I totally vegged out and played some video games on one of my favorite sites I discovered inRead More →

State: Florida Today I got up tired. The mosquitos kept me up, not by biting me since my hammock has a mosquito net. They kept me up because wherever I laid my head in the hammock, the sound they made was right near me. Anyways, I got up and did my morning routine of stretches and groans, then I began to break camp while my phone charged on my new portable battery charger. I read in my bible, ate breakfast, and then got back on the road. I continued my journey north and once again someone pulled over to give me a ride. “Hey doRead More →

State: Maine Date: 05/10/16 The past few days I’ve been working my way back to Houlton Maine from Mars Hill. The first day I decided to hop on the IAT (International Appalachian Trail), however, after I came down the mountain, I couldn’t find the trail head. So I headed back to town (Mars Hill) and stopped by Al’s Diner and had breakfast. It was as delicious as I had come to expect. I then started working my way back on US 1 toward Houlton, yet after a few good miles, I came across the town of Bridgewater. While I was working my way through, IRead More →

State: Florida I didn’t sleep at all last night. Not just because I was literally surrounded by squirrels, rats, lizards and opossum (one that actually ran across my sleeping bag), but also because I was sleeping near the road….and the railroad tracks. So needless to say I got an early start. Despite the lack of sleep, I was feeling pretty good. It was a beautiful day and I was rocking and walking. I set out with the goal to break my record on miles in a day for two reasons. One because I started early and was feeling it and two because I wanted toRead More →

State: Florida I woke up this morning early, but didn’t want to leave my cocoon of happiness…so I didn’t. A few hours later I got up and broke camp. Feeling good, I set out to check some things off my list of things to do: Get to a library to refill water and power. Get to a Lowes or Walmart to buy some luggage locks and a duffle bag for when I fly out on the 19th. Get something to eat. As I walked, I noticed a Wendy’s across the road. “Sweet!” I said immediately thinking of the free small blizzard I could get becauseRead More →
