I don't seem to be doing anything else with my life, I think it would add great tales to my bag. I was thinking about doing a kayak-around-the-world trip for a brief time, not sure why I stopped thinking of it, other than the years it would take to finish.
I did a moderate overland moto trip in 2002, 5000 miles, 30 days, 250cc dualpurpose, but I stayed in the USA (wanted to do part of Canada but couldn't due to several factors)
I was talking to an old campground ranger that took a trip around the world on a bicycle back in the 1970s with no plan or goal other than riding for 3 years. He had stories of veiws, people, and close calls, sounded like it was right up my alley, the moto trip that I was on at the time was rather extemporaneous it's self.
[EDIT added ranger stuff]
