This photo shows our Land Rover Defender parked at a rocky outcrop on the edge of the the Dhana desert in Arabia. We are exploring the rock formations before we drive into the star dunes and set up camp for the night. In a couple of hours, we'll be sitting around a campfire with the milky way galaxy extending overhead from horizon to horizon. A Land Rover, giant star dunes, friends sitting around a campfire, and the milky way overhead is about as good as it gets. It's also a terrific time to focus on a few great thoughts.
Great lives are built on great thoughts, and miserable lives are built on drivel and hype.
One of the most destructive forces on planet earth is television. It's the original weapon of mass destruction and ruins millions of lives each year as it fills people's minds with rubbish. God gave you a brain designed to think great thoughts, and television turns it into a trash bin.
Many people think I'm a little hard on television. After all, it's only chewing gum for your mind, and perhaps they are right.
Some people want to live in Nowhere Land and don't want to do anything with their life.
A wide screen high definition television is an excellent way to anesthetize their mind so they forget about their dreams.
That may be ok for some people, but it's not ok for me.
I'm constantly on the prowl looking for great thoughts that I can put into my mind, because I know that great lives are built on great thoughts.
I've built my life on a few great thoughts.
I believe that everyone has the ability to achieve excellence in at least one area of their life. I chose medicine as my area of excellence.
I believe that love is the most positive and most powerful force in the universe, and that when love gets inside you, it makes you into a healthy person.
When your mind is full of thoughts that are consistent with love, your mind is exactly the way God designed it to be.
When your heart is full of emotions that are consistent with love, your heart is exactly the way God meant for it to be.
II believe that the most important thing I do in my life is raise my children, and if my children grow up to have good values, if they have good self-esteem, and if they are still my best friend, then I am a success.
I believe that sailing around the world with my family on a small yacht was one of the smartest things I ever did. It showed my children that it's possible to live their dreams.
I believe Land Rover Defenders are the most awesome expeditionary vehicles ever built. It's never over in a Rover, and God willing, I will drive one around the world.
Finally, I believe there is no limit to how good my life can become.
That's my short list of great thoughts. What's on your list?
Life is good.

Captain Dave and the crew of Exit Only sailed around the world on their Privilege 39 catamaran. They started their voyage as novices, and they finished as experts. They managed storms at sea, survived a global tsunami in Thailand, navigated through the atolls of the South Pacific, and sailed up Pirate Alley in the Red Sea. Sailing UNI chronicles their voyage and passes on the lessons they learned during their eleven year circumnavigation.

Travel with us around planet earth on Overland UNI, and before long you might decide to make your own trip.
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.
