The Wandering Capitalist is Roll’in into Golan
Hey Now Everybody –
Israel is a lot like Chicago and New Jersey. In what way do you say? Well, Israel has the same amount of people as Chicago (just under 8 million) and physically is the size of NJ.
An a lot of Jews of course!
Point is, to drive from one tip to the other takes just under 6 hours. This is like doing my Chicago to Evansville “pilgrimage” that I do every month back home. SHHHit.
Change in strategy – Just rent a car and roll.
Be like the wind.
Quick comment on the Golan Heights – I was up at the Syrian border and they have UN soldiers observing the “demilitarized zone” between the two countries. … making sure agreements are kept and no surprise attacks happen. From this perch, you can literally watch the civil war going on…crazy. Two points they made…one is Syria wants the Golan back badly…and two Israel will NEVER give it back. Why? Never give up the high ground. A truism of war for time eternal.
Something tells me Syria has enough problems of there own at the moment…
Here is a pic of the border. You guessed it, Israel ends where the greenery ceases…
So I drove around Golan. From Wine to War to Ruins. I went to this one archaeological site…a tel of the ancient city of Dan. This place was mentioned in the Bible! Abraham was there…yea THAT Abraham…and now Brian. vid 1:18
Keep the news news coming !

See you Thanksgiving! Good to hear from you, my friend.
We missed you this past weekend. There were plenty of opportunities for the thumb trick for sure. Sounds like the trip is going well. You haven’t hit me up for a donation for some time. I went to you site and didn’t see a link. Am I missing something?
Hey Tim – great to hear from you…yea, talked to Nowlin and said you guys had the usual great time..next year I will do better planning in order to make it for sure….thanks for donating again…what is really great is making a donation once per year….helps build momentum…I always knew I could count on you, my friend. Goto http://www.thewanderingcapitalist.org and then look for the buttons on the left side…the 3rd one down is the “donate” button..that will take you to fundraise.com and then you go from there. Thanks, Tim. Keep in touch. One of my close friends recently moved to Newburyport…so now two close friends there…will give a call when I am running in your area.
adios for now.
Keep it coming! I really enjoy following your travels, Brian!!
