    The idea of paying for travel by obtaining objects that can be sold on eBay or local antique malls has been around for a long time. Now, the internet is beginning to play a role and attract more attention to this fine idea. It's often refered to as artisan travel, but there is really a lot more to it. Milwaukee has at least one coffee packaging company that started this way, and Minneapolis has Torke coffee and also several small oriental importers of profilactic devices and other high profit, often regarded as near necessity goods.

    The medical community has been talking about new data that show 4 cups of coffee per day is a powerful insurance policy against many kinds of cancer and intestinal problems. While that is a lot of coffee to drink at retail prices, by combining a trip to Guatemala and it's Maya indian ruin tours with the coffee market in Guatemala City, it does not have to be a financial venture, but rather a profitable and healthful one.

    So, this is what we plan to help people who express an interest do. It is up to you to communicate your interest however and begin saving for such a trip.

    In Milwaukee Wisconsin, there exists one of the nation's few technical legal libraries. So what is a technical library? It is mainly a library that is kept up to date and has a deep data base of US patends, easily available online or in print. I have used this library to find out if my electronic devices could be patended, and yes, they could be. However, after writing my own patend application and having it reviewed by a patend lawyer, I learned that there really is no such thing as doing a patend without traveling to the US patend office and meeting with the authorities. While I am not an attorney, it is becoming more and more possible to do the travel part and be in communication with an attorney. This of course reduces the cost per hour and per trip, even if you find a patend attorney who makes frequent trips to Washington DC anyway. My grandfather had more than 25 patends, and even today, it is really not as expensive up front as one might expect.

    I expect a patend could be done for about $3000, even with an attorney involved. The largest cost is due to changing fees that are ever increasing. It used to be that a patend was good for 15 years or so, and that is still possible, however the cost after the 7th year becomes prohibitive it the idea is not making money.

    Because I hold two technical degrees (AAS) and an AS degree in non-destructive testing, I am keenly aware that there are two opposing forces that users of libraries have to deal with. They do not want to re-invent from nothing a test or procedure, but yet the past, copying an ancient technical innovation is not going to be sufficient to meet most problem resolution efforts either. The law school in Wisconsin has always enjoyed the reputation as be approximately the second best in the nation. So, it occured to me that because I was satisfied with my optical data aquisition patend experience, that others might also wish to travel and expand their reputation or their knowledge horizons by the same means that I used when I found myself without work.

    Another area I can help with is laser operation. Today, many high wattage lasers are available, especially powerful cutting tool types. I seek to aquire certification as a professional engineer, and would like to use infrared cutting lasers as a specialty stepping stone to be certified. One barrier is that federal law currently has not been updated to allow operation of power lasers. While it is legal to own one, it is another area where the legality of dangerous operation is poorly defined. In keeping with my business model, I avoid any sort of risky or dangerous operations, but there certainly are applications for equipment that may be used around risky situations. Hovercrafting is another such area Most people don't realize that rescue hovercraft can not set down on water, or come up easily to hover from water. There are special technical considerations that make such a seeminly simple operation into a long protracted discussion. I wish to keep my web site simple because, in the end, it is not intended to educate or argue, but to attract other like minded and serious expeditionary travelers with deep pockets. Any sales person for a mid size corporation will likely be able to tell you that there are many people who ask about making finders fees or similar payment for finding a customer. As a rule in the legal community, if the person setting up the contact does nothing but make the communication possible, then he is entitled to a finder's fee, but not a percentage commission. My business model is a break from traditional regulated sales prospecting. I welcome contacts from webmasters with similar web development goals. In the end, either the internet helps economic recovery and decentralized marketing, or furthers the hinderances and encubers the webmasters who must, in effect, add value to an existing product or service. The fundamental change in laws that is needed is to relieve web sellers who add value of the same burden of liability that the laws have always upheld against those who would simply copy and retail or 'bootleg' the arts and crafts of others. However, there is no doubt in my mind, which, even if I brag, is a good mind, that a place in modern society exists for such added value internet services and goods. Some figures say food inflation is approximately 10 percent per year. At that rate, it will pay to visit Argentina to buy beef, or to take a trip to Sheboygan county, Wisconsin the world's bratwurst capital. Even groundwater is becoming scarce as fracking for more energy increases. Being here, center of Chocolate Milk heaven, I may not get to travel too much. But, luckily, I have learned over the years where the sausage companies buy their beef, and where the cocoa beans come into New Jersey from to be trucked here to be ground up, and much more. In many ways, I am the modern version of Jones, without the politics of pensions and obsolescence that professors have to deal with today.
