While the world was distracted by the tech bubble of the 90’s, Lorin was busy studying the undervalued metals market. His love of adventure prompted him to develop a trading system that is ideal for a traveler. After 20+ years of fine-tuning, he’s learned to spot setups with low-risk, high-reward probabilities that are perfect for the wandering lifestyle.  His thirst for adventure and willingness to step out of his comfort zone has allowed him enjoy some epic adventures with his family.  He and his wife of over 20 years have two boys.  

Together, the four of them have traveled the US, each on their own motorcycle.  They have enjoyed traveling in motor homes and custom vans and have even traveled the east coast via a sailboat. In general they have tried to spend as much time together as possible before their boys grew up and moved away.  They enjoy living life to the fullest.

Pat began trading commodities straight out of college, taking a  job as a pit reporter at the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. He quickly moved to the trading floor as head clerk at a trading firm where he fell in with a small group of successful traders who would become his mentors. He sold his car, put $5,000 in a trading account, and never looked back. Two years later he moved to Chicago to trade in the Soybean Options pit. He stood shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of other pit traders in Chicago, managed his risk, turned a nice profit, and fled the city for a wandering life.

He sailed around the world aboard his own boat, drove around most of it in a VW bus, raced across America in a vintage Porsche, sailed and began raising a family in Mexico, and is currently wandering around Mexico and the U.S. in a vintage Airstream. He is now in his 20th year of trading, the vast majority while traveling abroad in over 60 countries.

”What am I going to do with my life?” That one simple question—posed over too many pitchers of beer—had an answer that demanded action.


Stepping into an unknowable future for a life of adventure takes courage, decisiveness, an unwavering belief in yourself…
