Published July 10, 2017   Tags: ,

The sad truth is that hate is easy. It’s stupid simple to hate someone’s guts. It’s easy to disagree. It is easier to make an enemy than it is to change a tire. Hate is just too damn common in this world, perhaps because the barrier to entry is so low. Anyone can do it. […]
Good day, all! I’ve got a fun (and serious) post coming at ya from Paul Andrews who’s talking about coming to grips with your significant other’s view on money. It’s hilariously serious business.

Hey all you number lovers out there! This post is for you. Today, I’m taking a look at the Rockstar Finance Directory that J$ and I built by running some numbers. We’re pullin’ out some intel. Of course, all of these numbers depend on the blogger giving us the straight scoop. We have no reason […]
Advice is a dime-a-dozen…especially shitty advice. And about money. We humans have a way of taking conventional wisdom and turning it into gospel that gets disseminated blindly and without a second thought. Especially about money. So much of it relates to money.

We didn’t buy a yurt

Published April 26, 2017  

On April Fools day, we published a video on our YouTube channel. We stood in front of the camera and told our audience that instead of setting sail in our Airstream, we’re selling Charlie and buying a yurt instead.

Published March 20, 2017   Tags: , is a blog I started to chronicle our path towards early retirement. Now that I’ve reached that goal, I am confronted with a question that I had never anticipated answering: Where do I take the blog? Is it dead? Maybe just…hibernating?

You don’t often think about Instagram when you’re talking personal finance, but today, let’s change that! For the record (not to mention a shameless plug), I have an Instagram account associated […]
Taking stunning photos doesn’t require expensive equipment. On a reader’s request, this article describes my very simple process of making kick-ass photographs without spending stupid money on equipment that won’t do a thing to improve my photography. Here’s the key: In my view, the best camera system is whatever one that you feel the most comfortable […]
It’s the holidays, and I’m in a free-wheelin’, fun-loving spirit, so let’s burn a post this week by talking about something unrelated to personal finance. Yup, we’re talking about pet peeves. The things that shouldn’t bother me so much, but do. My biggest pet peeve? Like, ever? It’s when someone describes having a baby as “starting a […]

We live in an RV, not under a bridge!

One of the most common questions that we get asked after spilling the beans about living full-time in our Airstream goes something like this: “Oh, so you guys must eat out a lot then, right?” And our answer is always the same. “Umm…no. Why do you ask?” “You probably don’t have much of a kitchen, […]
