Browsing category: In Retirement

Prepare yourself for some seriously stream-of-consciousness stuff in this post. Frankly, I don’t want this blog to be just another personal finance blog. I mean, we can only clamor on about saving money and “hacking” your life before it becomes dreadfully repetitive. Sure, I can tell all you awesome people to stop spending so much […]

Two week summer break on the Oregon coast

Published July 15, 2017  

This post has nothing to do with personal finance or money, so you can safely ignore this one if you’d like. But, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give you people a look at where we’re living right now. Over the past two weeks, we spent some time hanging out with family in a VRBO […]

The Friday Feast ~ the 7th of July

Published July 7, 2017  

The personal finance community is filled with so many talented writers and inspiring families in search of something better out of life than the traditional society-approved plan of buying lots of stuff and retiring in your 60s if you’re lucky. Here is a look at the best of this week’s personal finance blogs. In this episode of […]
I retired from full-time work six months ago. Imagine that, a whole half year. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long, but I’m damn near half way toward the anniversary of another year gone by since birth without a job. Amazing to think about if you ask me. Let me plainly state that I […]
Yo gang! I have another guest post from Brian G from Get Money, Got Money, this time about a summer job living out of a tent that put things into perspective. Love the story and I think you will too. “Wake up man! Brian, wake up!” “Huh, what’s going on?” “Get your ass out of your […]

My #1 RV-buying tip

Published June 21, 2017  

These damn recreational vehicles (RVs) are getting super popular these days. Especially in the last couple of years, RV ownership has thrived, and those living in these movable homes are getting younger and younger. How do we avoid getting ourselves in over our heads? While it’s great that RVing has become the “in” thing, it […]
Some will never retire early, and it’s all their fault. It’s true. The choices we make and motivations we hold make a profound impact on accomplishing our goals – early retirement or otherwise. I’ll let you know right off the bat that there’s a wheel barrel full of tough love in this post. I know […]

Luckily, I don’t have a gag reflex

Published June 5, 2017  

The longer Courtney and I live this life of full-time travel, the more patterns emerge that help to keep us happy, yet out of each other’s way as we go about our business in our 200 square foot rig. And luckily for me, one of those patterns has me working a lot with pee. Human pee. […]

Our first road accident: Tire go boom!

Published May 29, 2017  

If you’re on the road enough, it is bound to happen. For us, we were cruising down westbound I-80 with our Airstream in tow. The RAM’s speedometer read 70 MPH. Not more than 35 miles from our stopping point around Wendover Utah, things were smooth sailing. Until we heard what sounded like a gunshot. It […]
