Going out of town, yet again!

Published September 28, 2015   Posted in How to Think

Once again, I’ll be away from the keyboard for several days over the next week and a half.  This week I am across the country attending an event for my company.  Everything is paid for, so this should end up being a pretty good time.  This coming weekend, my wife and I will be joining her folks in Albuquerque, NM for the massive yearly hot air balloon fiesta.

Check our FullTimeExplorers.com web site next week for a look at what we experienced while in the beautiful state of New Mexico.  I hear that a bunch of hot air balloons will be there.

But, do you think that I’m going to leave you with nothing to read while we are out of town?  Of course not!  I love you people way too much for that.

Remember the 4-part Our Next Life series that I ran while my wife and I were away in New York? Well, I’ve got another blog series coming at you, a 3-parter.  This one, titled ‘Mastering your early retirement lifestyle‘, distills this whole early retirement thing down into simple terms and talks about how to achieve your permanent paradise.

The first post will run tomorrow, the next on Thursday and the final post the following Monday.  Sadly, no Friday Feast this week.

  1. Enjoy the work event. I love traveling on the company’s dime, that’s for sure.

  2. Have a safe and fun trip! Look forward to seeing the hot air balloon pics!

  3. Safe travels for you and Courtney. Also, Happy Anniversary in advance!

    We just drove though Albuquerque yesterday on our way back from southern Colorado. We were there for my daughter’s wedding on Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful weather for the drive. It was especially nice from Las Vegas to the Santa Fe area.

      Thanks Bryan, appreciate it. It’s been a while since I’ve been through Albuquerque, and I’ve never really spent any real time there. I’m anxious to spend some time there this and next week.

    I look forward to the wisdom while you kick back in a hot air balloon. It’s your chance to literally “rise above it all”! Have a blast!

    I will be at part of the hot air balloon festival too! Same deal, as part of a work trip.

    Hot air balloons scare the sh#t out of me. So do heights. I hear New Mexico is gorgeous though so I’m sure you’ll have a blast! Take lots of pictures (why do I already know I don’t have to tell you that??)

    Also looking forward to your new series, can’t wait to see where you take the permanent paradise concept!

    Have fun!

      Yeah if you’re afraid of heights, I can see hot air balloons not being your thing. 🙂

      I went up in a hot air balloon in Sedona and it was quite a trip – actually, it wasn’t nearly as nerve-racking as I thought it might have been. New Mexico should be an awesome place to float around in the air too.

      And yup, don’t worry – my camera will be on me and ready to go! 🙂
