  1. “Wow, nature” is right! I need to spend more time in Utah.

    Thanks for the feature, Steve. And have yourself a fantastic weekend!

  2. If that photo doesn’t make you want to visit Bryce Canyon National I’m not sure what will. Thanks for share some great reads! Have a great weekend!

  3. The market’s have me nervous too. Not nervous enough to change what I do, but still nervous.

    Utah is quite lovely and congrats to you for retiring (kinda) and being able to enjoy it!

    1. Yup, we’re just gonna live it up while we can and the market is hot. It’s nice seeing the graph keep going up even though we know it’ll even out…eventually.

  4. Thanks for including me, Steve! My first Friday Feast – Woohoo!

    The market is looking very overvalued, but your comparison with art is right. It is why valuation is not a clear cut science, it moves with people’s emotions and we have to ride through the waves!

    1. Thanks Mama Fish, appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to comment. And yup, the market is all about riding the waves. It’s a good wave right now! 🙂

  5. Thank you, Steve. I’m truly honored to be included in your weekly feast. I’m not worthy! And that photo of Bryce is absolutely breathtaking. Have a great weekend, my friend. Can’t wait to see what you and Courtney have in store for me with this week’s edition of “A Streamin’ Life.” Cheers.

    1. You’re most welcome, Miss Mazuma. And appreciate your comment about my photography. There’s a ton out here right in our own backyard.

  6. Greetings! Great post as always – really enjoy reading up on your financial facts and advice. It’s great to see how you made early retirement a reality for you – show’s how it is possible for everyone! Love how you featured many others in the personal finance community, people are able to do such amazing things with their money no matter how much they make.
    I was wondering if you ever considered Housesitting as a means for income. It is a low-maintenance job and has the benefit of free accommodation. Housesitters have the chance to earn some money on the side while still having time to work and relax – on the job! I recommend visiting a website like to view opportunities for you!

    1. Thanks Cheryl! I haven’t really considered House sitting because it requires you to live in someone else’s digs, but I do acknowledge that it can probably be an amazing adventure. And you get paid for it, too. Hard to beat that.

  7. Awesome hiking at Bryce. I had undiagnosed severe anemia when my wife and I hiked there. As usual we hiked twenty plus miles a day and I was absolutely falling apart. We are both strong marathoners and I was usually faster than her but that trip I was awful. It was weeks later when a doctor determined I was transfusion level low on iron. I’ll always remember that as one of the most beautiful and awful trips of my life as I honestly think I came to deaths door several times driven by male pride. The high desert is no place to be with zero hemoglobin and a fitness beast of a wife!

  8. Hi Steve,

    Your Friday feast is really beautiful. Your best picture of the camping shows how adventurous you are and the landscape image of the national canyon park is the one I liked most in your feast.
