How to Travel for a Year on Less Than $5,000

October 4th, 2017 marks one year on the road for us! Before leaving the USA we researched and read many blogs to see what this venture would cost us.  We wanted to be prepared.  It can be hard to gauge, but we started out with a goal of spending an average of $50 or less a day...

Can a Recluse Live a Life of Travel?

  As a child I dreamed of building my own dwelling in the woods and living alone, self-sufficient off the land.  I like people, I really do.  I love a good party and I revel in great conversations, but a part of me longs to be secluded.  I love my alone time. Does that make me...

What We Need; Packing for Two Years

A little over one year ago we decided to sell everything we owned except what would fit in our two backpacks and take off to travel the world, as light as possible.   Over the next eight months that followed we quit our jobs, sold our stuff including cars, a motorcycle, our home and just about...

He and his family (his father and his four other siblings) lived with us for a bit while they were getting reestablished in TX after their move from NY.  They were going through some difficult times, so my mom and dad took them...

Road Trip

We pulled out of Raleigh the morning of Aug 8th. We had loaded everything we still owned into our car. The good old Subaru looked like it was ready to burst at the seams.  We stood there on the parking lot staring at the car, everything we owned packed like a futomaki.  Barely recognizable things plastered against...

On the Verge

As we loaded up my cousin's truck I felt a relief.  The next step felt tangible.   We have been renovating for a month and are exhausted – so ready to start our road trip to Phoenix.  I felt that we have been on the verge ever since we left the company, needing to get our ducks in a...

Renovations and Goodbyes

A month of renovations and goodbyes are almost behind us now.  Weekdays and weekends meld into one long weekend as we awake to work on the renovation of an investment property that we will rent out before leaving the area.  We are camped out on an air mattress in the living room.  We wake in the...
