Before The Journey

Are you an aspiring full-timer wondering what it takes to live this incredible lifestyle?  For some of us, it’s a leap of faith.  I’m not retired.  I had no pension, disability, 401k, nor the savings.  I took an incredible risk because it was “time.”  This is how it all began.

The thing I find strange about blogs is that they’re chronologically backwards.  I feel it would be fun sometimes to read about someone’s journey from beginning to present.  The following posts are in chronological order.  Enjoy!
