First, a little background about me.
I'm 34, living in metro Detroit. Came here from Chicago for work
(engineer in the auto industry). I've been working here for 5 years, make a decent living, but looking for a new adventure.
Some of my hobbies include: camping, fishing
, motorcycle racing
I'm a pretty laid back guy that enjoys to just kick back in the backyard and drink a beer
watching a bonfire all night.
For the longest time, I've been thinking about selling almost everything I have, get out of all debt, and go sailing for a few years, just to reset my head
. To the point I would look at the materials that I have, and think, "it's just stuff" and isn't really making me happy.
Well, the time has come. As of today, I can say that I'm debt free. Student loans, car loan, credit card debt are all paid off, what a great feeling this is.
I don't own a house, not in a lease
with my current
home, I feel free.
I've been putting a list of all the things I will be selling, and saving as much as I could to buy a boat
and live aboard for at least a year, or until my money
My next steps are to read and learn as much as I can. Im also looking to travel somewhere in the US during the Holiday break and look to be a crew member
Sorry for the long post, safe travels to everyone, and hope to meet some of you at some point in my life!
