Re: I'm free

Yesterday I had a pretty surreal experience. I got a big bonus and the best performance review of my life--glowing, all positive, no negatives at all... And then I was fired. It was quite a shock. I tallied up the finances and realized that with only a little bit of belt-tightening, I've already ac...

Re: Free copy of my book (featuring PP)

Jake, thanks for the book!  I read it yesterday in one sitting.  I found it very interesting and helpful.  I still don't completely understand the "unjobbing" option real well, but the other choices all made a lot of sense.  It was well written and fun to read. Thanks Desert, that's great to hear. ...

Re: How Many Items of Clothing do Nomads Own?

I'm not a digital nomad, but I only have two pairs of pants as well, and seven T-shirts all of the exact same brand (Hanes Tagless) that lasted the longest in a test of many different brands. Enough underwear and socks to last a week, with the socks all being identical Darn Tough socks. Reading abo...

Re: How Many Items of Clothing do Nomads Own?

We've got some permanent nomads here, Mark & Jake. I'm curious- how many outfits do you gentleman travel with? And if I may ask, Jake, does your wife carry that many more outfits than you? I met a National Geographic guide on a tour who said he had all his possessions down to two backpacks. I have ...
