Our Story

Hello! Hello! Hello! We are Army and Ryan, a couple in our early-30s living in Southern California: land of the rising cost-of-living, as we prepare to whittle down 90% of everything we own, take up side hustles and overtime to save up $41,000, quit our jobs, and take off into our new life of adventure.

   Hello! Hello! Hello! We are Army and Ryan, a couple in our early-30s living in Southern California: land of the rising cost-of-living, as we prepare to whittle down 90% of everything we own, take up side hustles and overtime to save up $41,000, quit our jobs, and take off into our new life of adventure.

   We are both outdoorsy people who love rock climbing, hiking, and just some good ol’ general wandering. Oh, and eating. Lots of eating. But as “responsible” adults, we’ve always worked hard to pay our bills, bills, bills all the while trying to save at least a little bit for our own retirement as well. This meant we couldn’t go on as many adventures as we’d like. We felt a little bit trapped, as if we were on a vicious cycle just phoning it in at our daily routine just to make ends meet.

   This lead us to the massively exciting and kinda terrifying plan to shift our careers into freelance, sell everything (yes, even our graphic novels – GASP!), and travel the world in an adventurous, comfortable (budget-friendly), health conscious way! So, we set a target date and financial goal to start the countdown clock. We are very excited to document this process for anyone to enjoy and learn from. Our successes, mistakes, and especially our adventures.
