Driving Towards FIRE - Alternate Lifestyles for FI

Driving Towards FIRE - Alternate Lifestyles for FI

By Brett
Just your average Mid-Thirties married couple on a debt free and financial independent journey. We travel, work, and play in our 42 foot 5th wheel RV named Chappie. We’ve been on the road more than 2 years (730 days) and we’ve successfully paid off $180,000 worth of debt. We have just $63,000 left. Each week we’ll discuss our plans, path, & journey to reach FI. We wanted to have a place where the nomadic, travel, debt free, & Financial Independence communities have a place to share their stories with us and others. Please join us!
