One of the great parts about FIRE life is that it allows you to live unconventionally. Instead of a hurried, one week vacation, you can enjoy lazy, multi-week road trips. I’m in the middle of one right now.
The Road More Traveled
We left Colorado on a Saturday and our first stop was Casey Brewing, famous for producing really good beer:
Our next stop was Moab. Moab was beautiful, but really hot:
After Moab, we headed to Las Vegas to visit with family. On the way, we stopped at the Iceberg Drive-in. This was not a healthy decision:
Early one morning, Older Daughter (OD) and I headed off to Red Rock Canyon to hike Turtlehead Peak:
I didn’t think OD would be able to complete the hike. It’s a 5-mile round-trip with 2000′ of elevation gain. And just to make it more difficult, the temperature was close to 100 degrees. However, OD is stubborn and persistent. 90 minutes later, we were standing at the top:
After Las Vegas, we headed to Los Angeles:
We spent the July 4th holiday with the Waffles on Wednesday couple. And since it was Wednesday:
On Saturday, we’ll head down to San Diego for 4 days. After that, we head back to southern Utah for a family reunion before heading home.
50 Years Left Of Vacation Days
I’m thankful for my FIREy life. It’s great to be able to meander at a leisurely pace:
- Much of our time in California will be spent mindlessly wandering around the beach. No problem!! We’re going to be here for 8 days!
- We’ll spend multiple days in the car this trip. No problem! I have 50 years left of vacation days!
Life is good.
