Financial Independence Update- July 2021

In July we finally felt fully settled in on the Big Island of Hawaii and well acquainted with finding our way around. We did a ton of hiking in July including two of the most difficult hikes on the island. On back to back weekends we hiked to the summits of Mauna Loa (the largest … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- July 2021

Financial Independence Update- June 2021

We spent all of June in Hawaii, and it was absolutely amazing. Whitney's contract has been just about perfect. She's working outpatient at a 1:1 clinic seeing 5-7 patients per day most days when all is said and done, with great patients and coworkers. She is also only working 24-27 hours per week (three 8-9 … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- June 2021

Financial Independence Update- May 2021

May was a great month personally and for business, but a terrible month for my investments. As you may have guessed following my crypto asset allocation article recently, having a concentrated allocation in crypto was rough in May with the massive drop across the board in crypto assets. These sorts of sudden drops are par … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- May 2021

Financial Independence Update- April 2021

At the end of April, we got some good news, and things have been pretty busy since then: Whitney's Hawaii PT license was finally approved! We had nearly given up on her ever actually getting this license since she originally started the process in July of last year. Prior to receiving this license, we had … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- April 2021

Financial Independence Update- March 2021

We spent the beginning of March in Cozumel, Mexico before flying to the west coast to spend the majority of the month in Puerto Vallarta. Cozumel and Puerto Vallarta actually ended up being our two favorite places that we visited in Mexico. We had a great time in both places, full of great food and … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- March 2021

Financial Independence Update- February 2021

At the end of January we flew to Mexico and spent all of February there starting our Mexican adventure. The weather is great, the cost of living is low, and the tourist areas are fairly empty right now, so the trip has been exactly what we were hoping for so far. One thing we didn’t … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- February 2021

Financial Independence Update- January 2021

January was a good month for me and Whitney. After a tough year for everyone last year, we were determined to start 2021 on the right foot. The month seemed to go by very quickly, but we got a lot of things done that had been on our to-do list for a while. The first … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- January 2021

Financial Independence Update- December 2020

2020 is finally over, and I couldn't be more excited. Even though the end of a year is only an arbitrary measure, it's still nice to look forward to an end to a difficult period of time and hopefully the beginning of a return to normalcy. Now that we've been back at home for several … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- December 2020

Financial Independence Update- November 2020

November was a relatively uneventful month spent at home in Virginia. Most weeks I worked between 10-20 hours at my new PRN outpatient physical therapy job, while spending most of my time working on getting in better physical shape. I averaged 2-3 hikes (5-10 miles each) per week along with 5 days per week lifting … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- November 2020

Financial Independence Update- October 2020

October was an exciting month. We finished up our cross country roadtrip, settled back in at home in Virginia, started temporary PRN physical therapy jobs, and celebrated my birthday! The roadtrip was awesome, and I already can't wait to get back on the road to visit some more national parks. Although it was an amazing … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- October 2020
