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

Current Crypto Asset Allocation and Return: April 2021

It has been exactly a year now since I made my very first two cryptocurrency purchases in April of 2020. This came after over a month of a very deep dive into not only the past and potential future of crypto, but also a thorough examination of the macroeconomic impact of COVID. Once I understood … Continue reading Current Crypto Asset Allocation and Return: April 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

Why You Should Consider Investing in Bitcoin in 2021

I remember watching the Bitcoin bull market of 2017 and thinking that people buying then were crazy. After all, I'd spent time in 2016 and early 2017 researching cryptocurrencies and determining that the risk wasn't worth it with all things considered. It was completely baffling to me watching the price increase 20x after that. Comparisons … Continue reading Why You Should Consider Investing in Bitcoin in 2021

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

A little late getting this update posted! Better late than never :D! We were in the process of finishing up our 8-week cross country road trip in September. It was an awesome trip, but we were excited about getting back home by the end. All the driving (12,800 miles) and hiking (310 miles) really started to … Continue reading Financial Independence Update- September 2020
