About Us

Welcome to our blog – two happy bugs!  We are Aimee and Jim.

Like most people we work way more than we vacation and we hope to change that pattern.  How you ask? Good question..we hope with some real planning and decisionSedona - Sign - Aimee & Jim 2 making to reverse this pattern.  Unfortunately we are in that “planning” stage now so more as we go.

You may ask, what’s wrong with work? Truthfully nothing, work can be fulfilling, exciting, a great way to make new friends and a way to earn a living and buy things you’ve always wanted. If can also be stressful, frustrating, painful sitting in rush hour traffic and dealing with road ragers, and especially watching the years tick by.

Nothing against work but when we are “out there” we feel more connected and alive.  We really love to hike, camp, explore, swim, climb, try crazy new foods, watch the stars (and not the ones in Hollywood), meet people, experience other cultures, and just sit and watch the beauty that’s in this world!

What we really want is to slowly reduce the days/weeks we work, increase what we save, reduce what we spend, and begin to live a life free of stuff and increase the freedom to do what we love. As we head toward our destination, we will post often about our planning, itineraries, stories (good and bad), and any other interest. We may even post some silly pictures and perhaps a few good one too. We pull this off and life will be good!

Thanks again for stopping by and we really hope you find it interesting, entertaining and possibly informative!  Hopefully you will even be part of our adventure by commenting! Let us know what you think, share your own experiences or make a suggestion or recommendation.

It’s gonna be an interesting ride!!
