Being truly nomadic while working is an odd experience. With our jobs earning us plenty of money without ever needing to be in a particular place, we’re free to live wherever we want to in the world. This feels really odd. Most people in the US live where they do because that is where they… Read More Where Would You Live?
Way back in May and June of 2016, when we first hit the road, we were really deer in the headlights. I’m not saying that we are seasoned vets now, but we have settled in to road life. Not surprisingly, it takes quite a while to really find your rhythm and preferences for traveling. But,… Read More Year 2 Mindset- What’s Changed?
This post will be a little bit different from the usual here on The Reckless Choice. Six months ago, I pulled a muscle while working as a ski instructor. It turned into a rare and painful condition.

We saw tons of amazing animals, tons of geysers (which were much more impressive than the ones in Iceland we saw two years ago, honestly), great hiking, and we even got to go swimming. There is one problem though for a guy like me. I really like whitewater kayaking.… Read More Yellowstone Has One Problem
“Some days are better than others, but most are better than average.” – Jason Wynn Recently we’ve been just kinda figuring out our routine.
