Anyone that knows us, knows that we are fitness fanatics. This is for a number of reasons. One, we are sticklers for efficiency, and obesity from over-eating and under exercising is pretty much the inverse of efficiency. Secondly, we both have a family history of health problems compounded by inactivity and obesity. And finally, we… Continue reading Health is Wealth: Frugal Fitness Guide. ...

You’d think that a small Japanese hatchback with a 1.8L 4 cyl engine and 6 speed transmission would get pretty decent fuel mileage. Well, we are here to tell you that the ’07 Versa would like to be the exception to that thought.

Martin, A Dance with Dragons Books are an incredibly useful tool that I think often don’t get the credit they deserve since the boom of the internet.

Americans….we as a population are over eager to spend every hard earned dollar we earn on some useless, over-advertised, faux holiday celebration (especially if said celebration is fueled by candy and sugar).

I’m going to start off with a little anecdote: Years ago (before Mrs. RRR and I married, and long before either of us had ever heard of FIRE or even considered early-retirement a thing) I trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and competed in a few tournaments.
