One of the largest contributors to fishy accounting and sub-optimal financial decision making is debt.  This applies to all kinds of debt and whether or not you consider it to be “good debt”. I’m not here to answer the endlessly debated question of whether or not to pay a mortgage off early (spoiler: probably not), […] ...

Now that we’ve been on the road for a full month, its time to take a look at how much full time travel is costing us.  Neither of us have ever been away from home longer than a few weeks at a time, so crossing the one month mark is new territory.  And there are […] ...

As Becky and I travel around the country (and possibly beyond) during our gap year adventure, I plan to track every dollar we spend and share that information here on Money Metagame.  While we haven’t completed a full month on the road yet, I think it’s important to first take a look at the money […] ...

We’re currently sitting in Bakersfield, California after the second of many weeks to come on our Gap Year adventure.  Despite quitting our respective jobs in order to road trip across the country for an entire year, I’m not sure that significant life change has sunk in yet. If you know anything about this area of […] ...

I can’t believe we’re barely over a month into 2018!  Becky and I have been extremely busy over the past month traveling and preparing for our Gap Year adventure, but the trip has officially begun.  After a brief family trip to an all-inclusive resort in Cabo, we hit the road and are currently making our […] ...

Before Becky and I head out on our Gap Year Road Trip Adventure, we’ll first be taking a trip to the beaches of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico!  We had this trip planned before the gap year idea came into being and it will make for a nice precursor to hitting the road full time, […] ...

As of January 24th, neither of us is employed!  While this may seem troublesome to the average person, this has been our plan since the middle of last year when we decided to make a big transition into what we are calling a Gap Year. We’ll be utilizing our accumulated savings on the journey to […] ...

In less than a month, we will be embarking on our Gap Year road trip that will take us across a majority of the USA.  For the past couple of years, we’ve been able to cover the majority of our hotel stays using points earned from credit card signup bonuses.  This worked great when we […] ...

Our big adventure across the country begins in less than a month and there’s nothing that makes it more real than cutting off our main source of income.  We’ve been down to a single paycheck ever since Becky left her job last year, but our high savings rate means we didn’t really feel the impact […] ...

Goal setting is one of the most powerful tools I’ve found for achieving results in almost every aspect of life.  Having a specific objective is helpful when making decisions and tracking progress towards whatever it is you want to achieve in life. Unfortunately, I’ve found many people in the FI community with goals based around […] ...
