On March 13, 2007 I sat in a room at a real estate office in Minnesota and signed over the deed to my house. I handed the family that purchased my house the keys, they handed me a check and from that moment I was living out of a bag.
That is the day I’ve marked at the beginning of my travels.
I have a hard time believing it has been five years. It is half a decade. It is over 10% of my life.
When I started my journey, I told everyone that I would be gone for a year or so, but in reality I thought I might be gone for two.
I never, ever imagined that I would be doing this for five. Never.
