"A good portion of that value can come back if we curtail the spending of any more principal or at least slow it down quite a bit."
In my mind this is the most important sentence you typed in the entire report. Try to keep the number of shares you own from decreasing.The market will price them extremely differently from year to year, but if you do not need to liquidate, that becomes of little concern.
Enjoy your work camping experience in Ca and best of luck to both of you.

Thanks for sharing all this information. It's great to see that I don't have to have a million bucks in an account before I start my 2nd life.

As I was reading your Journal from start to finish, I always felt like I could just warn you of the impending market collaspe. I wanted to yell at you SELL SELL! It actually caused me some anxiety as I never read ahead and was worried for your future. But as always, your great attitude and plans have you well grounded and ready to take on any challenge!

Terrific work!

Thanks for detailing all of your finances. It does help to decide when we can start fulltiming.

I'm sure you get a little nervous posting such detailed info about your life. However, you need to know it is much appreciated by those of us who plan to become full-timers also. We will be on the road as soon as the house sells. Your budget info has helped me realize a couple of items I forgot in our proposed budget, but it also tells me that I am very close to having prepared a realistic budget and full-timing will become a reality iin the near future.

thanks so much for sharing this.
we are fulltimes that workamp in the summer and spend winters in mexico.
due to the recent downturn we will not be going to mexico this winter and will be workamping. it was uplifting to know we are not alone. we are now actually looking forward to some new adventures
thanks again
