I’m looking for three or four guinea pigs for a project. I want to demonstrate how someone could step out of the rat race, liquidate their assets, and set off traveling the world. I’m looking for a reader who has already decided to dump it all and go, but who needs a little kick in the pants or some guidance. I want them to go public on this blog with their questions, needs, wants, fears, and confusion to be guided by me and our community of readers. I’m looking for someone with guts enough to ask questions, get advice, follow it, and send in status updates. We will help you step by step all the way through until you are set on your way or you decide to give it up.

I’ve said many times before that any person with a class-A passport can travel the world regardless of most any other factor. Now I want to prove it.

I tried to prove it myself back in 2009. I returned to the USA with virtually no money to my name and I saved enough to travel from a few months of manual, no-experience-or-education-required, work while drastically cutting the cost of my living expenses. I completed this project and said, “There, I showed you, anybody can do it.” But I don’t think anyone believed me. To be honest, I think I have too much experience with this lifestyle and mastered the project a little too easily for people who are just starting out have been adequately inspired.

I’m looking for a small group of people who are ready to either step into the traveler life or meet their demise trying live on this blog. We will document your progress step by step and offer advice and suggestions all along the way. We will coach you if you’re willing to play.

But I am going to say right now that it may not work out, this is an experiment, but I think we could all learn something from trying.

So if you’re interested in starting out traveling (not as a vacation but a lifestyle) and would like the guidance of this community, either comment on this page or send me an email through the form in the sidebar.
