Offpeakers in Machu Picchu, Peru

 

Hi, we are John and Terry.  Fast approaching fifty, we're you're typical American family...2 jobs, 2 cars, 2 kids, 2-hour commute, too little time together.  Always tired and sometimes grumpy. Once our kids were making their own life choices, we embraced change ourselves.  We started with the rather obvious but important discovery that we control our destiny and had the power to make rapid and important changes to our lifestyle.  Priorities to make the most of our time and opportunities.

Offpeakers are people who try to maximize the value, enjoyment and utility of life while minimizing the hassles, expense, annoyances, and waste.  We minimized our belongings, sold our house, quit our jobs, and headed west. Unloading our Uhaul trailer in Dad's barn, we took off on a 5 month tour of Central and South America.  

Currently we are enjoying a long road trip of the Good Old USA (we love it more than ever now!) incorporating exciting House Sitting opportunities.   We want to use the forum to document our adventures, share stories with friends, and maybe even inspire people in the same manner we were inspired by our favorite writer, blogger, and internet oracle, Mr. Money Mustache (if you are new to Mustache, please take the time to check him out!).  

We enjoy travel, home improvement, cooking, healthy living, and time with friends old and new.  We will share our continuing saga as we start community college and further the pursuit of our dreams.  

Everyone has a story and a passion.  You are welcome to join our journey.
