I realize this is an older post, but I have been thinking about the following comment, and wanted to add my 2 cents worth:
They are somewhat along the lines of the Terhorst's in the 'perpetual traveler' class.
24k/yr class of ER.
Yup, we do the PT because it suits our gypsy natures.*
We are also able to do all that travel without any deprivation, on $24K a year.* However, I get the sense sometimes, that people think we stay in bug infested hotel rooms, or that we have "given up" the idea of owning a home, or having the whole "white picket fence" scenario.
Or even that some are saying to themselves "I couldn't be that frugal, I want more outta my life, more comfort, more this or that."
So,... I would like to chime in and say, Ok, double that amount. Make it $48K a year. Or triple it, or do FIRE on somewhere in between.
The point is, that if we can do it comfortably and compatibly on 24K, you could do it on double the amount. What we offer in our book is a way to view your choices. Choices on lifestyle, housing, travel, spending, etc.*
