Re: RE put on hold..
That is a hard one!
I'm currently chomping at the bit to get out there, but DH is still working. We talk a lot about what if things don't come together as planned next year, then maybe he should just quit anyway and we'll travel while we still can (late 30s) and want to, then we'll go back if we need too ~ such a toss up.
Have you ever read any of the boards at BootsnAll.com? There are lots of travelers there. Most just save enough to travel then go back to work (no ER in sight) but some are taking breaks from work to go.

I'm made of atoms, you're made of atoms, and we're all in this together. Ben Lee
