Article for those of you that want to take a yr off
Sorry I couldn't get the actual article but I read it at the gym and recommend it. Talks about the journeys of several guys that took a year off and/or retired early and the experiences. Most left to go abroad. Talks a lot about the mentality pre-trip and post-trip. I would reco this one for anyone contemplating the idea. Also includes about 8 web sites full of solid resources for planning. It is largely about guys but it can apply to ladies as well and even the dogs that post on the fourm.
