Planning a Great Escape from the Normal-pocalypse


I absolutely love what I do.

I have a client right now who asked me to help plan the logistics for a great escape from the normal-pocalypse. They’re a lot like me, or at least like I was, which is even better.

  • Young family with several kids under the teen years
  • Stuck in a job that pays the bills but sucks the marrow from the soul
  • Experimenting with alternative educational methods for their kids

Their goals…

Move into a minimalist lifestyle

Transition to remote location work

Spend at least a year traveling North America by auto followed by a semi-nomadic lifestyle with frequent trips afterwards

Not be wealthy but have enough money to not worry about regular jobs unless they find something they want to do for a while

Right now we’re working through logistics on several fronts with a keen eye on affordability at every step.

  • Selling, gifting, or storing their belongings from the house to the kids’ toys
  • Outfitting an awesome road trip vehicle capable of transporting an entire family in relative comfort
  • Lining up remote work contracts and projects
  • Looking at places to visit on the road and the logistics of affordability with food, shelter, and fuel.

I gotta tell you, I’m having so much fun with this that I find myself planning a big trip for my own family.

If you could take a great escape for a year, where would you go? Would you roam or hunker down in one spot?

  1. Thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, followed by a thru-hike of the John Muir Trail, followed by a thru-hike of the CDT, PCT, SALT, Camino de Santiago….well, you get the idea.

  2. Nice! I just got through watching the Martin Sheen movie about the Camine. Could you imagine how much fun your treks would be with no time or money constraints?

  3. That’s how I heard about it! Reading “To the Field of Stars” by Kevin Codd. I’m also following the pilgrimage of a friends cousin who’s hiking it right now. One day….but after the AT. And yes, I’ve dreamed of that situation….for a long time.
