We just wanted to say thank you for your inspirational web site and your E-book, The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement! My wife Sonia and I discovered them about two months ago and it really spoke to us. After analyzing our finances and some considerable discussion on what was really important to us, we knew this lifestyle was for us. I am in the military and we should be able to start our adventure in a little over 5 years. It seems like a common occurrence, but not everyone around us understands what we are planning. In the military it is the unwritten rule that you get a second job after military retirement. They usually just look puzzled when I tell them I'm not going to get a job after the military, but I have been told, "You can't do that!" I just smiled and bet the guy a beer I could and would. I'm really looking forward to that beer :)

Thank you so much for the eye opener and sharing your inspirational story and pointers. We hope to get the opportunity to meet you one day...just to say thanks in person!

Sincerely, Charlie and Sonia Monk
