Austin Trip

So after being in Dallas for slightly over 6 years I decided to pay Austin a visit. Keep Austin weird is the motto. I didn’t get to see the whole place by any stretch, but here are a couple pictures.

Austin seems like a place I’d enjoy. It’s bike friendly, clean, more culture, and variety….However it’s way more expensive than North Dallas, particularly if I ever were to decide to purchase a house. Plus my friends and job are here…. šŸ˜€

The trip involved 2 tanks worth of premium fuel @ ~$80. I intentionally avoided toll roads. Meals netted out to about $100 thanks to friends treating me to a birthday dinner the first night. They also covered the cost of the airbnb which I believe have been about $90 total for the 2 nights we stayed.

I’m content at 34. Haven’t accomplished everything I wanted to yet. I certainly could stand to make some gains on the earnings side of the equation. Even if things aren’t perfect, there is a lot to be grateful for. I’m still in the top 1% of income earners in the world.

This week I just hit *1000* miles on my bikes since 2014. May not sound like a lot, but to me it’s huge. When I first moved to Dallas, things were so bad that I never imagined being able to afford a nice bike to have around. I was just treading water. A lot can change in a few years if you keep chipping away at things. Be well and live with passion!

    • Thanks yeah it was a blast. Always nice to see a place I haven’t been before, especially when there is a lot if offers. The student loans was just a huge burden that seemed to take way longer to eliminate than I thought. That is true, I still have time at 34. I guess there is a bit of FOMO going, plus my role models are people who are doing way better than I professionally…. Think of folks who are earning a few thousand a month or more through both YouTube and products / services they offer. Gotta dream big!!! šŸ˜€
