On May 1, 2024, I’ll be retiring from my programming job of 25 years with UCHealth. Including other prior jobs, that will be approximately 30 years of sitting in front of a computer screen. Holy sweet awesomeness am I ever excited to start a new adventure!
With all those years doing the same type of work, I thought it would be a great idea to start off by accomplishing a goal I had long ago planned. In 1993 while still in college, I decided I was going to bike across the USA after graduating in 1995. Graduation came with the reality of how much college debt I had accrued, and I regrettably decided to let that dream go and follow the rest of the pack out into the workforce.
June 2024, I will be reawakening my dream and making it come true!
Starting anew. Fresh.
This year I’ll be purchasing a cargo van and building it out to a camper van. When I retire next year I’ll be selling the house, bike across the USA, and then start living the nomadic van life.
I have so much more to say on each one of these topics, but that will be for future posts. It’s such an overwhelming great change that I’m taking it all in small chunks as I learn as I go. I’m excited to share it with all of you and hope you’ll ride shotgun with me.
