how to take a road trip on a budget

This is a pretty darn simple website that I mostly copied, but I hope to add more about how to take a road trip on a budget Enjoy world!

Spend most of my free time teaching myself web dev for April and May 2014

At the end of May be able to decide whether or not I enjoy this and believe I can be good enough at it to make a living doing it/continue with formal classes or start applying for entry level positions.

Earn >= $1300 per month by May 1, 2014

I did earn $1,476.75 for March while spending -$836.78. So I saved about $639.97 this month. If I were able to do that every month I could afford an apartment. But I have a week off from subbing this month for Spring Break so I probably won’t make much this month. I guess I’ll try to learn as much as I can in my off time this week and in my spare time in the next 2 months to see if I can envision myself doing something in web development or with computers in general.

Listened to this on audio-book a while back, freakin’ hilarious.

Do 20 consecutive pull ups before March 1, 2014 (read all 3 entries…)

I did 19 and a half bicep pull ups March 9. Came close on this one. Good job past self. Shoulder is a little sore so may take it easy on pull ups for a while.

bench press 225 lbs.

After setting this goal at age 21, I accomplished it at age 28. Not bad for only weighing 140 lbs.

Be in a healthy committed relationship by Dec. 2014 (read all 2 entries…)

I give up. I’m just going to try and be as happy as I can by myself and hopefully move out and be able to support myself financially in the near future. If I meet someone organically awesome. I’m sick of online dating right now.

Do some form of exercise or stretching each day. Have 20 entries for the month of March (read all 7 entries…)
How did I do on my February goal?

It looks like I logged my workouts 14 of 28 days in February. Which actually isn’t too bad. But when you consider the goal was to do something everyday, 50% isn’t that great.

So this is a tough goal. It isn’t reasonable to expect to work out for over an 1 hour every day I don’t think. Every other day is a reasonable goal.

One thing I need to work on is not missing a lot of days in a row. I was under some stress this past week while training for a new job and did not work out at all. Not optimal.

So for March 8 – the end of March what is the goal for exercise?
From March 8 to the end of the month, log 20 exercises, physical activity, or stretching activities.

Become a Lead Guide
what is necessary?

What are that need to happen in order for this to occur… what would it look like?

-I take on more of a leadership role
-I have several go-to themes
-I get really fast at gearing people up and down.
-I have excellent customer service.
-I’m very confident on tour.
-I know the technical aspects of the tour in and out and can perform all rescue operations quickly and with confidence in under 4 minutes.
-I can multi-task and address the guest while setting them up to zip.
-I set a good pace on tour and know when to take pictures of guests, and I do a good job of taking pictures of guest.

Interpretive side of things:
-I know my content and I actually care about it.
-I’m able to be myself and interact comfortably with guest.
-I’m in control.
-I’m a good coach and know how to go through the basics of ground school… explain the platform traverse/hop, rappel stations, and give the tour introduction and conclusion.
- I have a conversational tone with guest and make the theme relevant to their interest. (stories, analogies, humor, colorful transitions, be able to identify mountains, universal themes… Thrill, educate and excite, People, Trees, Places.

Other thoughts for success:
1. Actually care about your job, your participants, your co-guides, managers, and the success and image of the company.

2. Seek mastery. Ask yourself what you are doing well and what you can do to improve every day.

3. Love your job. Make it enjoyable. Choose to enjoy it.

4. Try to be detailed oriented and think ahead.

5. Get to know co-workers.

6. Remember names and use them often.

7. Be proactive. Address things you aren’t comfortable with, problem solve, consider what you can do to improve your situation and take action.

Make plans every weekend (read all 5 entries…)

The weekend is coming up… so How about a plan. I think I will go hiking the weekend after next, but not much going on at the moment. I could: Call D, Call W, call S. Plan to pick up some firewood and maybe split it. Maybe go skiing? Pricey, but the time is right. I could go hike some random place – Montreat maybe. Whatever I do, I need to get out of the house. I wouldn’t mind to go meet someone for a beer. I could plan to read a book or write the content for a website. The possibilities are endless.
