Welcome to my pursuit of being able to travel year round rent free.

If you want me to feature your resort in my blog message me.

All I ask for is a week stay. I’ll even stay for the sales presentation.

Anticipated Rentals

About



I am a blue collar worker. I made my living as baker for 10 years and then an automotive painter for many years until suffering a massive heart attack that took everything away from me. It has been 10 years since my last heart attack, yes I had multiples over a few years.  Now I work nights at a major Do-It Yourself Home Store and watch my granddaughter during the day to help out my daughter.

Many years ago I purchased into Worldmark and took my family on many amazing vacations every year. If my kids did chores without being asked they got to put a destination into the bowl and when we went on vacation I chose one out of the bowl. I fell in love with the points system and all of the things I could do with it.

The heart attack bankrupted me but I owned Worldmark free and clear and since I was chapter 13 and paid everyone back, I was supposed to keep my timeshare. But I had a derelict attorney and he just gave it back for a tax loss.

I learned many life lessons through all of this and also realized that purchasing timeshares directly is the absolute wrong thing to do. There is so many people who don’t take the time to learn how to use their timeshare they are willing to give them away or sell at a steep discount.

I decided to create this blog about how I plan to get my travel back on and this time on a even smaller budget. I am even hoping to make a little money at it.
