A huge week
« on: April 04, 2015, 02:19:34 PM »
My wife and I have been working on repatriating to the United States from Africa for the past 8 months. Everything came together within the past week.

Last weekend - received job offers from 6 different employers for my wife and I. We were spoiled for choice.

Tuesday - Accepted offers with combined gross of $199k, up from $113k this year. Savings will skyrocket.

Wednesday - sold our truck for $500 more than I expected to get.

Friday - Used some of the truck money to pay off the last of my $55k student loan debt.

We're now debt free with two extremely awesome jobs waiting for us in the US when we arrive in June.

It's been a good week!

Congrats!  Good luck with the transition, and the culture shock reassimilating.  ;)
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with three kids.
If you want to know more about us, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out our Now page to see what we're up to currently.
