What I Learned From A Homeless Man

My wife and I are driving a 21 foot Class B van from Canada to Argentina. 

We recently spent a couple of weeks with a homeless man in California. We camped with him in the desert for almost a week. 

His name is Casey Coleman.

He taught us more than we could ever teach him. His lifestyle might not appeal to you.

But I promise…there’s plenty that he can teach every one of us – especially those of us that would like to save some money.

    Casey really has life figured out! Has anyone read Mr. Money Mustache? He’s a pretty famous blogger and right up Andrew’s alley when it comes to learning to live healthily and cheaply. Would be cool to have a recorded chat between Andrew and MMM.
