Good News!



I quit this trash job.

My stoicism ran out. I got stonewalled too much.

Being stoic is energy intensive when there are better options. Most of the energy is preventing the mind wandering to a better option.

Yes, they are.

I have been employed or in school for years back to back.

Has anyone here read rich dad poor dad? My dad was just like the poor dad.

I had a large sense of interpersonal value from working.

I look forward to a period of far less work. This will keep it interesting.

A hurdle that makes ERE difficult for me to adapt to is the fact that I minimize my own personal contribution through my interests.

In the Mormon monoculture, certain interests are seen as non-industrious. Self employment is one of those. The religion relied on codepencency.

In breaking that conditioning, I find it much easier to produce things that are extreme in content. This is why Buttmushroom is the key to all of this.

You have no choice.

That is what I have seen now after witnessing the Gervais principle firsthand at work.


A low level sociopath did indeed get promoted over me by a higher level sociopath.

I have been in the clueless category, a useful idiot.

I quit work once I witnessed this play out.

Also, my boss became violent with me.

Some other observations:

I see a lot of nomadicism in these decisions. To reduce costs, things are constantly fluctuating.

Terrain is moving underfoot.

A big change for me is minaturization.

I preferred tools before that were big, with big components, easy to fix, etc.

A good example of this is my Toyota Pickup truck. It is in the crosshairs for selling.

(If you would have told me 3 months ago that I would be selling it then, i would have not believed you.)

It is really easy for me to repair. But with ere, it makes more sense to live in an office or something.


It's getting to the point in my life where in order to optimize, I have to be so light I am living in a backpack, and moving around on a bicycle.

I am readapting my map to accomodate for modern, superlight minaturized equipment.

This is really a personality change in me.

As a child I had trauma happen to me which caused resentment.

As a child, having a lot of resentment and being small meant for me I was attached to big hammer like strong solutions to hide my weaknesses.

A child is not very good at determining what his weaknesses are. I have determined what my biggest weaknesses are now, and they are a lot different.

I am forming new identity every day.

So instead of a Toughbook 19, these smaller mobile phone options make sense. 'they can be placed in a plastic bag for waterproofing, especially if i do the canal canoe life.

Way less power drain as well. that is a big problem for me, power drain.

I am looking into the CutiePi for learning electronics through. It is small and extremely capable.

Focus on high efficiency and low carrying cost. This supports being between jobs as long as possible/ greater amount of personal time.

Good on you for quitting the job. Didn’t sound like a healthy environment. Do you have any concrete plans for the immediate future before your bike travels?

Der Leiermann,

One of my current plans is I am purchasing a Brompton on Monday.

It's hands down the best bicycle there is for urban space utilization.

I need to understand how to use urban/semi urban spaces. A bicycle that I can climb with makes that more of a possibility.

It's about the stealth camping.

I am reducing the items I own down to a small backpack worth. Clothes, Documents, Computers all fitting into a much smalller space.

I wouldn't recommend a Brompton for cycle touring/bikepacking etc. As cool as they are, the advantages of folding up are far outweighed by the negatives. A solid rigid commuter/gravel/MTB that looks non-descript will get you places easier, draw less attention, and cost way less to maintain or replace when the time comes.

2birds1stone is correct, there are dozens of bikes that are far better than Bromptons for bike touring/bikepacking.

It seems like there continues to be "scope creep" in your plans... At this point, I'd suggest just doing rather than thinking. You think you might like bike touring? Get a cheaper bike and just go. Forget all the so-called "necessities" and follow the sun. Restaurants/libraries/cafes to charge up whatever electronics you bring, simple tent, pannier or two worth of stuff.

Worst case, you get a month in and decide it's not for you, then you change direction. It doesn't sound like you have anything holding you back, except maybe the desire to have a perfect road map of how everything will go... And that will never happen.

Good luck!

The Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people wrongly overestimate their knowledge or ability in a specific area. This tends to occur because a lack of self-awareness prevents them from accurately assessing their own skills.

That's why it looks incongruent/ many scopes here. I write honest stream of consciousness into my journal on the site, because I don't feel like it is honest to portray things looking better than they are.

I just am not as smart or skilled as I think I am. So I will display the folly as reality here.
