The Outside article appeared in September, shortly after the walk started. Gadling decided to wait and see what happened. When I hit the 68% mark, they decided they could pull the trigger. I like those little “OK, this guy isn’t just blowing a bunch of hot air” signals, they mean a lot to me.
Thank you Dave Seminara, nice article!
PS: There is a small error in the article. The article reverses the order of my divorce and then job quitting. The correct order is 1. divorce, then 2. quit job.
