Example text

These people tend to upgrade before the majority of the population, and before it’s really necessary to upgrade. The Amish off the AT Nobody resists upgrading like the Amish. Although the AT doesn’t cross through the heart of Amish country, it gets pretty close. Andy, a business school friend of mine, grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We stayed with Andy and his family for a weekend and learned about the Amish people. The Amish are a prime example of people who have withheld adopting new technology.

Just like that. Similarly, those who hike the AT go cold turkey to get back to the basics. Thru-hikers, unlike most of the population, want to downgrade in a major way. As pilgrims, we neatly summarized our lives: eat; walk; sleep. When we returned from the AT, we reexamined our lives. All those “must have” upgrades no longer seemed necessary. If the thought of cutting back a little makes your stomach turn, then consider a more radical move by cutting back dramatically. I call it Returning to Base Camp—getting back to basics and learning to live a Spartan existence.

AT hikers agree that Maine and New Hampshire are the two most challenging states along the AT. Like New Hampshire, this chapter might be a bit tough to deal with for some people. Let’s sum up the key takeaways of this chapter: • To fully enjoy life you need the freedom to do what makes you happy. • Every dollar you spend diminishes your freedom; every dollar you invest increases your freedom. • Beware of summit fever, so you’re not exposed when a financial storm comes. • When you raise your standard of living, you pass a point of no return, so do it judiciously.
