Because

I have a very understanding spouse. This year will mark the 4th year in a row that I get an extended bike trip.

I'm secure in my employment, get up to 5 weeks off per year (3 Weeks Vaca, and usually a couple of weeks Lieu time) and make a good salary.

My wife understands my need for Adrenaline and Adventure. I left my position as a Full-Time Paramedic and don't get the excitement I used to. I just have to balance my trip time with her work schedule and her vacation requests.

I usually come home happier than when I left and I'm much more pleasant to be around. Its also good to spend some time apart....

I hope to retire in another 15 or so years and be able to get a lot more time exploring... (I'm 36 now)
