How I do it?
I am currently a part time middle school teacher. I make $&/? for pay so I make sacrifices like riding a ninja 250 that has cheap parts, is cheap to maintain and gets 60+ mpg.
Right now I am sitting in a cheap apartment with no heat, I wash my laundry at work, I eat lots of sandwiches and I work two other jobs outside of teaching.
Am I complaining? Nope. I love teaching and coaching, I have what I need and I get summers off to ride my motorcycle wherever, whenever I want to.
I'm 29 and know that I need to do this now because the future, god willing, may have a wife and kids in the picture and riding that little ninjette for weeks on end in the middle of nowhere may be hard to come by.
