Shortly after Glenn's 50th birthday, he and his wife, Bryn, quit their jobs and went traveling. They spent the first year seeing the amazing sights and sounds of their home country.
In 2013 they visited Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Mexico again. They moved back to Lake Chapala's large expat community in 2014 until they almost ran out of money. In 2015 they moved back to Texas. Glenn went back to work in Austin for two years until he finally vested in his pension plan, while Bryn walked dogs and experimented with recipes for their new vegan lifestyle. In 2017, at long last, Bryn was able to take her pension so they officially retired and moved back to Lake Chapala in Mexico!
Two years later they moved to Zacatecas. There they are enjoying the high desert, low rent, and getting more practice in Spanish as some of the very few gringos in town.
As of 2020 they have visited:
- Seven countries
- Forty-three states in the U.S.
- Eighteen states in Mexico
- Twenty-plus airports, from Fairbanks, AK to Newark, NJ to San Jose, Costa Rica
