I did have a house and a spouse; still have the modest, paid-for house. Didn't take up sponging until I was about 52 but at least now I have the freedom to hit the surf when there is some to hit.
I like a roof over my head, and at 57, I guess I'm a bit old for a cross-continent surfing road trip, but those of you who want it and are young enough to enjoy it should go for it. I'll tell you one thing, the older you get, the faster time goes by.

its all a matter of personal taste. Did the vagabond thing for a bit and it was fun at the time. Now, i would prefer to roll in comfort in a high-end RV.

You know what else is awesome, tacos. PJB, I think you should amend you list to include tacos. And 70's droopy bottom bikinis.

I love both, but I'm a quesadilla man personally.

So go for it NOW. Because you can't help aging... or needing money... and you can't help who you fall in love with. Those things just HAPPEN to you. And when they do, you'll look back... and here's the "theater of the absurd" part of it... you STILL WANT TO DO IT! That never goes away. Only now, you're too old and committed, and if you have any integrity at all, you don't just up and bail on people who you committed to and need you for selfish reasons like, "I just want an adventure."
Do it NOW. Pack your boards, (you do have boards, right?) and all the cash you got, and don't freak'n snapchat every second of it like anybody else cares. You're doing this for YOU, aren't you? Or are you? Take a few pics for yourself, if you feel you have to. And don't act like it's your life's work, because it aint. 'Cause like I said, people who do, don't talk about it.
