    Would love to hear your feedback on this.

    I'm about to hit the road with my fiance. We leave one month from today, on our bicycles, to ride across the country to our wedding (4,000 miles holy shit!!!) Riding from San Francisco, down the coast to San Diego, then across the southern part of the country til we hit Louisiana, then up to Ohio!

    We'll be sending our computers to a family member who works in the same IM field as us, uses the same software, and is willing to babysit as we remote login from the road from our laptop.

    Most everything will be on autopilot as we travel, and we can login almost anywhere using wifi or tethering my iphone to our netbook.

    2 days after our wedding we're heading to thailand. We will travel SE asia for about 9 months until we have to come back to pacific NW (we've got renters in some properties and their lease is up March 2011- so we've gotta get em out and get more people in).

    Our goal is twofold- (1) to have enough money to sustain ourselves on $30-40 a day (we are very cheap travelers). (2) to continue IM to pull in AT LEAST $10-20 a day with minimal work. 10-20 a day is a small fraction of what i could make working the way i am now, i know. But it's really all we'll need to sustain ourselves while we travel. And I think it's impossible not to pull in that much. I honestly don't see any reason, unless the world explodes, that I can't make 10-20 bucks a day doing very little.

    We've been saving a lot, so the goal is not to get rich while we travel (though that would be sweet), but to sustain ourselves.

    Big picture is to explore SE Asia to find potential long term business opportunities, maybe office space, a team of really talented people, etc. Then live on the beach, go to sex shows, and eventually make babies.

    Anyone doing this now? Or did you try and it didn't work out? Let me know what you think!!

    (ps. this is not a "how do i make money???? please spoon feed me like a little baby" request.)

    why won't you just spend some more time saving up, and then you won't need any residual income. You can just use what you saved up. Then if you budget properly, you won't need any extra income.
    You can try doing some outsourcing for writing articles for websites(Associ*ated Con*tent.
    Also, wow that sounds amazing, have fun.

    It would be ideal to build my empire before leaving, but we decided that we are leaving when we're leaving, so whatever money we have will dictate our budget.

    The struggle will be part of the adventure :)

    Set up a nice outsourcing chain.
    1. Outsource a person to scrape articles from websites.
    2. Outsource a person to rewrite those articles.
    3. Outsource a person to edit and submit the articles.
    And try making it so that you actually gain profit via all this outsourcing, keep costs low.
    -You can use foreign peoples, or your cousin(niece/nephew, etc.), or next door neighbor.

    I would love to do something like that, but my travel target is Japan. I would love to stay there for a couple of months and meet some cool Japanese girl...
    Damn I got carried away dreaming too much LOL.
