  1. Fritz – great episode and thanks for including my question guys! So after the great sarcasm, it seems you’re answer is a clear “cabin life is amazing!”.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the ChooseFI crew!

  2. Francis’ website is mentioned at 35:17 “From the Bach Road.com” is what I heard, but I cannot seem to find a link in the show notes and my googling has produced nothing. Can you help?
