  1. This was tons of fun. Most impressive, by far, was Cody’s demeanor, composure, and the way he’s taking dead aim at achieving FI by his mid-to-late twenties.

    I just checked out Arsenal Discs, too. Love how you can buy the less-than-perfect discs at a discount. They’re labeled as “misfires” and “shrapnel.” Awesome.

    It was great to see you all, and I look forward to a similarly enjoyable weekend in Minnesota this August.


  2. It was super cool to be there for the live recording of this. If anyone is considering going to a Camp FI or other similar event in the future, I would say 100% do it! Even if you feel like you have nothing to learn, it’s a fantastic experience getting to be with your “tribe” in person and we had a blast.

  3. Hey – thanks for having us on the Podcast – and for making the event happen this year – we’ll let you know when we make our final decisions on this!
