In this episode: events, community, travel rewards, medidations, mini retirements, travel wins, and travel points.

This week we are back with friend of the pod Ginger to discuss a mixed bag of topics, such as attending FI events, travel rewards and companion passes, as well as the idea of a “mini” retirements and what that can look like while on the path to FI. However, this episode isn't titled "The Ultimate Random Show" for nothing, as we branch off in quite a few different directions as we cover those topics. As opposed to having us try and describe it for you, it may be best to go ahead and hit play so you can see for yourself!
