    Just discovered your blog, J and I’m loving it. What a great story and inspiration. I’m still digging out of the debt hole but I’m on a plan to get my net worth to a positive number by May 23, 2012 (fingers crossed).

    Seeing you’re also a USAA man really put the cherry on the cake. Congrats on a great honor and thanks for the blog!
