About Joe Omundson

Hey there, thanks for visiting my Patreon page!

I am a writer on Medium, where I create articles about topics including spirituality, travel, and frugal lifestyles.

I started blogging in 2014 as I was quitting my engineering job to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Hiking for seven months changed my life, and instead of returning to engineering I started living in vehicles, eliminating most of my living expenses so I could spend my time doing what mattered to me.

Now that I was free to choose a new life path, I had to figure out what that was, and every time I analyzed it I landed on writing. I could travel all I wanted, follow my curiosity, and all the interesting experiences would directly fuel my work, which I could do from anywhere.

I want to devote my life to understanding as much as I can about the world and sharing my most important discoveries. I'm particularly interested in environmentalism, economic justice, and the effects of religion on society.

Any amount you can give helps me greatly because my expenses are small. I have recurring expenses (cell phone, auto insurance, etc.) of about $110/month. Beyond that, my biggest expenses are food and diesel. I can survive on a total of $300/month if I stay in one place, but I want to be free to explore and also save money for repairs and emergencies, so I'd like to shoot for at least $800/month.

Thank you very much for your time and generosity! I look forward to sharing more with you.
Joe
Goals
$25.18 of $300 per month
With $300/month, I will have my bare minimum needs met: all of my monthly utilities and food costs. No matter what else happens, I'll have an internet connection and food in my stomach, so I can keep writing articles for you to enjoy.
