Today, Paulina Combow joins us to discuss how she broke down the full time goal into bite size pieces. With an outline, a plan and a deadline in place she is targeting early Summer as her kick off date.

Along the way she is documenting the process with her own podcast “Nine Month Drive”. On the show Combow explores the possibilities of traveling with a camper, defending herself, finding wi-fi and booking gigs.
