This left me with a decision: have a rewarding job that pays about half of my cushy government contracting salary or continue on as I was. I chose the former, took the paycut, and I have not regretted it even for a moment.
Given the choice between more money and lots of possessions and less money and less possessions, I would always go for less. I would definitely find it hard at first, given that I have 2 bikes with a third bike planned to be built up next year.Could I survive on one bike? Probably yes, but I would so miss having the option of having a different bikes to ride.
