Tom Dyson here. I’m honored to have you on board.

As you read this postcard, we’re probably on a long bus ride to some new city. Or in a cheap backpacker’s dorm, me studying economics, the kids doing their schoolwork. Or maybe we’re out wandering around town trying new foods…

In 2018, Kate (my ex-wife) and I sold all our things and handed back the keys to our apartments in Delray Beach, Florida. We drained our bank and savings accounts and converted everything to gold.

Now we live out of a small suitcase and explore the world’s cheapest countries, using Airbnb, studying economics, homeschooling our three young kids, and waiting for the Dow-to-Gold ratio to hit 5…

Oh, and we’re going to get married again soon and glue this family back together for good. Stay tuned!

I’ll be sending out a new postcard today at 7 p.m. E.T.

P.S. You’ll hear me talk a lot about the Dow-to-Gold ratio. If this is your first time reading about it, don’t worry. Catch up here.
