In 1998, we were stuck behind desk jobs we didn't like … and we were miserable. So we quit. We tossed out business suits for bathing suits, got our wisdom teeth pulled while we still had coverage and signed up for every credit card we could. On the same day, within ten minutes of each other, we walked out of our jobs, grabbed a drink and started chasing the American Dream. Twenty years in and some things have changed, but we're the same at our core. We're still having a ton of fun, hanging with Real Good People, and sharing the gift of the Vineyard with everyone we can.
