J. R. R. Tolkien said it best, “Not all those who wander, are lost.”

To date, Eric has accumulated over 5,375 stays in Marriott brand hotels, earned over 6.6 million Marriott points, and stayed in over 131 cities with Marriott, placing him at the very pinnacle of their customer base.

Eric earns over one million airline miles, hotel points, car rental points, credit card rebates and credit card bonuses per year. In addition, he uses arbitrage to earn free food worth many thousands of dollars.

Crypto Currency

In our first epoch of currency we bartered for those goods and services we desired. During the second epoch of currency, we traded gold and silver for those same things. In the third currency epoch, we began using paper chits, which we made worthless by printing ever more paper. The fourth currency epoch is now beginning. Where will you stand?
