Hey greenbored —

Congratulations! Can't wait to hear about your travels. What was the reaction of your employers? Did you ask for a leave? Or were you planning a career change regardless?

thanks guys.
my bosses and co-workers were very supportive and happy for me. most of them expressed jealousy and regret for not doing something similar when they were younger. it made me feel a lot better.
regarding a leave of absence, but i told them that i would love to come back if the opportunity ever presented itself. they said that if there was a postition open they would happily hire me back. i do like what i do, but i didn't push to hard for a leave just to keep my options open. i'm glade we're leaving on good terms though.
my wife, however, did get a leave...which is awesome because she absolutley loves her job. actually, she got better than a leave. she gave her notice, and then her boss told her about a week later that she was set to be promoted. my wife was kinda bummed because this new position is like her dream job. then a couple weeks later her boss basically said that she couldn't see anyone else in that position other than my wife, so they are giving her a leave and hiring her back at that new level.
stoked!
