A True Test of Passive Income

What do I call a true test of passive income?  Those times when I travel and know that I won't be having internet access for several days in a row.  Well, starting in about 48 hours, I won't have internet access for 5 days.  I am leaving the snowy, gloomy Indianapolis weather behind and boarding a Royal Caribbean ship in Tampa, Florida with my wife and 6 kids.

We decided that rather than purchase Christmas presents for each other this year, we would take a cruise instead.  I have been looking forward to the time to get away from work, email, and any other responsibilities for awhile now.  Of course, while I am traveling, I will still be able to make some passive income.  I can't wait for the day that I make enough while gone to pay for the trip.

I can say, however, that the amount of income that I have made since starting in May of 2009 is paying for 2 and a half of us.  LOL!  The time will mostly be spent on the ship since we are going to leave Tampa, sail to Cozumel, Mexico and then go back to Tampa.  But that is OK.  I look forward to the sun and laying by the pool.

Anyway, I will be curious to see what kind of income I can make over the next week or so.  I am hoping that it continues to average about $2 per day so that I can report back when I return that I made over $10 while cruising on Caribbean.  We begin driving to Tampa in less than 20 hours so if you don't see a lot of response to comments just know that I am still busy packing.  I hope to come back refreshed and ready to tackle 2011.


  1. Have a great time! That's so great that your income has paid for two and a half of you - such a good way of looking at it. Hope you get some more income while you're away ;)

  2. Thanks, Ruth. I certainly plan on having a nice time relaxing. You be sure that you take some time now and again. I know you have been hitting it hard over the past few months.

  3. I'm jealous! Hope you have a great time on your vacation and come back to more money than you even anticipated. :)

  4. It would certainly be nice to come back to some decent earnings, but I will be happy just to get a little bit of sunshine.

  5. Cool, man. Have fun and please report back and let us know how the earnings hold up!

  6. Jared,
    I certainly will. It is 3:42 in the morning and I am getting ready to begin the drive to Tampa after a quick shower. I will post a report as soon as I get back and include today through Christmas day when we are driving home.

  7. Hope you are enjoying your vacation. Being up north in Ohio with all this snow, I am definitely jealous right now!

  8. Have a good time on your holiday!

  9. Tiffany,
    I did enjoy it and will probably write about it in a Hub. I will post the link when I have it done. Sorry about the snow, but I am now back home again in Indiana enjoying the snow with you.

    Thanks so much.
