Stephen Pepper has just joined the Frequent Miler team as a part time Quick Deal author. Given that Nick is about to become a father, there was no doubt that we could use the help. And, hopefully the additional revenue from this part time position will help Stephen and his wife (and their adorable dog) with their incredible road trip. They plan to spend the next 5 years visiting all 50 US states.
5 years should give the trio plenty of time to explore each state in-depth. Stephen writes:
That’d give us an average of five weeks in each state, spending less time in smaller states (sorry Rhode Island) and more time in larger states (hellooooooo California).
And they plan to use points & miles to help make it all possible. Stephen writes:
In 2014, I’d started learning about airline miles and hotel point reward schemes. We’d been avidly collecting miles and points so we could travel for free and I’d been learning as much as I could about how to make those points go even further.
Based on how much we were earning through my other websites and how we could maximize our points for free hotel stays, we realized this long-held dream of an epic 50 state road trip was actually possible.
Stephen will be documenting his road trip on his own blog: No Home Just Roam. Visit the site and sign up for emails to keep up to date with his journey. Or, if you’d like to see Stephen’s Frequent Miler posts, this link will take you there: thefrequentmiler.com/author/stephenp/.
Please join me in welcoming Stephen to the team!
