Exit From Corporate America

Hi, I’m Greg Rodgers from Lexington, Kentucky! I know firsthand how tough quitting a corporate job and preparing for full-time travel can be. I had to hack my way through without much help when I resigned at IBM and began a new life. Getting some live advice from a friendly human is infinitely more valuable than reading information online. Leaving Corporate America to go live and work in exciting (often tropical) locations is the best decision I ever made, and I urge you to consider giving it a try!

My mission is to help others escape and experience the same transformation I did through extensive world travel. Click below to be taken to my Science of Escape site.

Why Go Vagabonding?

I believe that long-term, independent travel is a powerful tool for self-growth and happiness. Anyone can benefit from extensive world travel — it isn’t as expensive as you think.

Living and working remotely as a digital nomad isn’t for everyone, but if you feel as if you were forced into a conventional life to chase the “American Dream,” independent travel and adventure are one possible path to renewed health and happiness.

The brain benefits of long-term travel are many!



About Me

After some time in the US Army and eight years working as a network engineer for IBM, I knew that I preferred to live an adventurous life rather than focus on collecting material things. I exited Corporate America in 2005 and began a new life of vagabonding travel.

Today, I write, edit, freelance, and coach others to escape and chase their adventure dreams. I love my life of travel! Click below to visit

A Few Sample Adventures

I have been trekking and climbing in the Himalayas alone. In 2016, I narrowly survived a blizzard.

I ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain! I learned a life lesson and cracked a rib (that wasn’t part of the lesson).

I trained as a Forward Observer in the U.S. Army. I enjoy survival challenges and have been tested in tough conditions all over the world.
