Stuff and Retirement:

This episode is an excerpt from the full show where Kathe was interviewed on the Hillbilly Nerd Talk Show, that originally aired on http://HillBillyNerdTalk.com

We Americans are tied to our STUFF.  We talked about Wendy Holt (episode 9) who moved to Costa Rica.  She gave up all her stuff, along with the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.
