Youtube Channel:

Matt D’Avella


I like this channel because the videos are well-lit and appropriately short (here’s a tip, if you’re watching an informational Youtube video and you can’t STAND how slow the person talks, click the gear icon on the video and change the speed to 1.5x, problem solved!). You may not be a fan of the minimalism movement but many of the tenets fall in line with those of the FIRE community. Some of the videos have very thought-provoking concepts. Give his short video series a look.

Yosemite Backpacking Trip: How to Backpack Yosemite National Park


If you like to go backpacking, hiking, or camping, this video checks off all those items. My family loves this stuff and I believe our ideal future includes a LOT of outdoors activity whether FIRE’d or not.

Millennial Revolution


I don’t agree with everything on their website but I love the attitude in their posts, the stories, and the travel advice. Their backgrounds gave these guys a leg up on the average person for reaching FIRE but the information there is still great!
