About Our Poker Pilgrimage

Our Pilgrimage

Welcome to our Poker Pilgrimage!

Our names are Paul and Heather. We are both avid poker players with a love for travel. Our dream is to spend a year traveling the country, seeing the sights, and visiting every decent poker room that we find along the way. A poker pilgrimage, if you may. Our current target date for this journey is 2022, the year when the youngest of our collective four children (two each from prior marriages) have departed for college and no longer need our doting presences in their daily lives.

In the meantime, we plan. We save money. We work on our game. And we play an awful lot of poker.

PokerPilgrims is where we will share our progress as we prepare financially and logistically for this year long trip, learn about casinos and card rooms across the country, plan our route, find accommodations, and solve the problems that arise when one plans to spend a year away from home .

A significant piece of our planning will be financial. We will share how we learn to live more frugally and generally spend less money so that we can save for our trip. We will also share our experiences learning about side hustles and other forms of income so that we can rely less on our primary income as we travel.

Of course once we begin our journey, we will share our experiences along the way.

So come back regularly to see what’s new as we work toward our Poker Pilgrimage!
