I was changed forever by the trip and the things that seemed important are not. I'm working on a plan to return an I'm guessing you'll do the same.

To hell with the Jones and all their crap.
Don't buy a house or new car = debt slavery.
Eat simple.
Buy ALOT less as having things does not bring happiness.
Save your $ and explore.
After this time away from the US, you'll be very aware of all the advertising onslaught you get when back.
Throw away the TV and be happy with your existing equipment.
If you do settle with a women make sure she's 100% on the same page or she will squash your dream.
Eakins reposting that Montanita post just had a big effct on me! Thx I had forgotten my own words.
