Thank You. I will stay positive and motivated to transition back into a working life!
Love the interesting thought as it make the decisions a little less "final" to know that change will continue to happen, no matter what we choose!

I am curious if you will put your motorcycle travel on your resume
I understand companies don't like to see a gap
And i wonder if your travels and exittus from the normal world will help you or hurt you trying to find a job
Cuz i will be there one day

At this point, I plan on putting something about the "gap" of paid employment, but depending on the positions determine how to word and frame this. I certainly will not shy away from how Caring for my wife for 5 years, then the RTW ride, took skills, and challenged me to learn and grow in ways that will benefit the work that I do.

Don't think about it right now...... Just keep riding!

Personally I would think that any employer would evaluate this time spent traveling the world as invaluable. Being that I have been following both of you Mark and Ed. It takes an out of the box thinker, intuition, compassion, grit and adaptability to travel the world leaving all your support network, language, culture behind. That you finished your journey on your terms and not failure should tell an employer a bunch about your capabilities. Just my .02 cents worth.Still haven't figured out how to use spell check on this site. That was for you Ed.

Absolutley Mark should include his ride on his resume. I say this partly because Mark's ride is a little different than a jaunt up to Alaska. I would think any employer that discredit's this accomplishment is a person that you would not want to work with or for.

The ride itself is a perfect example of Marks ability for strategic planning, the ability to set goals and objectives, perseverance, overcoming adversity and multiple other attributes that I would think any employer would want in person. My opinion is any interview question that begins with "Give me an example of......" Mark could insert some experience from his ride.

Absolutely include the ride in the resume.

Just a suggestion, but on your resume you should consider yourself self employed, and reference your rr...

I would think a sabbatical is pretty easy to explain on a resume.
