America the beautiful becomes a place of sights, foods, people, memories, and a little wisdom.After fifty-two combined years in the corporate fast lane, Marilyn Abraham and her husband, Sandy MacGregor, embarked on an adventure that every work-driven professional dreams about but hardly ever has the courage to realize.

For almost a year, the couple traveled nearly 20,000 miles to thirty-one states, including Washington, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Tennessee, and through seven Canadian provinces to Alaska, in the hulking RV they named Sue.More than just a travelogue, First We Quit Our Jobs is the story of recreating one’s life and discovering what is real, what is true, and what is important.
