When Todd first proposed we do this trip, on a cold winter day over a beer, I thought he was crazy.

When I told my mom that we were going to do this trip, she thought I was crazy.

When I tell people now that we’re doing this trip, some of them stare with big eyes and I see thought bubbles “You are CRAZY”, others rave aloud: “Woah!  How cool!”

Bottom line, I know life is short, I want to stand up to the challenge and hold on tight for an awesome ride!  I have no idea what we will encounter on this trip and how far we will really get.  But, I know that as we ramble around while hopefully rambling with people, we will expand our minds.  Living comfortably in your safe secure environment will only get you out of your present thinking so much.

We also really love the outdoors.
