“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and
hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun. “

                                                                  ~Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

After selling our home and all possessions not cherished enough to merit taking up precious space in a rented 15×10 storage unit, we set out on May 21, 2014 in a brand new Ford Escape (the “Escape Mobile”) to explore the United States.

This blog chronicles the preparation for and adventures of the six-month journey ending November 15, 2014.

How we came to make such dramatic shifts in paradigms is another story in itself. (SEE BOOK TAB)

We are now permanently settled back in Austin, but travel often. See PHOTOS on Flickr from our more recent adventures!
