β€œThe 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. β€œ

              ~ Chris McCandless as quoted by Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

After selling our home and all possessions not cherished enough to merit taking up space in a 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.

We have been settled back in Austin since 2016 and are ready to again embark on extended new adventures… this time on new shores. See “Europe 2023” tab.
