About the Trip

It occurs to me that people might not know what's going on when they come to this site. So I figured I'd write a little something that explains our plans the sites purpose.

Richard and I both had reached a point in our jobs, for various reasons, where we felt it was time to part ways and move on. Both of us having missed out on the past opportunity to take a cross-country road trip after college, we started giving this some thought.

As we started to firm up plans of leaving our jobs, we realized that we had the perfect opportunity to pack our lives in a backpack and head out on this trip that past us by years ago. This web site's is designed to be one of the only significant ties back to our lives at home. It allows friends and family us along our sojourn around this country.

Take a look around and stay awhile. More importantly, come back often to check for updates, pictures, and videos of our journey.

  • Car: 2008 Mazda3 Hatchback
  • Date Beginning: April 15th 2008
