FAQ about the Year Long Adventure
Q: Are you going to sell your house and buy an RV?
A: No, we plan to make frequent stops back home, and we’ll want a place to return to when the Adventure ends. We plan on utilizing a mixture of camping, hotels, and apartment/house rentals while we are traveling.
Q: Did you say camping? Did Jennifer agree to this?
A: Reluctantly, yes. She is not looking forward to this part of the Adventure.
Q: What about school?
A: We feel that traveling across the country and seeing it all will be an incredible educational opportunity, but Jennifer will also homeschool the kids throughout the year.
Q: How are you going to fit all the things you’ll need in your minivan?
A: We plan to pack lightly and strategically. (Notice I said “plan”. This will be quite challenging, and we haven’t done a practice run yet. We have been known to fill up our Expedition for a two night stay at the lake.) An X-Cargo has been purchased and will surely be stuffed to capacity.
Q: Where are you going first?
A: We will be heading to the Pacific Northwest. The first trip will take us through 13 states: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico.
Q: Are you guys crazy?
A: That remains to be seen. Check back in with us to find out.
Q: How can we keep in touch?
A: So glad you asked. We will have access to email, and will be on Facebook and Twitter. You can also follow our adventure here on our blog at www.yearlongadventure.wordpress.com
