This is a series of posts that will document our decision to embark on this crazy adventure. In this first part, I will cover the very basic elements of our plans. As of today (January 22nd, 2011), we do not have definite plans. This is merely a rough idea of our plans.
The short version
We’re selling, recycling, or donating almost all of our possessions, buying an RV, and taking our three kids on an open-ended journey around the country.
The slightly longer version
We will be meandering around the country seeking out new adventures, exploring, and meeting new people. Part of our journey will be spent promoting barefoot running… it’s one of my passions. The rest of the adventure will be spent finding interesting things for our family to experience.
Tentatively, I plan on seeking out adventures based on our interests: running (barefoot or otherwise), other outdoor sports, photography, crosstraining (like Crossfit or KemmeFitness), cooking, homeschooling, learning about green technology, visiting wineries and breweries, learning about RVing, etc. I will also spend time promoting my book at various running stores, bookstores, or other such locations.
As I mentioned, the trip is open-ended. We don’t necessarily know where we’ll go, when we’ll go there, or when the trip will end. We’re not much for planning, and it adds to the sense of adventure.
In the next few posts, I’ll discuss our motivations for this radical change in lifestyle. Stay tuned!
