Are We There Yet?

…And when I say “there,” I mean on the road. It feels like we’ve been talkin’ bout this thing forever, and now it’s finally happening and we can all just stop freaking out about it…mom and dad.

Lindsey and I left from San Diego on Monday and got to Stef’s house in Seattle this morning (Wednesday?). We had a crazy day, running on small amounts of sleep and large amounts of excitement. We learned how to change tires, made a few trips to REI for last minute buys and exchanges (check out their trusting return policy, by the way), ate ethiopian food, packed our 30 pound loads (a piece), went to the lake, and rode about 7-10 miles around Seattle, and all before sundown…of course the sun sets way past my bedtime in this state. But I must say today went well.

Tomorrow we leave at 6:00am, and the journey really begins. Make sure you all check in for stories and picture along the way. Thanks again to everyone who has been helping us out, and…uh…we’re still accepting (coughing noises) donations.


This is called a wheel

Nice shot o’ Linds, gettin to ride.
