In a YearJanuary 17th, 2012 | Posted by in About
In a year we will have departed the country in an unplanned, unlimited adventure. Critic Arthur Compton-Rickett characterized our type as having “a vagrant strain in the blood, a natural inquisitiveness about the world beyond their doors,” and I must admit that it seems quite fitting (less the beggar connotation). Perhaps we will be gone for 2 weeks, or perhaps we will be gone for 2 years. Our goals do not include making it to a specific place or having money left or wearing clean clothes or sleeping in beds, and the only failure for us would be not to follow this dream, not to have started this blog, not to head for the world beyond our doors.
In the meantime, we have a lot of preparing to do which we will document in detail. This, we hope, will not only keep our friends and families involved, in the loop, and sane, but also provide a resource to other wanderers itching to get started.
