I wrote this post because of a moment I had tonight. But first… Recently I was reminded of how bad my long term memory is. My boy Joska (the first person I met in college), who I took a 6 month, 30+ state, 20,000+ mile road trip with was recounting memory after memory from ourContinue Reading

…And Hello. For those that like more pictures and are interested in this kind of stuff, we are trying to post a pic or more each day from parts of our journey. They usually aren’t from that day, just sometime along the road. To see those you can go here. Or just go to Daily PhotoContinue Reading

Since our New Years is happening around 7-10 hours sooner than most of our friends and family we thought we would have a Happy New Years toast with the boys before they went to bed.

  I always tell the boys to ‘end on a make’. As in, to end on making your last shot or whatever you are aiming at, doing at the time. A few days ago we ended our time in Praha on a make (and a timer shot thank you very much). A picnic overlooking theContinue Reading

After over a decade of imagining this reality, the reality isn’t quite what I ‘originally’ imagined. In the beginning there were no kids or dog. Which means no baby carrier, or traveling baby bed or a suitcase full of home schooling materials. No leaving the dog with family. About 60% less clothes. Eat anything youContinue Reading

One night over some drinks, a good friend asked me why I am making life so hard. Why not take a job and work 9 to 5? Wouldn’t it be nice to come home and not think about the job until the next day? Why travel with the family internationally for so long? Why putContinue Reading

How do you decide where to take a family of five on an adventure around the world? BufferContinue Reading
