We packed up the kids, dog and the trailer and headed out for adventure, learning and helping others. During our adventure we will try to update this site as often as possible to keep everyone interested involved in our travels and to keep a journal for ourselves. The plan is to be working, schooling, helping and sharing on the road for a year.
Please feel free to post comments and questions! Thanks for following!

What's the Opposite of Storm Chasing?
We decided to get on the road as soon as possible this morning unsure what the day would hold and wanting to get about five hours down the road (and inland). We had a quick cereal breakfast and got all disconnected from services pretty quickly. When we were just about ready to hop in the Yukon and take off, Brock noticed that a bolt was loose on the swing-arm bracket for the load leveling bars. We thought with all the bumps we've gone over and corners we've turned over the last 7000 miles(!!), it would probably be a good idea to check those periodically. Gratefully, we tightened them up and then had a remarkably uneventful drive with only a few minutes of very light rain and only a little wind the rest of the day.
We saw our first real drawbridge this morning as we were stopped at the crossing bars and watched a little boat go through.
We saw fields of cotton.
We are grateful for God's guidance and protection on this trip so far!
