This is the story about an idea. We thought it was a crazy idea when we saw this photosad $1,000 RV for sale: we'd buy it, fix it up, make it self-sufficient, sell or give away all of our posessions, and live in the wilds. A crazy idea to step away from the fake problems of this rat race we're recruited into. Perhaps even a stupid idea.

But with the economy going down and taking gas prices with it, we decided that sometimes crazy ideas have a way of balancing out in the end. So we've sold photoour cars and invested the cash into our RV and photothe equipment that would make it work.

This is a story about making our way under spacious skies. About finding our own manifest destiny.

Our own U.S. adventure.

Travel Log

April 15, 2009
All of our equipment is installed and tested: photosatellite, modem, photosolar panels, photo generator, holding tanks, water pump, refrigerator, heat furnace, water heater, new tires, a scooter rack, and, of course, the photoscooter. We've got our hoses, gas treatment (for ethanol gas), gas cans, tools, storage bins, backpacks, and compass. We've changed our tags, licenses, and addresses. We've got the maps. We've got a full tank of gas, a touch of butterflies, and a twitchy pedal foot. Awaiting Sunday, our decided launch date.
