We leave TOMORROW!!
I'm stoked to get out on the road.
As you can imagine, a trip like this takes a phenomenal amount of planning and preparation (and lists, lots of lists). We started about a year and a half ago, with the general idea, which I presented to the administration when I applied for my sabbatical from teaching in the Fall of 2015. Karin and I have been getting ready ever since.
This past weekend, we dropped off our cat to a friend for cat sitting. Yesterday, we dropped off our parrot to a parrot sitter. I was a bit worried about that, but the bird seemed to really like being around a lot of other parrots. Our two dogs, Patch and Sophie will be coming with us (after they get a bath :-) As all the other animals disappear and things get loaded, these two look more and more nervous...
We spent yesterday loading clothes, tools, and general stuff. I updated the Rig Page with more detail (for those of you interested in camping in trailers). I also created a Bad Environmental Joke Page and a Sage Advice Page. I'm particularly looking for folks to post environmental jokes if you have some. I want to make a collection.
Yesterday, the Wandering Environmentalist Blog hit a milestone, passing by 1,000 page views! Thanks for sharing this experience with us!
