East Coast Route for April - May - June

Mapping our route isn't as easy as it might seem. We have specific organizations we want to volunteer with, we have friends we would love to see, we have cost figures to consider, and we have campgrounds to reserve.

On The Map: February & March 2011

"Have you mapped your entire route and planned all of your projects for the whole year?" We always laugh on the inside and smile politely on the outside when we get that question. Logistically, it would be a nightmare to plan that far into the future...for us AND for partnering organizations. That said, we're not […]
