Time for me to chime in………….so far Cindy has been doing all the work and I need to get started. Well, we have been on the road for a few months now and we already have a thousand stories. I don’t think a day has passed that we haven’t met at least one person who’s story didn’t “wow” us. Today for instance, we met a young biologist who spends 80 hours a week rounding up invasive wild hogs in the swamp – that doesn’t happen everyday. He said it was’t really what he had in mind when he got his degree but he will be on the Discovery Channel in January.
Anyway, in then next several days, I hope to let everyone know about the triumphs and tragedies of transitioning from a traditional life to a life on the road. More to come………..

We are meeting the most amazing people here. Patrick and I notice how happy people are. Maybe people are this happy everywhere, but in Florida, folks are outside and easier to access for us to assess their state of mind.
Today we met a very like minded couple, except for the 20 year age difference (I’ll admit Patrick and I were the seniors). Natasha and Spencer are on their way to Everglade City a.k.a. The Swamp. Their beautiful puppy, Augustus Pierre, a pug/dachshund is one of the coolest dogs we’ve met. Natasha is originally from Ireland and while spiriting her way around the US found Spencer in Utah. Now together they are creating a life driven by wanderlust. She’s keeping an illustration journal and talked about how it has affected her life. Drawing and wanderlust, I love it ! I’m very inspired, thanks Natasha !! We’ll come see you guys next month. We’re ready for The Swamp !
The last thing I sketched was Patrick fishing in Hatteras.
