Things that were supposed to happen:
- We’d be done with our travels at the one year point.
- We would be settling into our new house, in a location we had painstakingly chosen, by Summer 2018.
- Davista would be up for sale by Fall 2018.
- We would blog nightly, astutely capturing what living on the road with a family looks and feels like.
These things have not happened.
The first three have been pushed back by various periods of time, the last we adjusted our expectations about in an effort to nudge them toward reality. The first three for what we fervently hope are excellent reasons, the last due to a combination of poor prioritization, the fact that we’re just playing at this writing thing, and no small measure of laziness.
Here is a map of our one-year progress. Overnights in red, significant stops in purple.
Plan Moon is in effect, which means we’ll be doing this for another year. As the traveling will slow down, I suspect that the blogging will too, though we’ll attempt to cover highlights, major developments, and general thoughts. I’m hoping to do some summation at the end as well, as we tend to get similar questions from folks, and we do have answers, or at least we’re getting them. We’ve learned a lot.
By the way, we’ve been asked, and yes, we do have a page with links to all of our old posts, sorted by time and geography. It’s up at the top menu, or here — Geographical / Chronological Archive
