The question I get all the time from everyone I talk to about my trip is “where are you going?” My reply is always “everywhere”. I really have no set schedule I’m going to follow because I’d rather be flexible and I think if you plan more than a few months ahead, you’re going to [...]
I’m off to Wisconsin again to put another load of crap into storage and have Thanksgiving with the family. I’ve also started a myspace site for my trip. If you have Myspace account (and I don’t blame if you don’t have one), you can add me at http://www.myspace.com/everythingeverywheretrip.
