I ‘heard’ about this project from The Epicurean Cyclist. It really sounds like a WONDERFUL project!
I absolutely LOVE the picture of Laura(?), a pretty young woman, with a great smile, reaching out holding the out of focus yellow wildflowers, and the out of focus bike in the background. I actually gasped when I saw it in the video!
Anyway, consider me another follower of this project / blog. It does have promise! 🙂

Hi Russ and Laura!
I follow many of your blogs and I love reading about your adventures and new discoveries! My partner and I have recently finished our first phase of a similar process to simplify, go car-free, and embrace bike culture. My partner also documented our experience on her blog if you are interested (www.rowdykittens.com).
Furthermore since you are mentioned traveling the world by bike you may want to check out (http://downtheroad.org/adventure-travel-bike-touring-blog). You may have heard about Cindie and Tim. They have been traveling by bike all over the world for the last seven years! They have written a couple books (not that you need another one 😉 and performed a few podcasts answering questions on how they did it.
Good luck and I hope you accomplish your dream!

I’m looking forward to living vicariously through your posts.
And I hope I don’t offend when I say, “Power to the Lispers! Lispers unite!”

Ha. I think my parents wanted to send me to a speech therapist when I was younger because of that. 🙂

This is so awesome! Congrad’s on following your dreams. I’m looking forward to reading more. Good luck. 🙂

Russ, I was in speech therapy for several years, and it came to the point where the teacher just told me, “You know how to speak without the lisp, you just don’t do it when you’re talking normally.”
So we just gave up.

I must say it is amazing the stuff you can aquire over a lifetime. Everytime I have moved, it was amazing what was added to the original 3 bags I started with. Good luck with the packing.

One day I may fulfill this dream as well. I had an opportunity, but I was caught up in materialism. I regret it. I am looking forward to what may still come.

I’ve been married for 25 years. Although my wife and I pedal in as many areas of the US as possible and bike pack locally in NE Pennsylvania, we never really thought about leaving it all behind to pedal across the country or around the globe.
That said, we both enjoy reading all your adventures.
