As with all good things We have to start in the middle of a story. Not to confuse but to begin with a ride rather than the Personal Items that seem to proceed such a trip (at least it did for us). The Plan Leave work (Check) Sell / Give Away almost everything we own (Check) Store the rest (Check) Clean Apartment (Check) Leave Apartment (Check) Make sure the hack is ready (Check) Find unexpected items that need to be fixed (check) Find more things (ahh screw it; Check) Pack hack (Check) Realize we packed to much (Check) Store more items (Check) Still have too much stuff (Check) Throw out extra items (Check) didn’t need jeans anyway! Stuff it, we are off (Check) Travel for a year or so, till the money runs out or we get sick of it! USA, Alaska, Canada, Mexico and Central America.
