Frequently Asked Questions
How will we be travelling?
We will be traveling by car (my trusty Toyota Corolla - still running great!). We are budgeting for gasoline and anticipating a price increase, but hopefully it won't get too rediculously expensive
within the next year.
- Where are we going?
We will be doing some camping along the way and staying with friends & family when/where possible. We have several communities that we are currently in contact with - mostly in the Missouri-Virginia
area, and will most likely find a few more before the journey's done. We also hope to work on some organic farms through the WWOOF organization.
- Where will we stay?
We'll stay in a tent while camping and at some communities. Other communities provide housing in a dormitory-style residence. We'll stay with each community for 3 weeks to two months.
- How long will we be gone?
This is a trip "of indeterminate length." We are both quitting our jobs and getting rid of most of our stuff. Our initial planning is for roughly a year. We expect to be back in Texas for Thanksgiving
2006. At that point, we will take some time to re-evaluate and see where we want to go from there.
- What about money?
We have budgeted for expected expenses and saved up a small buffer, but we intend to live inexpensively. We will be working for room and board wherever possible and camping in between stops.
