The time has come, and we're on the road! It's hard to believe that after all the planning, moving, and packing (note that I didn't say training) we're finally away.

A lot of our trip planning time has been spent organizing equipment. You don't want to be carrying anything extra, or be short some important item. Check out our painfully detailed packing list here.

Everything on the list neatly piled

Humble Beginnings

About a year ago, Jenn and I started talking about riding our bicycles down the Pacific Coast of the US to the Mexican border. This would be a month long trip, well within our physical and mental limits. But then we thought ... since we're already at the Mexican border, why not explore Mexico. And then later ... well this would put us in Central America, we've always wanted to learn about the Mayans and explore the Caribbean ... may as well keep going.

To make a long story short, our month long trip has turned into an eight to ten month odyssey which will involve us quitting our jobs, moving out of our apartment, and liquidating most of our belongings! Our endpoint is still undetermined, but will most likely be Buenos Aires, Argentina.
