Paul - Three pounds to spare

Here we are, the time that I knew would be the worst part of the entire travel day.  I knew later we would have a tough travel day.  I knew we would have four airborne legs of the trip, two overland legs across towns (one of which I assumed would be by foot with all of our luggage), and finally one waterborne leg by water taxi to our boat. But here I am standing in line dreading the worst part of the day.  The weighing of the bags.

We have it narrowed down to just a couple of boats.
 

Our House is Sold!!

First Blog - Location- Fort Wayne

OK. Here is our first real blog entry. 

The Home sale continues as it does for hundreds of thousands in the United States...unproductively.  Unfortunately, everything does not always go easily and exactly to our plan.  So we are taking it in stride and reminding ourselves that "our plan" is not always His plan. 

About Our Adventure

It's only fitting that our first blog post should give a little background on us, and why we're embarking on this adventure!
