To put it simply, life is short. We can’t predict the future. So, we decided to seize the moment, take a chance and GO FOR IT! Today is our Someday…
We sold our house and furniture and put the rest in storage. Traci quit her job in marketing and Mike quit his job in outside sales. Bought a 40 foot motorhome (“The MoHo”) and decided to go on the ultimate road trip through the US and Canada. Our departure date is May 16, 2013 and return date is open-ended. Our hope is to travel for 18 months to 2 years, then return to Washington refreshed and ready for the next stage of our lives before we can “officially” retire.
We had been talking about doing something like this for a long time, but never really thought we could seriously pull it off. Correction: Mike always knew; it just took some time to convince Traci — it’s the glass half-full/half-empty thing. After countless discussions and planning, researching, budgeting and wine drinking, we decided to make it happen. Scary for sure, but exciting at the same time.
And here we are, gearing up to hit the road. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you and hearing from all of you along the way! Cin Cin, Mike & Traci
HERE is our first blog post which gives a bit more background.
