1/16/2012 – We are about 6 months away from our launch of a year long journey around the country. We will down size from a 1700 sq ft house to roughly a 400 sq ft 5th wheel. The reality of this plan is starting to become real…like what things do we NEED, and what should we store, and what should we sell/give away? Part of our goal is to live simply, but we don’t plan to give up all the convinces of modern culture. We will need the internet for business and school. The amount of space we will have available will challenge all of us. We hope to show our kids that stuff/things aren’t bad, but they aren’t the things that define us or what creates lasting significance.
