A truck camper stands on jacks in the driveway. The house looks simultaneously cluttered and empty as belongings are moved from shelves and cabinets to be packed into boxes for storage.  We are preparing for a long road trip around the continental United States, and the truck camper will be our home on the road.

Instead of experiencing states through highway gas stations, we will meander the backroads and see America slowly. We will hike through parks and stop at museums and libraries and meet people and learn from their histories and points of view. I expect to drive through quirky and quaint towns and see the country’s most majestic sites at the national parks and take more pictures than will fit on my devices. A lot of things will also happen that I cannot expect, and adventure lies in that unknowing. 

It is sure to be an unforgettable experience, and we want our family and friends to be able to join us here on this blog. Check back for updates and photos or subscribe to receive an email every time we post. Thanks for following along on our journey – ever on!

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can
