After sneaking out of my cancer diagnosis with a little scar, getting divorced, selling the house, losing many of my belongings in a house fire and quitting my teaching job at Portland High School, I really started to re-prioritize my life. Fun first, everything else second. I've sold everything down to the point that the essentials fit in my little Nissan Versa hatchback with my roofrack. Skis, climbing gear, camping gear, clothes, laptop and camera. What else do I need?
I've learned that life is just too precious to talk about the things I want to do and now is the time to just make them happen! After deciding to move west for the winter (and potentially longer, I really have no idea), I decided to look into a trip overseas before I started driving west. A quick search of the interwebs found really cheap tickets to Ecuador! After a little hemming and hawing, I pulled the trigger and bought a ticket! Soon after two of my friends decided to join me and now we take off tomorrow!
Let the adventure continue!
