Most of my friends and family now know of my impending plans and the consensus is either I’m awesome for trying or completely crazy. Incidentally, that consensus is pretty much the same in my head. I’ve found an adorable little house in Montana that I’m going to rent. Its in the small town square and it is 100 years old! I have a feeling it’s going to be as much of a character as anyone I meet on my journey. Oh, I completely forgot to introduce you to my traveling companion who will be starting a new life as well – my two year old beagle, Loretta. Thankfully, she’s a good traveler – 2000 miles is a long way to go with a grumpy dog.
