The Great Escape

About this blog

Howdy y'all, this is our great escape (aka: Our Wellness Program, Our Fake Retirement, Tour de Poor, First Church of the Open Road, Self Unemployed, Off to See the World, etc.) We're not-quite-ready-for-prime-time retirees who decided to jump the gun and hit the road while our bodies still say Yes! Yes!

We're starting from our home base which is the metropolis of Rosman, NC, snuggled in the mountains of western NC southwest of Asheville, between Brevard and Cashiers. On June 1, 2014 we head out in our 2000 Chevy Pick-up with our 1968 Serro Scotty camper in tow... Toto II. Our new home for the next YEAR. Of course we'll also be lugging our Suzuki DR650 and a Kestrel kayak in the bed of the truck. Gotta be prepared for the adventures as they arise.

Follow us as we adventure across ANT (all new terrain) and discover the world. The map shows you our general planned route for the first leg of the journey that gets us all the way to Alaska. We'll be posting the rest of the route later. Don't pay attention to the dates on the map, they may not be correct. However, the dates in the title of each entry will be accurate.

So we'll be posting our first entry after June 1 and periodically thereafter.

We hope you enjoy!

Carrie and Shane
