Prophesy and Sticky Revelations

Since we have the freedom to do what we want... we decided to change our plans just a bit.  We were going to spend the last 2 weeks of our time in Southern Utah in Zion National Park, but instead decided to head to Prophesy Wall for some climbing and camping.  Instead of blabbering on and on in this blog post about what climbing at Prophesy was like, we'll just show you what it was like in a video (We got cool new GoPro® HD Helmet HERO™ Camera and had to test it out).  Read more

Over the Edge: Rappelling at Kolob Terrace

We've volunteered to be victims in a high angle rescue course this weekend (that post will come later).  Well, after meeting our friend and course instructor Kevan Jorgensen to learn what we'd be doing as victims, he suggested we head up to Kolob for some real fun.  We gladly accepted.

Homelessness Redefined: Life at The Gap

When we made the comment on Facebook that we were "officially homeless", it seemed that other people didn't want to accept the fact.  We got responses like "your home just has wheels" and "home is where you set your backpack".  Although we appreciate the comforting sentiments, we're actually thrilled to death to be "homeless".

And so our journey begins...

The moment we've been working for is finally here.  It's still a little surreal and will take some time to sink in.  We've quit our jobs, bought a van, sold everything we could and donated the rest.  Our possessions have been thinned down to what we can fit in our backpacks and our van. Read more
