Since our trip officially begins at noon on May 31, 2009 in DC, there are now officially 100 days left until departure. Said another way, from here on out there is less time to spend waiting for the trip then we will spend on the trip. Said another way, half of the next 200 days will be spent exploring the great country that we grew up in but don’t really know as well as we should. Said another way, from now until we leave, every minute we spend planning, sleeping, eating, working, or anything else, will be matched by the time we spend on the road. Needless to say, we are all really excited. I captured the above screen shot to mark the occasion.
