When Exactly Are You Leaving?

When Exactly Are You Leaving? 1

Originally, we thought we'd be pulling out of Tucson around January 1st [1-1-11 - how cool would that have been?].

As it turns out, it's a little more work than we expected to sell everything we own, buy an RV, and get ready for a year of living on the road. Try it sometime - you'll see. ;)

We're now tentatively hoping to leave sometime next week (next week!).

Here's the short list of things we need to knock out before we go:

  • Work on the truck - install hitch, air bags, brake controller, etc.
  • Re-coat the 5th wheel roof.
  • Install a new microwave in the 5th wheel (thankfully, it's still under warranty).
  • Buy a queen mattress and bedding for the master bedroom.
  • Replace the kitchen and bathroom faucets.
  • Figure out a "workable" work space.
  • Find a renter.
  • Go to the dentist.
  • Order new contacts.
  • Organize and file our 2010 taxes.
  • Confirm projects in San Antonio.
  • Finalize details with launch sponsors.

We'd also like to order Give Every Day t-shirts for our family and get a logo skinned on to our truck, but we may have to do that post-launch. We'll see.

On top of that, we still need to eat, do laundry, take showers, buy groceries, reply to e-mails, play with the girls, etc. Of course, we also want to savor these last days with family/friends.

Think we can do it all?
