A pre trip blog post

I am still learning how to work this website. I now understand why people are willing to pay so much to have a site built for them. Here I am, in Key West, Florida working as many hours as I can at Outback Steakhouse and anticipating a day when the source of my anxiety is no longer singing birthday at the foot of a ranch covered table in an “Australian” themed restaurant. Anyway, enough negativity, Jason and I bought tickets for Lisbon last week. We fly out of Jacksonville, May 21st, 12:20 p.m, I picked up a brand spanking new Surly LHT for a supremely discounted price and although I have to sell the bike I rode through Oregon, the new bike has made this adventure start to feel much more real and incredibly close.

My little brother gave me his old Go Pro for Christmas, I am learning how to use it and we have honest intentions of making Youtube movies along the way. I will post any videos that happen here on this blog. I am a little nervous about traveling with a laptop, it is something I have never done before, but I am excited to have an outlet and public place to work on my writing. Jason will also be making posts once I teach him how to use this thing.

I suppose the direction of this website will develop along the way. As for now it will be something to show people when they ask what we are planning. Keep checking back because we will have plenty to talk about in the time leading up to our exit from Key West.
