It’ll just be us and the open road…live vicariously through us, why don’t you?

Last updated: December 2014

So, we are actually going through with it all! Yes…it might sound pretty crazy, but we have both resigned from our full-time positions at our respective companies and are going to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. Why, you ask? Well, why not?

Michael and I are planning to get married at the end of the year, and at that point, we will want to officially settle down in a nice community in the New England area. Within the next few years we are planning to have kids and by that time, it would be too late to enjoy some quality time together, traveling the United States.

What is our exact goal? When Michael and I went on our second date ever he took me geocaching, which I had never heard about before. It is a fun way to find items that have been hidden by people in locations all across the world. Our plan is to be able to reach  at least one cache in each of the 50 states and put our newly designed frisbee with our sticker!

We have divided our first ever mini-retirement trip across all 50 into four separate legs, mainly because we still had some obligations back in the northeast with planning our wedding.
