Adios America

Well, the time has finally come. We are all packed up and ready to hit the road and will be leaving early tomorrow morning!

Although we had originally imagined leaving San Diego in mid-November, things just took more time than we thought and the van ended up needing a few additional upgrades. By now the van is practically like new, nearly every part has been replaced and it’s running beautifully. Here’s a picture of our home for the next year or so:

We will be cruising down Baja for the next few days and will post an update once we’re at our new home base in San Jose del Cabo. Tomorrow we plan to drive 8 hours south of the border to Catavena where we’ll camp, then we plan to visit Conception Bay for some snorkeling.

We are so excited to embark on this adventure- to see new places, meet new people, and to learn about the world out there. I can’t believe the day has finally come! Thank you again to all of our family and friends who have been so enthusiastic, supportive, and helpful. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Hasta luego America!

Here we go!

Hi everyone! Welcome to our blog. We are getting ready to hit the road and I just cant believe that it’s all here! We’ve gotten our vaccinations, given notice to our jobs, and now we’re just taking care of some last minute preparations- which include installing a new engine in the van. Aron is working on that mechanical feat while I am tasked with desinging a solar system, making an awning, and putting together our travel kitchen.

Aron has been working away at the van and nearly has the engine installed. He put in a new radiator, took out the old a.c., and has been working hard on all kinds of stuff that I don’t really understand. Here are some pics of the greasy old engine and the shiny new engine.

We’ll hopefully be hitting the road in mid-November and so far havent made any specific plans besides driving down Baja California, spending a week or two at Aron’s dad’s house in San Jose del Cabo, and then taking the ferry across the Sea of Cortez from La Paz to Mazatlan. The rest will come in time.
