Alright, I think it's time to kick off this little blog of ours. Today is Friday, April 11, 2014 and we have exactly 4 days left before the day or our departure is here. Who is we you are asking? That would be Alex and Tom, soon living on bikes and in tents. We will hop on our vehicles and start our journey south with Seattle being the beautiful point of departure. This blog will serve as our travel journal as well as hub for photos and the occasional video of the trip. It's going to be great so in the immortal words of Samuel L. Jackson, hold on to your butts!
