During this last full week of December Jay and I were busy putting together some new and exciting features for 2012. Let’s talk about 2012 for a moment. When we left on February 1st, 2011 we said we hoped to stay on the road for a year. That sounded like a long time and we weren’t sure if we could do it so we didn’t want to over commit ourselves. Well, with only one month left, we are no closer to being ready to settle down and we are finally getting good at overland travel. So the new plan is to try to keep going until April or May and to hopefully make a little money along the way to offset our costs.
On Monday we announced our new store on Zazzle. We have 29 products for sale so far and we will have almost twice that by the end of the week. Please let us know if there is a type of product you are interested in that we haven’t created yet.
FEATURED PRODUCT OF THE WEEK
Second, as Jay wrote about on Tuesday, he received a helmet cam for Christmas and we are now able to provide video from the trail. Well, this has motivated us to create a YouTube Channel on which we will feature all different kinds of videos from the road. We are also uploading some old videos from the last 11 months that we hadn’t had a good way to share.
FEATURED VIDEO OF THE WEEK
We are planning to leave Phoenix and hit the road again next week, starting in southern Arizona and working our way across to southern California. We welcome your suggestions for where to camp, volunteer, visit breweries, etc. Thanks for continuing to read and support us.
