So, what’s new?

Over here? Lots. This is how it breaks down.

Step 1. We are selling or giving away almost everything we own.

Step 2. We are getting a tiny storage unit to store our photos and other few irreplaceable items.

Step 3. We are loading up our van with what we need to live and work and-

Step 4. We are going on the hugest, most awesome-est road trip ever.

Step 5. We want to meet up with you!

You can read all about our adventure at the Reboot website. You can also submit to be considered for the book Prized Possessions.

Something about pairing down our possessions made us wonder what other people find precious. And so, of course, that meant I needed to interview tons of people about it and make a book.

Here are some ways to be involved in our Reboot Tour:

-Check out the map and let us know if you want to meet up with us when we pass through your town.
-Submit to be in the book.
-Sponsor some of our trek and get an awesome Thank You package.
-Spread the word!

  1. How exciting! We did a similar trip (sans the fun interviewing) right after graduating college. It remains one of the best things we have ever done. Good luck and happy travels!

  2. Awesome! Have you read Cheap Motels and a Hotplate by Michael Yates? It’s a great book and I’ve just found his blog: http://blog.cheapmotelsandahotplate.org/

    I’m in Toronto should you head up this way. I’ll show you around the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health, what was formerly known as the Lunatic Asylum. It’s a shame you won’t make it up here for the Rendezvous with Madness Festival, which starts next weekend. http://www.rendezvouswithmadness.com/

  3. MAN! Of COURSE I’m going to be out of town when you’re in Prescott.

    Depending on when you’re back this way, I’ve got a guest house you can crash in. My step-daughter’s living there until the end of January but after that it’s completely open.

  4. Fantastic. Giving away all my stuff and hitting the road is the best thing I’ve ever done. I can’t wait to follow your journey. And hopefully cross paths!

  5. Stop in Raleigh if you find yourself wondering where to hit after Roanoke (which is where I lived as a kid!). What an awesome journey.

  6. How utterly fantastic and adventurous! If you are looking for somewhere following Roanoke please consider DC. Don’t really bake pies but I have awesome cupcakes with Nutella icing.

  7. @Bad Mummy – What a great resource! Thanks for the info. I’ll let you know when we get close. Love to take a tour.

    @PaintingChef – You’re on the map!

    @Erin – We will be back! I’ll let you know when.

    @Shannon – Love to hear what worked for you!

    @Mom101 – Ha! We watched that a few days ago. Warning noted.

    @Oso – We’d both love that. We miss you.

    @ilinap – You’re on the map!

    @Bobbie – You’re on the map! Plus, I like cake.

    @Other Leah – We’ve already got you scheduled, just need to firm up some other plans and I’ll let you know.

    @Jeannine – NUTELLA IS JUST FINE.

    @Erika – I hope we get to see you!

    @Jenn – That looks like fun. We might need to hook up with some of those people.

    @Karen – You are SO on the map.

    Thanks, everyone! xoxo

  8. This is amazing!!!!! I’ve been reading your blog for a long time and maybe only commented once or twice, if at all, but I had to say – this is amazing. You’re super cool that you’re doing that and I wish you only the best. I have a feeling this is going to be a fantastic adventure for you.
