After 6 years of living in the real world (aka - not college) we've come to the conclusion that the path we are following might not be exactly what we wanted after all. We are finding that we are letting the daily grid of our jobs wear us down and aren't taking the time do the things that make us happy. For the last couple of years, we've been hacking away at our debt and squirreling away as much as we could into savings and have finally gotten to the point where we can make the changes we've been waiting for - we are ready to 'turn-about'.
Over the next few months, our big project and first step in this direction is to build a teardrop trailer. We are fortunate that our apartment has a tiny back yard and since it’s the middle of the winter, our landlord gave us full reign go ahead with our build. Though we have some skills (Rebecca works in architecture and Darrell is a mechanical engineer) we have never built anything like this before and are learning as we go. This is also ultimately a great test to see if we can design and build something together without killing each other!
With the trailer completed, we will have the ability to pack up and go at a moments notice - to travel the country and have new adventures. Our hope is to fan out beyond New England and visit as many national parks as we can while always having home with us. And as we travel along we can figure out the next direction our lives will take!
