March: Go time. Kayla's last day at Denver Dumb Friends League was be March 20. After a sendoff party that involved a "take everything but the dog" free-for-all of our remaining stuff, we hit the road on March 31st.

April: We spent the first day of April in Durango, Colorado. From there, we= headed to Salt Lake City, Utah for two weeks. There, Kayla will get her Wilderness First Responder Recertification. We'll finish out April in Las Vegas, chasing sunshine and rock climbing. We'll take this time to get used to living on the road. Kayla will also take some time to fly to Boston for the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants conference.

May: We drove from Las Vegas to Albuquerque, then to Dallas. We finished the month in Memphis. Kayla's sister graduated from Rhodes College on May 10. We then turned our noses north and visited Kayla's family and friends in Chicago, Madison, Minneapolis, and the northwoods of Wisconsin.

June: We visited a college friend in Jackson Wyoming. Kayla and her mom are ran the Yellowstone Half Marathon on June 9 while Andrew and Kayla's mom's boyfriend ran the 5k. We spent another week in Bozeman before meandering through Helena, Glacier, and Coer D'Alene, Idaho.

July: We spent Andrew's birthday in Seattle, then turned north. We spent a week in Victoria, two weeks in Vancouver, and a few days in Kelowna.

August: We returned to Seattle in early August. One of Andrew's cousins got married on August 11. We both flew back to Denver for a few days, and plan to spend the rest of the month in Portland area.

September: Our plans get fuzzier around early fall. We plan on spending a few weeks in Santa Rosa and San Francisco.

October: Kayla is running the Bizz Johnson Marathon, which is northwest of Reno. Two weeks later, Kayla's best friend is getting married in Minnesota on October 20, so we're going to fly to that wedding before heading south for good. Our goal is to be in Mexico for Dia de los Muertos. 

November: We start crossing borders. We plan to head to Puerto Peñasco, then Sayulita, then San Miguel de Allende & Guanajuato, Mexico City, Tuxtla Guiderrez and Semidero Canyon, then the Mexican coast.

December: No real plans for Belize yet, though we plan on spending Christmas and maybe New Year's here. Both of our families are kicking around the idea of visiting us, and Belize is a relatively easy country for them travel to.

2019: We'll meander through Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. We'll stay in AirBnb's along the way, chasing good internet connections so we can continue working. Wifi, dog friendly, and safe parking are all we need.If all goes well, we'll continue on past Panama by renting a shipping container to circumnavigate the Darien Peninsula and make it to Colombia. It's no secret that we want to make it all the way to Patagonia.
