|The adventure traveler's tools|
So now I've contacted about 98% of our monthly bill vendors to get set up with auto-pay procedures and met with my bank to clear all payments and charges out of the US. These tasks take a tremendous amount of patience and time but each and every person I contact to let them know why I'll setting up these accounts are truly amazed and drawn into our trip. It brings a childish smile to their faces knowing people are still willing to break away, flirt with danger, and seek adventure.
We are doing it our way but there are others use boat, motorcycle, bicycle (as Carl our son is currently doing), and RV. Last week Sharon and I received a call from our friends Chris and Bill happened to be visiting us in Bisbee but were staying at a near by RV park, telling us to come over to the park and talk with a German couple taking 5 years to drive around the world in their massive 4WD Volvo box truck converted into an RV. These are the big boys used to cross north Africa and more. Again they gave up working because they had enough to live on and now are seeking adventure where ever the tarmac, dirt roads, and sand dunes will take them. But why did they stop in Bisbee?...because their daughter visited here a couple times and said "You can't miss this town, it's just like being back in Europe and added it's unlike anywhere else." Wow...why are we leaving?
Thank you...Jack and Mark.....Thank you...Chris & Bill....Thank You!
