A Little About Us

Up a tree without a paddle - don't try this without a safety net!

Up a tree without a paddle – don’t try this without a safety net!

In 1997 Curt and I started planning our tandem tour of the world. We hung a wall sized world map on our ceiling, bought maps, books and started talking to our adult children about our plans. We began by selling most of our worldly possessions and replacing them with gear, we sold our house and replaced it with a 4 season 4 person marmot tent that we called the mondo-condo and then we sold our business and replaced it with a plane ticket to Madrid, Spain and a bank account.
In March of 1998 we landed in Madrid and began what we thought might be a 2 year adventure (but agreed that we would be happy with one good year), 15 years later we returned to Colorado and settled in. We have spent the last 3 years connecting with our granddaughters and reconnecting with our daughters, family and friends. These are some of the tales from those years a sort of introduction of what you can expect starting in July when we return to the road.
