When we were originally mapping out the start of this trip, the plan was to beeline it through Pennsylvania and Ohio to Wisconsin to spend time with Zach’s brother and his family. But the last few weeks have been more of a whirlwind than expected with trip preparation, weddings, and far too many goodbyes. As the departure date crept closer, we realized we needed a few days to ourselves, to relax and take in all that was ahead of us. We needed to breathe.
After over a year of planning and four solid months of working on the van one would imagine we’d be departing Worcester with, at the very least, a hint of confidence that we had adequately prepared. In reality, I am saturated by thoughts of doubt.
