Day 1: Shelburne, NH to Concord, NH

Yes, you read that right, we made it all the way to ...Concord.
View Kuzmerlain Trip in a larger map Well, our goal is to remain flexible on this trip, keep plans open, roll with it kind of deal. So after packing up the cabin, Brian working all the while and seeing friends and family (not to mention one rousing game of PIG) before we took off on our adventure…we are exhausted! Plus, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 had arrived at my sister’s where I chose to have it shipped, so we were getting that a few weeks early and that was reason enough to head to Concord. Jen and Corey are actually at the Red Sox game tonight so we have the house to ourselves, I can set up the computer the way I want and Bri can veg.

As Kai Ryssdal says, “First, let’s do the numbers”:
Odometer begin: 107,800 miles
Tripometer: 0.0 - 117.2 miles
Gas $ per gallon: $2.01, money spent on gas: $20
Time spent on the road: 2.5 hours
Wx: cloudy, sprinkles and upper 50s.
Numbers of truckloads of garbage/ old furniture to dump: 2

So- today is at my sister and brother-in-law’s and tomorrow is over to Brian’s sister and brother-in-law’s. Familiar territory. It still feels like we are going to return home in few days. We figure once we get to Shenandoah for our first park stop, we will feel like we have really started this thing. Traveling the country to see the sights and to figure out where our next step in life should be…bring on the epiphany!
