257 days on the road!

We have been on the road for 257 days.  This map shows the route and a pin drop at each overnight location.  Using the program “pocket map” Mike is able to log our travels and write a passage about each days events.  This moving diary is a fun reflection on the places, events and people.  It also helps us remember things when we sit down to talk about certain occurrences.

stickers 1This is the rear, passenger side window of the van.  It has been sealed with paint on the outside, and insulation plus pegboard on the inside.   Then it became a moving chronicle of some of the places we visited.  This is just SOME of the amazing stops, sights, sounds and activities.  This colorful collection is fun for us to look at when we are stopped, as we remember the incredible opportunities that we have found. The sticker-story is to be read from lower corner, left to right, then second row left to right, etc.  Here is a list of the stickers that are shown:
