While preparing for our adventure, we discovered that there are quite a few families living like nomads.  Some people like to wing it, deciding where to stay while on the road.  Others plan everything down to the last detail while some do a combination; deciding the major stops and winging it along the way.  Those of you who know us (ok, me) probably know that we’ve got this thing planned  nearly to the minute!
