Very quick post here. Alisha and I are officially all moved out of our apartment and our stuff is in storage. We've still got a week left at work, so we're staying at friends' places for the week while we finish up our employment. It's been a great weekend, saying goodbye to friends and places, getting my saucer at the Flying Saucer, showing up hungover to a one-year-old's birthday party and getting excited to get on the road!
We're also trying to figure out the best ways to document and get the most out of this experience. We've been experimenting with websites like Daytum and Roadtrippers as well as this blog, Facebook and Twitter. Of course, we'll be taking lots of photos and posting them whenever we can, and we've already been taking daily photos of my facial hair to document it's growth to ridiculousness. Also, we've taken the idea from a friend to do a gift exchange between all the people we are staying with. Each host can give us something they don't need anymore and we'll pass it on to the next people we stay with! We'll try to be giving some warning to our hosts about this, but we'll see what happens.
We'll be officially leaving Houston on Sunday, March 10th (my last day of work is Thursday, Alisha's is Friday) and will be camping near Austin for a couple days before South by South West (SXSW). More updates will follow soon!
