On the road with no wifi...

It probably comes as no surprise that the Campbulance is not equipped with wifi. On top of that fact, we've already managed to sail through our data on our phone plan this month. Because of this fact, we've resorted to being fairly off the radar to save data and money.

We holed up last night in a motel in Sturgis, North Dakota. Christian was in desperate want of a shower and I was excited to sleep with an exorbitant amount of pillows. It also meant we got access to wifi for the night and briefly this morning before we leave.

This is only the briefest of updates since I'm about to have to pack everything up to hit the road again, but we felt so badly for the internet silence that we wanted to post something.

Our trip has taken us up through Colorado, into Utah and then over to Boise, Idaho to visit with family for a few days. From there we made our way across Wyoming and now we're about to knock out some serious miles in South Dakota. Turns out, Vermont via Idaho isn't the most direct route...

For a few more updated photos and such, please check and follow along on our Instagram here. With no data, we will won't be posting all that much, but if I find a snippet of wifi here or there, I'll try hard to throw a few photos up when I can!

Big updates will come once we reach the east coast and have time to edit some video footage we've been getting!

Before we head south...

A few folks have voiced varying degrees of concern after reading about us selling everything before we hit the road. More specifically, this concern has been aimed at the fate of our beloved Campbulance. Let me set the record straight here and now. The Campbulance will not be sold.

In fact, before we set off on the two-wheeled vehicles, we're doing a whirlwind trip around the USA to see our family. This was an important decision to make given that we have no timeline for our trip south and therefore no clue when we'd get a chance to see all of our family again. We're on track (at least we hope we are) to leave the Vail Valley this Sunday to start our cross-country trip in the Campbulance. We'll head up to Idaho first, then over to Vermont, down through Cape Cod and Alabama, ending up in Arkansas.

Luckily, the bikes are small enough to fit perfectly in the back of the Campbulance, so taking them along is a breeze.

A decent portion of my family lives in Arkansas, so we'll be parking the Campbulance there and it will act as a storage unit for whatever belongings we've held onto while we're gone.

The other big concern has been the fate of our dear travel-kitty Loulou. Not to worry, she'll be taken care of in Arkansas as well. My grandpa is graciously taking her in and will be keeping her company while we're away. It absolutely breaks our hearts to be leaving her behind, but we have the sneaking suspicion that she'd rather skip the ride on the motorcycles.
