For the last few weeks Jen and I have been telling our closest friends that the time has come for me to finally move back to Wisconsin but that I’m going to be doing a bit of a trip before I get settled in. So far when we’ve explained the big trip idea we’ve been met with enthusiastic support. I’m hoping that as I spread the word it will be met with the same reaction.
The one major concern I have in announcing this trip is my parents. They pretty much think I’m nuts and try to change the subject every time I mention it. In my mother’s words “you’ve figured out one more way to get yourself killed.” I’ve just got to figure out a way to help them understand why I’d undertake such a trip, what it means to me, and that there is no need to worry (more than normal) about me getting killed.
Whatever happens in the end, the ball is finally rolling now.
