We leave one month from today

December is already off to a roaring start, and one month out, there's still lots to do! We have not let up though, and are busy finalizing our itinerary, working on the bus, and getting everything in order prior to our departure.

You read about the route the other day. We have a fantastic group of people that have agreed to help us with research, and we are busy finding, researching, and scheduling stories. By the end of next week we hope to have all of the stories for the first month and a half scheduled.

Steven, our resident video guru has been guiding our purchasing of equipment - watch for a post about what we are using soon! We've taken delivery of many wonderful gadgets and gizmos, many of which I have no idea what they do...

Then there's the bus. Stanley, for the past month and a bit has been in the shop getting a pretty sizable refit. As soon as he's finished, we'll be running him up to the painters who will take another couple of weeks to give him a makeover that's fitting. After that, the good folks at Next Day Sign Express in Bethesda have agreed to apply the vinyl lettering and logos. Still after that, we have to do the work on the interior! All this before the 8th? We'll make it happen.

In the coming days and weeks, we'll take you behind the scenes as Stanley starts to get the biggest makeover of his life.
