Justin over at The Great Family Escape wrote a great post a while ago about that very idea. I know many people look at us and our journey to the ends of the world and feel it just happened.
Although the financial side of our journey was fairly easy to figure out, there were other aspects that were anything but.
In order for us to get on that plane to Alaska, it was a solid year of non-stop, dedicated, all-consuming preparation. We made the decision to rent out our house while we traveled, but to do that the bathroom needed to be remodeled and garage door fixed.
We needed a website but couldn’t afford to pay anyone to do it for us.  John needed to learn how to build it and keep it updated from the road.
How does one manage finances while on the road?  I spent hours researching and set up online banking and auto pay for each and every bill that came in. When I look back upon those months, I realize that any one of those steps could have easily stopped us from heading out. After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. You guys are so inspirational – I love how you had a dream and then it took a year to work towards that dream.


Reading this today made sense of what our life is all about – its about dreaming big and then working towards that dream.

It’s like the journey was handed to us on a silver platter and we didn’t have to work to make it happen at all.
The sprinkler system required an upgrade.  The barn needed to be painted and the siding repaired. It was an enormous amount of work to get everything ready to go and it would have been much easier to forget it. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world.


She is best known for her roles in Layer Cake, Alfie, Factory Girl, The Edge of Love and G.I. I have absolutely no regrets and am more than happy that we didn’t allow the demands to be excuses for not living our dream.
They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico.
There were times when my brain was spinning and I was certain there was no way we would be ready by the time we were leaving. For many people, it would have been easy to use all that work as an excuse for not living their dream. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.
