Luxurious to us compared to our tent. It had a kitchenette, but we didn’t have food to cook.

 

We don’t know what we have until it’s gone.

Stay humble and kind.

Our first Florida “Home” was a one-bedroom furnished apartment 18 miles from Disney World, $345/month. Unfurnished it would have cost us $305/month. But we didn’t own any furniture. None.

Honeymoon Puget Sound
Honeymoon Puget Sound

The most amazing gift ever, besides the gift of life?

What was your answer?

Did it take some time to sort to it?

Did it come to you immediately?

Are you confused why the question was even asked in the first place?

Unknown Fact of Little Interest?

Honeymoon 1984
Honeymoon 1984

Married in June 1983, we finally took our honeymoon in August 1984. We rode our bicycles from the Pacific Ocean to Grand Coulee Dam.

Two main portions of the trip:

  1. Touring the San Juan Islands of Puget Sound
  2. Traveling along the North Cascades Highway

It was the trip of a lifetime.  Not your typical honeymoon, eh?

We traveled 600 miles in 17 days, and spent less than $200.

Happy Saturday everyone.
