Call Us the Myth Busters

When Ed or I tell people who have never considered our country’s southern neighboring countries that we intend to travel in our motor home through Central and South America, the reaction is predictable. “Can you really get there from here?” “Is it safe?” “I’d be afraid to go there.” When met with these reactions, we both feel compelled to comment on our readings and known experiences of other adventurous spirited persons. Call us the myth busters! Often, I wonder why people seem so afraid to leave their comfort radius around “home” and experience more than what the television brings to the arm chair audience.

The packing/storage trunks arrived today. Let’s move on from Whitehouse, Texas.
