The expanse of these United States is breathtaking. Every corner of this country is bursting with its own flair and flavor. Each state so proud of its roots and progressions. We are tired of seeing only one corner, of having one style (although to be fair, it’s a really good deal being in NYC backyard). There has to be more to this provincial life. So Joe and I have packed up our (modified) Honda Element and we are departing on the Honeymoon of a life time. Starting in New York (Long Island), we are embarking on a sustainable, organic, non-gmo, trek across America. The goal is the 48 contiguous states, and to have as small of a foot print as possible.
We will have blog postings about how we modified our car, and the way we made the curtains and the bed platform. And as it gets closer to our departure date we will have complete lists of what we bought and what we packed so that you might be able to go wandering on your own one day too.
We also will have recipes posted since we will be in charge of feeding ourselves on this trip. Bear in mind that the recipes will be small batch (enough for 2 people) since our cooking space will be nothing more than a 2 burner electric buffet.
We hope that this venture out in to the world will show us exactly what our needs are, and how we can meet them with the most sustainable solutions possible. We are responsible for what we put out in to the universe, and we are hoping that this trip will show us more about ourselves than we could have dreamed (for example, how important IS a flushing toilet?).
Stay tuned for our take on sustainable living and our exploration of a beautiful country.
