Well, Now We HAVE To Go!

Today we agreed with two graduate students from Smith College that they will rent our apartment for the summer! Now we *have* to go on this crazy adventure!

Of course, this is great news, and it will help us significantly with the cost of our trip. Since we are buying the used RANS Screamer (we really need some pictures of it, don't we?), we will have spent quite a bit before we even get to leave the yard, but we're sure it'll be worth it. You only live once, and this is an adventure that we've both dreamed about for a long time.

Some people say that we're especially adventurous to ride a tandem, but we think we're up to the challenge of working together on one bike...for three months. We've spent a few hours on a tandem (and several more in a tandem kayak) before now, and we're still eager for more, having worked out some initial issues. We're really excited to have lined up the machine we'll be riding this early so that we get to practice a bunch this Spring.

It is weird to think of renting out our living space, though. This is where we always come home to. It's where we sleep, eat, and play. It's where all our games are. Those are our pieces of art and dishes and that's our bed. We're really okay renting it all, but it's strange, too.
