Here you will find an archived collection of posts from The Great Family Escape.
I have excluded a few interviews and promotional posts, but aside from that, our journey is here. Looking back, I'm kind of amazed at how far we've come. There were times when we wanted to quit, but we didn't. There were times when we thought everything would work out perfectly, but it didn't. We've changed our plans often, but we've never forgotten the goal. A lot of effort with some luck thrown in.
If you're thinking about escaping and traveling the world, these archived posts should help.
