My plans are getting more solidified and I am leaving here in the spring of 2015! I’m very excited, very nervous, and a little overwhelmed at everything I need to do between now and then. But mostly I’m very excited!
One thing I am hoping to be able to get, if I can afford it (it’s around $400) is this: inReach Explorer. Check it out — it’s everything a traveler needs, including GPS, 2-way satellite contact with loved ones, SOS service for illness and injury, interface with iOS and social media. As a disabled woman traveling alone (well, with my fierce attack cat) this is a whole lot of safety and peace of mind for . . . well, a lot of money at my income, but really not so much money overall.
