Road Trip – Introduction

Posted on Posted in adventure, Other

In 2010, in the lingering wake of the 2008 market crash that had hit me hard, I decided to fulfill a dream to take up residence outside of the US.  I wasn’t sure where so I knew that I needed to do some wandering first.  Over the course 21 days I drove from Kansas City to David, Panama and then doubled back to settle in the central valley in Costa Rica where I lived for the next 2 years.  I blogged the drive as it unfolded and am republishing an updated account of my trip here.
