The Start of a Pilgrimage

This blog was started about 9 months after we started traveling, and when I say traveling, I mean two things: we started moving a lot because we wanted to and we could, Dan became a travel nurse (just click on it and explore the site to find out more. This is also the company Dan worked for) and our children got involved in public speak and academic debate which caused us to do some more traveling.
It was 7 years ago today that we began this journey. First we left during a cold winter and spent our first week in FL. During that week there were 2 ices storms and one snow storm here in MA, while we were golf and swimming in the Sunshine State. At the end of the week we made our way to VA Beach, to Dan's first travel assignment. Yes, that is the long way from MA to VA.
Our fellow pilgrims were 13,11,and 10 back then. We have only managed to live in 7 states at 15 different addresses and 18 moves. We are still on the move but have limited ourselves to the Commonwealth.
At the moment I don't have enough energy to give a strong and reflective look back. It only dawned on me a couple of hours ago that today was the day. If you read regularly and you didn't start at the beginning, you might want to start there.
Happy Ending of the 24th of March, 2010.
