In A Nutshell….

August 31, 2012

On my 56th birthday (and I was born in 1956), I’m leaving on a 56 week road trip to all 56 states and U.S. territories; making a $56 donation every day to a worthy cause and walking 8 miles a day (because 8 miles a day times 7 days a week is…well, you get the drift!). This is only possible because of the sale of my business, and the fact that the kids are now all out of college. I have a set budget each week, and the more frugal I am with expenses, the more donations I can make, but it must be a minimum of $56/day. Donations will include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, military-related organizations, animal causes, and countless other possibilities. And the walking will be a good way to balance the time in the car on many scenic roads that will beckon. Tula, my chocolate lab, will be my co-pilot and walking buddy!

    Very, very cool, Nancy. I can’t wait to read all about it. If you have any time for reading while on your adventure, a great book is Wild by Cheryl Strayed about a woman who rediscovers herself while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail solo.
