October 6 people 12 times
October was a month of crisis and community for us. It was by far the hardest month we've had on the road but also the month we were able to connect the most with the traveling community.
At the beginning of the month the Happy Janssen's came to see us, followed shortly by Kev and Ang of the NuRVer's fame. Towards the end of the month we were finally able to meet the Lende's who played a huge part in getting us on the road. And then right before we left California my mom came to see us.
I'm so thankful that we had so much love around us because it's when Dan had his emergency appendectomy. It was scary to be so far from home and facing a medical crisis. It taught us how to let others help us and made me super thankful that we have the internet and can connect with people so quickly.
In amidst the struggle there were very sweet days. Days spent lounging together at the ocean, or simply watching the kids play outside.
Other highlights from the month:
