Today Ann sent this off, her first mass-email:
Dear Friends and Family:
Many of you know by now that my (newish) husband Dylan and I will be launching off shortly on our delayed honeymoon: On April 18th we will be dropped off on the Mexico/New Mexico border from where we plan to walk north, staying as close to the Continental Divide as possible, until one of the following happens:
a. we reach Canada;
b. winter sets in; or
c. the Honeymoon is over!
Dylan intends to keep his website updated along the way with the help of a PDA, a cell phone, a digital camera and solar chargers attached to his pack. This is all dependent on an occassional digital cell phone signal, of course. The address is www.cyberhobo.net.
Since I have never done anything remotely like this in my life, it’s quite a ridiculous thing to announce to anyone at all. But so many of you have shown so much support and enthusiasm, I can’t be proud. I just have to thank you for your interest, positive thoughts and prayers! So if you’d like to mail us food or simply follow along you can go to the website. We will be posting our (very tentative) itinerary there before our departure.
For those of you in Santa Fe: We will be at the Rio Chama bar at around 6.30pm this Friday. We’d love to see you before we go!
Thanks again and keep in touch!
