On the Road... Again!

See that little "Where Are We Now?" map in the upper left corner?  For the past four weeks, as we have prepared the van, gathered supplies and recovered from illness, it has read "Loveland, CO, USA".  Today, the map will move.

Yesterday was the first day of Spring, and a time for new beginnings.  Today, exactly one month after we left Phoenix, we are beginning our journey across the country.

We want to thank Ed and Connie for putting us up and putting up with us.  As you'll see in a future post, they did a tremendous amount of work in outfitting the van and they will continue to help us out by taking care of Asher, storing our additional stuff and minding our mail.  We wouldn't be making this journey without them.

And now, we present to you, The Eagle...

It is time for us to fly!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!

DIY Wort Chiller

We here at Curious Souls H.Q. are always looking for ways to save a buck or two. So, when shopping around online for a wort chiller for home brewing, we found the following prices: $65 @ Midwest (plus shipping) $70 @ Northern (plus shipping) $39 @ Amazon (plus shipping) So, off to the hardware store... 3/8" (internal diameter) Vinyl Tubing (10 feet) = $4.15 Sink to hose adapter (varies based on your type of sink) = $4.79 3/8" X 20' Copper Tubing = $24.13 Vinyl Hose Coupler = $2.49 Hose clamps (x2)  = $1.70 Band-aids (x2 or x3 or x4) = $1.00 For a total of $38.26 (pre-tax, no shipping), we decided to roll our own. Here's how it went down... ( vid link ) And, of course, there is the joy of having made something all by yourself! Priceless & fun!
