    1. Wow! It’s very cool that you found our blog.

      Nice meeting you as well, one of the unexpected joys of our travels for me, has been meeting so many other interesting people. I even posted one of my “epiphanies” from the road has been that when you stop limiting your contact with new people to only customers at work or at Wal-Mart – surprise! People really are good!
      Thanks for your encouragement. Keep searching for and enjoying those beautiful sunsets together!
