Well, we made it! Thanks to ma and pa McCurdy and some last minute scrambling from our friends, we are finally off.
And we are exhausted.
But this is not the start of just one journey... On top of a gorgeous bluff, 400 feet above the Pacific, with blue skies, a warm sun, and a truly unrivaled view, I asked Jenny to marry me. I am the happiest man in the world (oh yeah, she said yes) and could not ask for a better companion on this grand adventure.
And tomorrow we're off to Beijing! We've spent the last few days reading all we can about this amazing country and we are looking forward to the first real adventure of this trip.
Thanks to all who helped make this trip happen. Let the adventure begin!
