As the clock ticks down toward our date to start the new adventure, we reflect on our motives for undertaking it. Of course, we will be doing volunteer work and hoping to make a difference in the lives of others. But we also want to make a difference in our own lives, challenging ourselves to confront our limitations and step out of the comfort zone. And as we mention, we’ve already been doing this for years, living a minimalist lifestyle in an RV. Now, we’ll be doing it just living out of our backpacks.
