General Updates & Happy Birthday to Jade!

Hey Everyone!

We've had an exciting few days!  We crossed our first state line, Jade celebrated her 25th birthday, and we were interviewed by the Hartford Courant (the nation's oldest continuously published newspaper!)  Here's the link to the Courant article:,0,1125408.story

We took a rest day today in honor of Jade's birthday.  We spent some time on our "day off"  planning out our next few weeks and updating our website

With Jade getting an iPhone for her birthday, and Evan struggling with carrying any extra weight in his pack, we've decided to ditch the laptop and will be updating using our mobile phones only.  Which means we'll have more frequent, but shorter updates.  The Kickstarter updates here will still serve as our primary blog.  Our twitter account (@adventureaccess) will be the place most frequently updated place, and our trail has officially been moved to the flickr map.  The map is a little sparse at the moment, but we'll be updating the trail more frequently as we go.  

Thanks for following us on our adventure!
