Tick, tick, tick

And the race against the clock has begun.  We head out of Carbondale tomorrow morning.  We've had such good times hanging out with family and friends and enjoying our little town.  We've made it carless for 2 weeks and I'm loving my bike trailer now even more than ever.  And we've been so lucky to have Bob and Shirley's condo as our staging area.

On Thursday morning we fly out of Denver in the morning and will land in Guayaquil, Ecuador, that night.  After a 6 hour bus ride the next day we'll arrive at in Bahia de Caraquez and stay at an inn called Saiananda.  We have a week to relax there, visiting with the proprietor, Alfredo, who is friends with Danny's cousin, Laurie, taking in some beach time, and exploring the town.  September 16 we'll travel to Rio Muchacho and try to learn the ropes of the farm and school.

Our backpacks are almost packed, our good dog, Sadie, is ready to move in with Sarah and Rob, and the butterflies are flying around our stomachs with much gusto.  It's almost time...
