The road trip is definitely under way now, as we drive into the Guajira provence of Colombia to visit Punta Gallinas. Shadow drives like a superhero into some really tough terrain, and Maggie and Adam see goats, flamingos, baby sea turtles and more. Showers, of all shapes and sizes, are embraced, and Adam talks about his poo.

Ready for some audible sighing? Because the car still hasn't been cleared by customs. Adam and Maggie pout about bureaucracy, but also play some poker, do some CrossFit and study some Spanish in Santa Marta, Colombia. Also, Adam gets pooped on by a pigeon.

Adam and Maggie may be laying low in Cartagena right now, but that doesn't mean anxiety ain't running high. We talk strange fruit, the upfront costs of this trip--from the car to the camping equipment-- a little bit of Crossfit, and a lot about Adam's butt.

Adam is on the Belizian news. Hurricane Earl hits, and everyone's ok, except for that slide at Caribbean Villas. That slide is no more. We discuss anxiety, travel and otherwise, sponges on the beach, and how much chill is required to eat in Caye Caulker. Spoiler: all of it. All the chill.

Adam and Maggie make it to Belize! It's beautiful here, what with the crystal clear, turquoise waters, the plumeria, the coral reef and all the varied, gorgeous fish. Oh yeah, there's also a tropical storm / maybe hurricane coming. No big deal, right? RIGHT?

We talked quitting your job to go do something impractical and cool, with stand-up comedian and podcaster, Red Scott. You may know Red from his amazing Game of Thrones recap podcast, Boars, Gore and Swords, and if you don't then you should. He's got some solid ideas about a life worth living, and he's also hilarious.

Adam and Maggie eat their way through Austin and now New Orleans. We respond to some listener questions, and talk breakfast tacos. Mostly this episode is about food. Mostly, food is our number one priority anyway, so, there's that. Adam ate 1.5 lbs of meat in a single sitting. 

  Food is very important. Tacos are very important. Barbecue is very important. Anyway, we liked Austin, and by that we mean it was delicious.

This episode we have special guest, Richard Hall, for an interview about adventure, surveillance, and what it was like to be one of the first Americans into Vietnam after the war. He's also Maggie's Dad. Maggie is lucky like that. 

  This photo wasn't taken when we did the interview, it was taken at Thanksgiving. Adam doesn't have a mustache anymore, is really the only change though. Oh, and also we don't live in that apartment anymore.
