Adam and Maggie are in Cuba! And Adams got all the poop jokes you could ever need thanks to Maggie's debilitating bout with either a parasite/ the flu/ or food poisoning. Havana hucksters, currency woes, and the political climate in Cuba.
We are joined by Sharon Hall to talk about the risk of adopting children, maintaining a sense of humor towards your significant other, and what to do when your car is submerged underwater in a ravine.
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.

Aftermath of Hurricane Earl on Ambergris Caye
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?
Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening. Photo cred to Adam, LOOK YOU CAN SEE THE LIGHTNING STRIKING THE OCEAN
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.
There are things attached to our 4Runner, including but not limited to: gas cans, a refrigerator, and a rooftop tent. It’s possible for our car to catch fire, and GRRM may or may not be involved with Meow Wolf.
There's an Instagram for our podcast now! Let's panic about it!
Check it out.
Our friend Steve took this photo! With his hands! On a camera! HOLY SHIT STEVE!
Not even the DMV can ruin Zion and the Rockies. The difference between bunnies and rabbits, and proper naked bacon cooking form.
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.
The adventure begins in earnest. We route a trail through Death Valley, Red Rock Canyon, and now Utah. Coyotes don't kill us.
We’ve hit the road but we’re doing a family visit circuit through California before starting the adventure in earnest. Our thoughts on leaving San Francisco and the great Death Valley Debate. Adam seeks podcast therapy.
We haven't left yet. A look back at how we got to where we are now: the origin story for our adventure, how the plan changed over time, and all the excuses we made not to leave.
As we prepare to uproot our lives, we figure, why not leave a trail of lies in our wake. Episode negative one of our podcast explores packing, panic and photoshop.
