Lauren, thank you! Love this app but it's taking some getting used to. Your lunch spot today sure sounded good :)

Erin, I love following you. Before you post your waypoint, summarize your day in the "caption" spot. (I know, you probably don't have the time... ) Also you can edit your comments and post a waypoint manually in case you missed a spot.
Love to you & family!!

Let the adventures begin. I will follow you every day!!

The journey begins! Only some 3000 + miles to go and a collection of memories to be made.
