First official post

Hello there and welcome to my blog. My name is Ryan and with this site I will be documenting my family's roadtrip across America to Wisconsin for the 2009 Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This site isn't just for me, or for the unknown guests who may accidentally come upon this blog (which I believe is highly unlikely because no one may honestly care); instead this blog is for you, our friends, colleagues, and family who might like to see how our Pathfinders are doing while traveling, or how your buddy Ryan is having fun on vacation while concurrently observing how the American heartland is enduring these times that try men souls.
To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.
-- Robert Louis Stevenson, Scottish novelist and travel writer
So come on board, and I'll tell you a story
- of where the road lies.
