Leaving on a Jet Plane...

...don't know when we'll be back again! The day is finally here; we leave this afternoon for Bogota. The only plans we have are our first two nights in a hostel and a tour of a rose farm on Wednesday. I don't have much to actually say, other than thank you to everyone who has been supportive of us as we take on this crazy adventure. As promised earlier, I have some pictures of our notable "lasts" in the states

the last ice cream: gelati from Rita's

In other news, we received an email request for an update on our ice cream consumption in the sidebar. Originally, we planned our arrival in Colombia as the official start of the trip. Upon further review, it was decided that the official start should be moved up to our arrival in Zanesville, given our tourist activity in the area. Daniel, being the overachiever that he is, has improved functionality so that the "ice cream consumed" is now clickable to include a detailed breakdown of each ice cream and its flavor. We have further decided that ice cream is to be defined as ice cream, custards, gelato, and sorbet. Jordan thinks that popsicles and italian ices should not count towards our ice cream totals, but Daniel is insisting that they should. Leave a comment to be the tiebreaker: should popsicles and italian ices count as ice cream?
