We’re back! Happy New Year!

We’re back! Happy New Year!

By @wayoutfarvicki

Hello! We’d like to introduce the new addition to Way Out Far: Scarlett. She was born last month and has been keeping us very busy as we get to know her. They say that a baby changes your life and we would like to tell “they” (whoever “they” are) that “they” are right! It’s been an exhausting, thrilling, emotional, happy, tiring, fascinating and wonderful time so far and everyday we’re so excited to be on this journey with her. It’s not a road trip for sure, but there will be plenty to see and do on the way no doubt! We’ve missed chatting about travel, so thought we’d let you know what we’ve been up to and what we have planned on Way Out Far this year….

Now 8 million residents remain without electricity across the east coast – although not north of 26th Street as you can see in the picture above.
