Bicycling Family

A couple years ago, I began reading an on-line travelogue about the Vogel family from Idaho. The parents took a year off from teaching school, and did a cross country bicycle tour with their twin boys (about 8 y/o at the time) that included a loop through Mexico.
At one point, I was busy and didn't check their travelogue for a few weeks. Imagine my shock and disappointment when I found out they had come through Arkansas, and had to stop a few days in Harrison due to bad weather! I would have so enjoyed meeting them, and perhaps treating them to a hot meal, to hear first-hand about their journey.
Well, this summer they hit the road again. Think a year-long trip across the US was a big deal? This time, they are traveling the Pan-American Highway, a 2 1/2 year trip from northern Alaska to the tip of South America in Argentina!
Here's a link to more info, if you'd like to follow their adventure:
