New, updated Second Edition includes revised budgeting and technology sections, new section of helpful websites, added information on mid-life sabbaticals, "roadschooling" your children, and working on the road.

Where would your journey take you if you had an extended time to travel? But perhaps you're thinking, "If only I knew how to start planning my adventure!"

This detailed "how-to" guide will get you moving from the dreaming to the doing in no time at all.

Included is step-by-step, real-life information on planning the trip you've always wanted to take -- along with generous doses of humor and advice on topics such as how to pay for a year away from home, how to unravel all your current commitments (to family, work, and organizations), how to plan on the fly and enjoy every day, how to handle the emergencies that crop up along the way, and the most-asked question: How to enjoy your traveling companion on a 24/7 basis!

Once you've decided to "leave it all behind," the authors take you on an action-packed, whirlwind tour of their trip -- just to help you visualize what months on the road might really be like and to offer a glimpse into how decisions and discoveries are made along the way.
