My fellow Misadventurists,
We have our plane tickets. We have some tentative subjects. We have most of our gear. We have some great contacts in Cambodia and Vietnam and possibly beyond.
So it’s now official.
We’ll be landing in Hong Kong for the first leg of our documentary shoot/backpacking adventure in only eight, heart-quickeningly short weeks!

We can’t pretend this departure won’t break our hearts more than a little, as we’ve both fallen in love with our adopted home of Bushwick, Brooklyn, and we can’t say with any certainty when we’ll be able to return. But opportunity, and a chance to strike out on our own – and finally see if this crazy idea will work – awaits us on the Pacific Rim.
Of course all of you will be along for the journey all the way. We promise many more updates to come, whether sick or well, whether on a roll or But for now, on to planning! We have belongings to sell and give away, people to hang with and beloved spots to hang out in before we take off.
