What is Our Big Escape

This blog is about our move from being two really overweight couch junkies who made the "Big Escape" and transitioned to our life as world nomads. We made a move to leave home and see as much of the world as we could cram into the rest of our time here. Start here and read some of our blog posts but more importantly view our photographs. A photograph can inspire you more than ten thousand words.
Our names are John and Laurel and we are nearer to 70 years old than we want to think about. We have been homeless since 2014. Sounds crazy for two people our age but this is the life that keeps us young.
Remember: You can only grow old when your mind loses interest in life.
