The Great Escape – Seattle, WA to San Jose, Costa Rica Pt4

Sherry Valentine - Road Trip from Seattle, Washington to San Jose, Costa Rica "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." -- Helen Keller The impact of the comments from family members, friends, business associates, sales clerks, waitresses and casual encounters with others made my friend and I realize that the upcoming road trip adventure we are about to embark on was extraordinary, courageous and of great interest to others. Here are some of the repetitive comments we heard: * "You can drive to Costa Rica?" * "Puerto Rico, where's Puerto Rico?" * "Aren't you afraid of traveling through all of those countries?" * "Can I go with you?" Our research of those having made the trip was scarce with one exception. We leave Seattle, Washington for a visit with friends and family along the way expecting to leave the U.S. via Brownsville, Texas following Labor Day weekend. Our route will take us down the eastern coast of Mexico, crossing into Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and finally arriving in Costa Rica. We've reached a point in our lives where life adventures take on new meaning.
