Preparations are just beginning.  Burning questions are being answered such as:  Do we need visas?  Do we need to advance book our train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai? How many supersoakers will we need for Songkran?

So why Lemons to Lemonade?

As many of you know, Scott was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease a couple years ago
 at 45
.  This was a gut punch that made us take a look at our life and what we want out of it.  

After re-prioritizing a few things and many 
 later, we decided to make lemonade out of the lemons life handed us and embark on a grand adventure.  We are going to get busy living, unplug from the toxic politics of the U.S. for a while, 
​and ​
give our kids a taste of the wider world.  This family 6-pack is heading to SE Asia! 

Megan is taking a leave from her job and we're pulling the kids out of second semester a little early. We leave KY on March 27th and will return to the Bluegrass July 30th.  In those 4 months we will be calling Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia and other places (Cambodia ? Myanmar ? Sri Lanka?) home!  Scott will see a neurologist in Bangkok and hopefully learn about new treatments and approaches to PD not available in the U.S.
