A big thank you to those who have donated so generously on our journey!
If you follow Dan’s music, Carolyn’s music, or their band “The Fam Band” and love what you have heard so far…
If you are enjoying this song blog…
We ask for your help.
Although we have been saving for over a year now, gigging, serving tables, teaching yoga, working for audio production companies, you name it, traveling is expensive!
As you know, we will be traveling as self-sufficient backpackers; carrying everything we need to survive on our backs, including shelter, food, water, and clothing. In addition we are carrying two travel guitars and all recording equipment needed to produce and share these songs with you. We have spent most of our money buying the gear to make this song blog possible, including the ipad, imic, camping gear, guitars, camera, visas, flights, and bus fares. We have also payed our bills back home for the time we are traveling. This leaves us with about $5000 that we have saved up together. $5000 divided by 150 days (5 months) = $30 a day (split between us two). We are getting by by camping and volunteering, but it is a struggle.
Dan and I ask, with our utmost gratitude, for your donations. With a bit of help, we will be able to make this song blog something you can look forward to each week! We will be able to share pictures, videos, songs, stories, and most importantly original MUSIC from all over South America, including Maccu Picchu!

Your trek of musical discovery and creation is truly amazing! Funny how nature pulls you in such fantastic directions when you let yourself be free. The music is top notch with such inspired character
