Route Details for Each Year

Please note that this is just one of our many projected routes, twice around the world.  Yes, this is one of our favorite routes, but changing politics, unpredictable weather, unforeseen repairs, health, or just because we change our minds, we might take a different route when the time comes.  Still, this is out best guess at our route, at least, for the moment.
