Could you imagine selling your practice as well as most of your belongings? Could you imagine packing up your family into your van, to leave on an adventure with only a vague destination in mind? Beginning in January 1997, my wife, our six children – aged three to 12 – and I, drove from our home in Quebec, to the bottom of South America and, eventually, back home.
