What does your family think about all this?

Well everyone already thought that we were crazy...when we first mentioned our plans, our family thought it was a joke. After talking about it more and more they realized we were very serious. We've received mixed responses, and obviously several people are concerned and completely against the idea.

We went through family interrogations and talks about safety, but we had already done our homework. They realized how much research we had done and we eventually won their support. We’ve found: the more questions they ask, the more at ease they feel about the “what-if” scenarios...no matter how ridiculous. 

We've encouraged the skeptics to ask as many questions as possible.  This gives us a chance to hear other concerns that we haven't thought about yet, and helps us plan for the worst case scenario.
