Josh and Jessica have a young son, and they used to have a lot of stuff. According to their manifesto, that included some pretty normal things: a second car, a 72-inch TV, home theater system, dining table, three sofas, a bed, piles of children’s toys and games, a wardrobe, a snow shovel, and oh yeah a five-bedroom house in the 'burbs of Manhattan, Kansas. But they grew highly dissatisfied with their life, not so much because of their possessions but because of how little free time they had. Who doesn't know that feeling well?

She's blond, blue-eyed, smart, goal-oriented, beautiful, fit, and down for an outdoor adventure of any flavor anytime.
