Pacific Coast Finale

Pacific_Coast_FinaleAfter five months on the road, Paul Dorr and I have arrived at our destination. If there is one thing we have learned on this trip it is that a true adventurer must have all the drive to explore but to never expect on arriving. We have arrived to our one true location, our one true terminus.

I could write about ‘looking-back’ and completely summarize my experience for you but I feel like that this would also take a true five months time. A very long story indeed. I implore you to read through our posts and make your own conclusions. I can tell you that when asked if I would cycle this again, I have replied “Yes! but let’s mix it up, for I would pick a different route.” Although not expecting a superior result I feel there is still too much left to see in a short time.

I am writing from my hometown of Mansfield, MA and have fully adjusted to my life of systematic alarm clocks and societal expectations. It feels good to be home, but at the same time I still yearn for the sights not seen, the food not tasted, and the people I have yet to meet.

I hope Paul, Jo, & I have been a true inspiration to some folks out there and I know everyone connected to our project feels accomplished.

May your bikes stay rubber side down.
