  1. Thanks for the picture summary of your trip. Some awesome scenery. Takes a lot of courage to actually do this trip. Nice job.

  2. Thanks. It was a heck of a trip. I never would have made it except for the wonderful people I met along the way…countless strangers offering me kindness…and of course my support back home.
