Livin’ the dream:  PRICELESS


So there you have it, friends.  Despite the new calluses that I sport on my right throttle hand, despite the two close calls I had with the local constables (and escaped without tickets), despite the cold - and heat - and challenges along the way, it was an adventure that I am thrilled to have been a part of.


Thanks to the people who were kind enough to help me along the way, who offered me their hospitality, and who sent me emails of support and thumbs-up.   What a WONDERFUL time I had, thanks in part to your calls and emails and friendships.
