From Liberty Forest
No celebration for finishing update I was hoping for one last one with a pic of you on Alcatraz Island
It ain’t easy to digest… takes a bit of getting used to… not having any mileage in front of me… The stress relief (…will I make it?) is enormous… I just walked around the city all day yesterday, in a daze… In the end, the transition is anti-climatic. The value is in the journey…
Got back on the bike today, to visit the last sheriff’s office of the trip. Was at city hall. The American flag was heisted from my rig… Everything else was fine…
Still digesting, will try to start writing tonight…
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
