If my past history is any indication of what's to come right when things start getting good, the hairy hands of fate intervene. Perhaps that's one reason I just want to keep moving.

Classic. Next time!

So many rich possibilities from a journalistic standpoint.. compare, cultures, riders, etc.
"Europe with an Italian Supermodel" is all I can think about lately....I fell asleep last night examining google maps and planning out routes on my iPhone.

Thanks again for your hard work and insight... please keep us posted on when your book will be out.
Thanks for saying so. Everyone's support and feedback has changed my life as well. The beginning and the end of the novel are 'finished' (meaning only 20-30 more proofreads/changes, etc.), which is a relief, because it has been the most difficult writing I've ever done. The middle is a mess at this point.

Ben was super cool! More on him in the next update....which I may not have time for until Sunday!!!

(Spoiler alert: I literally just packed my gopro in and charged up my camera batteries. R/R: San Francisco coming up soon!)
