I left work at midnight with the Husky weighing in at 660 pounds full of fuel, food, gear and myself.

I took off to the east from Sacramento with Walla Walla as a distant goal. I rode east out towards Foresthill where I encountered the bear, he and I missed meeting by about 20 minutes. His death made my life feel a little more meaningful.

I've been waiting a long time
for this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all
Downtown lights will be shining
On me like a new diamond
Ring out under the midnight hour


No one can touch me now
And I can't turn my back
It's too late, ready or not at all


Well I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up
Dawning of a new era
Calling... don't let it catch ya falling


Ready or not at all
So close enough to taste it


Almost... I can embrace this


Feeling...on the tip of my tongue
Well I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...


Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars


I've been waiting a lifetime
For this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all
Dumbstruck
Color me stupid


Good luck
You're gonna need it
Where I'm going if I get there at all
Wake uuuuuuuuuup
Better thank your lucky stars
