Hats off to you girl

Great ride, great writing, great heart. Found this RR a few days ago and just caught up. I don't post much but felt obliged to give you credit for a special RR.

A Serdipidous Journey of Closure

This is a most excellent ride report and expression of grieving and of healing. To truly comprehend it's depth it would take a like experience as Anna's in her loss, and as many reading this thread, myself included in the loss of my son. The ship of life we sail in is made up of our dear friends and loved ones. There's no replacing friends like these. We're just grateful to have made our journey in their company. And the beauty of this is, that it's not for us to judge what is a full life, or how long it should have been. The reality is, they lived a full life and we're all the better for having known them. That this RR report expresses to me.

Be safe in your journey Ruff and thanks for sharing it with us.

Wow, awesome report. 150k views, if everyone gave a dollar she would be set for the RTW trip (and report). I'd read it. This report caught my eye because of the Radian from VA bit. I bought my 86 blue radian in 88 for $1600 and sold it for $1000 ten years later.

I told her I would donate $100 to get the ball rolling if she puts up a donate button. She really wants to do South America. I'm sure all of you want to see that as much as I do.

You are top shelf Anna. Never stop riding, nor writing.
Cheers,

South America solo female. I would love to see her go and write about it. I have a real problem solo for her though. Not that she is not capable of it, more than most men I know. I fear for my safety when I am in certain parts of Latin America by myself. I am 6'3" 280# ex law enforcement. But if she puts up the button I will do my part, have been a big supporter from the beginning of both of your rides.

Don't mean to be a grump but I remember the worthy Kaneman and what a fiasco elements of that RR devolved into.

This was a great story well told and now we know she is safe in civilization where cages muggers and horsemeat all lie in wait to trip her up.

Well...maybe there were some lessons learned there. I supported Josh & would be glad to support Anna. Haters are gonna hate. There are plenty of positive, supportive folks here.

Put that button up girl

Paypal links or links for donations are no longer allowed in ride reports. So it's pointless to ask for them. Waiting patiently for another installment in this great story...
