That is a great analogy! Although we aren't riding along with Radioman, it sure feels like it sometimes.


I've posted a few times here and there in this thread, but I have followed along religiously ever since I discovered it many months ago. Thanks for everything! I hope (and know) you will thoroughly enjoy the last few pages of this chapter of your life, as well as seeing your friends and family back in the states.

Funny you should mention that. Sunday I had dinner with BSkye and she mentioned setting up dinner for the night of The One Show again.

Our very favorite Radioman returning will add to the fun.

Of course I'm assuming he will be there.

And Mark, you know where you need to be in June.

Don't you love how you haven't even gotten on the plane yet and some of us are already demanding your time......It's a bugger to be so popular.

Looking forward to seeing you when you return.

Thumb Thanks!

Been following along for most of the 29 months. My wife asks most nights "where is that guy now?".

Thanks for letting us live vicariously through your adventures.
I know that I am looking forward to the next chapter, no matter what that may be.
Enjoy the end of this journey and look forward to the start of the next one.

If you find yourself in the Midwest, know that at least a few of us have places for you to lay your head and adventures of our own to share with you.

End of a great RUN


It is and was absolutely great to follow your blog and am sorry to see that your fun run is coming to an end. I am from South Africa and enjoyed you SA part very much especially when you arrive at Cape Agulhas area, where I am from. Enjoy every minute of the remainder of your trip and I hope we will be able to keep track of you till you're back here in the USA. When you're in the Atlanta area please feel free to contact us if you feel like a great South African meal.

Safe travels

Mark - sad to see your RR is ending but happy that your journey is continuing, just in a different direction. I'm glad I got to ride with you for a spell. All the best. David

You're gonna be here before the holidays????

I'd better hurry up and clear a space on the floor so you can set up that fancy cot and you can rest up from the PHC ride.

I'm glad you've had a great ride and are finding your way to a new chapter!

Radioman Network!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you this musical tribute to the stunning announcement that Radioman's journey is coming to end. We kick it off we a celebration of the open road. We follow it with Radioman's northwest neighbors Heart, and dedicate it to the Long Journey both Chris and Mark have taken in their lives. We bid thee farewell with British music royalty singing The End. Here on the Radioman Network.

I'm sad that Radioman's great RR will be discontinued soon. Thank you Radioman so much for sharing. Wish you good luck in the next chapter of your life, be in good health, always surrounded by kindly people.

Kind Regards,

Hey Radioman

I've been lurking this thread for quite a while. I really enjoyed reading your stories and seeing photos of your travels. A true inspiration!
