So this is it. One more night on the road, and then I will ride back home. "how does it feel?" "what will you do next?" and other questions I have gotten in the past few weeks...... Still in the middle of all of them, with no defined answer. Just going with the moments and enjoying this final leg of my travels.

For those in Portland who want to see me upon arrival, I have decided to stop just up the road at the starbucks (16398 SW Boones Ferry Road, Lake Oswego- near New Zupans). Sunday Dec 15th at 1:30PM. Then a short ride the final mile to my house!! Nothing formal, just the opportunity for friends that were there when I left to say hello!! 926 days on this journey is coming to a close!

For anyone wanting to get out and ride the last bit. I will be stopping for brunch in McMinnville (location to be determined!) at about 11;15 or so! Put on your warm gear and come for a ride!

Glad your back safe and sound.

Hi Mark. Have been following your adventure since you started with Sam "Idaho Sam" awhile back. It has been great that you shared your feelings and experience with us. Look for to meeting you in future riding the Great Northwest. Be safe.

I couldn't decide which joke to use, so I just won't quote this.

Have a great ride Home Radioman,
thanks for sharing your life and your ride. I have always thought that God has a special place in his heart for those who have helped a loved one through the most difficult of times.
Thanks for reminding us that the Most special places are the people and families that we get to share our life's with, both at home and abroad.

P.S. One of the odd things that stood out to me as I rode home after being gone a while was when I turned off the GPS because I knew where everything was.

Ready for the next Chapter
