Estimated Time of Arrival

Hi all,

I should get back to the starting point (the base of the South Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge) sometime around 1pm - 3pm, tomorrow, Saturday, November 14. If I'm completely late, I'll phone my brother, Rich, or sister, Bev (whoever I can get first) to let them know.

In another day or so, I'll post the final daily blogs, sum up the experience, and answer any questions anyone has. Oh, I also have a bunch of videos to post, and I'll also update the trip's Google Maps, too.

Thanks for following along! It's been an incredible experience - an experience of a lifetime, and it was nice to have company along the way.

Cheerios! (crunch, crunch)

Congrats, Don! I'm the guy on the Trek that you chatted with at the far N end of Hwy 1 this week. Near where my blog icon was taken. I'm looking forward to reading your blog... but 8 months of blogging might take a few days to catch up on! Anyway, good luck decompressing and with whatever can possibly follow such an adventure.

Hi Mark(?): Thanks! Have fun reading the blog. It might at times be a bit tedious, but there's a pretty fair sprinkling of the good stuff in there, too. Cheerios! (crunch, crunch) ;~Don

Hi Leslie: A very heartfelt 'Thank you!' I think of the five of you, and all of a sudden, I find I'm smiling. Take care, and I promise I'll stay in touch. Any time you're out this way (to the SF Bay Area), let me know!! ;~Don

Congratulation on a safe and successful journey. What an amazing cyclist you are. I've followed your journey most of the way, chronicled much of it in my Cycling Experiences... Blog and kept readers at the 'BentRider Online & Catrike Message Boards informed of your progress. We look forward to your book. Thanks for sharing. --jim artis @ http://cyclingexperiences.com/

Hi Don!

Okay, I have managed to read the WHOLE THING and I was enthralled the whole time. You communicate an upbeat charm that makes for pleasant reading.

Now, I know you're probably tired of the Blog Grind, but we are all still waiting breathle... no! I can't resist! We are all shivering with antici... PATION! to read about the last couple days (Arcata to SF).

-Mark

Hi Mike, Jim, and Mark: Thank you, all! The final entries are coming soon - hopefully today (Sat, Nov 21). It's been one hell of a ride, and/but I'm sad/glad it's over. Let me know if you have any questions (and that goes to everyone), and I'll respond. With answers, even! ;~Don
