The Final Countdown!

Hello to all,

Our 1106 day adventure is coming to an end. We have 24 days left. We will ride into Decorah on June 30th and then we start our search for jobs and reality. No worries.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to all, from every corner of the globe for the kindness, support, hospitality and generosity we have received during the last 3 years.

We are thankful for
thumbs up
friendly honks of the horns
helicopter ride
sushi platter
countless beers that were purchased for me
Daytona 500
all those who joined in the making of our 3 years of memories
cash gifts for our daily living
sleeping the waterfall
all the Rotary meetings and presentations
fishing lessons
mountain climbing and rock climbing
maps and directions

We want to very specifically thank our families and friends for their prayers and support during our journey.

With only 24 days left we have to finish strong. You can follow us using our website with the global positioning tracker. You can come on Grabawwr and join us for the last full week of riding. You can ride with us as we come into Decorah on the 30th of June.

Here is a link to our TV interview mentioned below in the newsletter. You may have already checked it out.

We have started the writing of the book, so stay tuned for the "Rest of the Story"
