This was a great journey for us. Even when problems came up, we both soldiered on.
When we could'nt find a shower, or when the bus was acting up, or we could'nt find a place to stay,
and even when god punished us with 125 degree weather, nothing kept us down for long. We both think
our friendship was key to surviving these ten days.
We both were surprised at how much fun we had. Despite not having plans for
our destinations, we had no problem finding things to do. And usually the good times
found us (as you can see).
Some of the coolest times we had were on the open road just bullshitting
and seeing new scenes and driving in places we'd never been before.
On the final leg of the trip, we really noticed how quickly the last ten ass-kicking days
had flew by. We both knew that we had to do this again someday. Despite all of this, nothing
can describe the natural high you get when you finally complete a journey like this.
With Longview in site we both were wearing shit-eating grins. We knew our normal lives,
our ladies, and our own beds were just a few minutes away.
The journey was finally was coming to an end...
