I can't tell you how I can express the emotions I'm experiencing right now. Part of me wants to celebrate, part wants to weep with happiness and/or sadness, but another simply wants to quietly reflect.
My great adventure has been successfully completed. I spent 52 days on my bike and covered 7 states and 3069 miles, totally self-supported. But more importantly, I gained great respect for so many blessings we Americans share. Please read my journal at www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/dean if you would like to learn more about my Southern Tier, 60th birthday experience.
Thanks for all of your kind and thoughtful comments from past posts. Dean

I scanned your website. I look forward to reading all of it. Congratulations on a job well done, and what I would guess would be a lifetime of memories.
I've followed your daily dairy via your updates and Janet's updates daily. I was captivated by the people you met along the way. I'm looking forward to attempting to duplicate what you've done day.
Congratulations my fellow cyclist. You're a real inspiration.

I want to thank you for letting us share in your adventure. I've been following your journal and have enjoyed it. I can only hope that someday I get the chance to do something similar.

Anybody with a bike named Maynard is already a champ in my book. Can't wait to read the entire blog.
I followed your journey on Crazyguy. After you recuperate I hope you will have time to flesh out the story. Well done.
Dean, congratulations on your successful journey, but more so, thank you for sharing it with us. It has been a great pleasure to follow your trip with you.

Fantastic journey - you inspired lots of us!
Way to go, OHB.
I too, have been reading your journal, I like you writing style. Have you thought of the possibility of a book?
I followed your trip and I'm really glad you made it. It will be something you'll talk about for the rest of your life. Job well done, with some fun thrown in congradulations.

I have enjoyed reading your journal too. I have to tell you though, you are not through. I am planning the ST next year because once I did the northern route it wan't enough. Then the coast. Now the goal is to do the whole perimeter. You will not be satisfied with only one long ride. I am using your journal to help me plan. thank you Dean.
