The End

August 4th, 2009

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end

In New Mexico, I picked up Bob, a hitchhiker.  He was sui generis, a former Green Beret, and one hell of a headstrong man.  I drove 2200 miles in two days, engaged in what was perhaps one of the most bizarre conversations I’ve had in months.  Along the way, we were stopped by cops and were searched by a K-9 unit for drugs, on suspician that Bob was a wanted man.

On Thursday, I arrived in North Carolina, the final destination, the end of my journey, and the beginning of a new chapter in my life.  I cannot possibly write a single post that reflects my thoughts of the journey.  There were countless mad adventures that I could not write about on this blog – I will try writing a book about the trip down to the most minute details.  Stay tuned and stay hungry, my friends.

    I’ve been checking in since I talked to you a few months ago. Looks like you had a grand adventure. Good luck in you next one.

    What are your plans next? Are you going to get a job and work until you save up enough money to do it again?
    I want to quit my job too, I hate feeling like I have to get up every morning and like I am forced to work at something I hate. You should keep writing on your blog. Let us know what you are doing and give others tips to do the same as you have done.
    Congrats on the end!

    Certainly would love to read about all of the details that you have left out here. I am waiting for your book.

    This trip has left me with a lot to think about. But, I will always have the travel bug and the itch to just get up and go. In the end, it comes down to prioritizing what is most important in your life. If you value a life changing adventure, go for it. You will never regret your decision.
