We're back, though reluctant to leave our road adventure behind. It was an incredible experience, filled with lots of unexpected historically significant side trips, detours, good humor and amazing comraderie.
We still can't believe our luck with the great group of folks who participated, the number of car breakdowns that never slowed us down, nor the dozens of folks across the U.S. who came seemingly out of the woodwork to act as our personal guides to some remote, but significant destination...places the group would NEVER had a clue existed.
We followed much of the same route as George Schuster (winner of the Great Race), drove into railroad tunnels he went through, followed along desert tracks that he followed, astounded at our good luck with the weather (for the most part) and the open arms that welcomed us on our cross-country journey.
