A few thoughts as we near the 2,000 mile mark. The adventurer savors every pedal of the exhausting bicycle ride from Fairbanks to San Francisco. That is when he's not worried about logging trucks, black bear and violent weather. He avoided the dangerous traffic and pretty much all of his other concerns to successfully navigate the last 2,000 miles. All that lies ahead is the jagged Pacific coast of California. When he reaches San Fran, he will complete a line stretching from Fairbanks, AK to San Francisco, CA to Washington, DC. 'Try not to get too far ahead of yourself', I think to myself as I dream of a final destination circling the globe, 'Remember the trick you learned on your first long distance bicycle tour in Japan - focus only on each moment, and do the best you can.'
