Each covers a broad region of the country that we explored: eight or ten states in just 15-25 minutes!
Wed, 05 Aug 2015 07:00:39 +0000 traverse.us.com/?p=3336 I’m sitting down to start this last “Along the way” blog on our last night along the way—our last before we arrive back in Birch Bay, WA, tomorrow (on July 30). We’re both feeling slightly stunned that it’s over.
It still feels a bit like we’re just getting started; that is, until we look back at how much we’ve done and where we’ve been. Then it’s startling that it could only have been 14 months since we left.
One amazing gift I’ve gotten from this trip is waking up every day feeling: I just can’t wait to get out of bed and get into this day! I’ve always (OK, mostly) loved working, but I did kind of lose that can’t wait to get upfeeling towards the end there. Our year around the country has given that back to me.
