Three weeks and the thought of flying home is just amazing.

The last three weeks has been an unforgettable experience. 

I was able to push myself and endured some terrible weather. There were times I was not sure I was going to pull this trip off. 

Sometimes you don't know what you're made of until you try.

At the end of the day, the last two miles down Las Vegas Boulevard was one of the most accomplished times of my life, even if it was one of the scariest! 

Las Vegas Boulevard on a bike is not what I would call a smart move, but it's done and I couldn't be happier.

I can't wait to get back to family, friends and even work.  Life is too short not to try for what you have always wanted.  Even if you're not sure you can do it, trying is the best part! 

I hope the I was able to raise some awareness for BlueRibbons4Justice because they were the reason for this trip.

Please keep them and their mission in your thoughts. Thanks.
