I would like to thank America. All of it and all of its people. As a nation you have some extraordinary qualities and Americans are a very special people. I was touched by your generosity, politeness and overwhelming friendship.
I found the same to be the case when I rode coast to coast in 2010 Gary. Like you I wandered around some, covering 6500 miles in four weeks. It is an amazing country populated by great people.
