I too am late for this RR. Amazingly photographed and written. I fear that such a journey is highly improbable for me, but I really enjoyed living yours. Here I thought my wee little trip to Tn was a long one.....I am a rank amateur. Your wife reminds me of mine. Mine is always up for a new adventure...when we can. She seldom complains and is a photog like you are. Me I am just the driver/rider that gets us from one "oohhh STOP!!!" spot to another. Thank you for your efforts. Made my sick day from work much more livable!
