    Wow! What a journey. Thank you so much for sharing so much of it (good & bad).
    Oddly enough I stopped staying up to date with your RR when I started working 1/2 time. Sort of proves what you've alluded to more than once......

    Congratulations on completing your amazing journey and thank you for taking us along for the ride. The end of your trip report feels a lot like that empty feeling you get when a favorite tv show ends after a number of years. Take care and hope you pass through Denver again.

    Want to add my thanks Ed for the great, great ride report like no other, and that I appreciate, like all the others here, the huge amount of effort and talent that went into it.
    Every day I'd log in to your report to find new amazing tales, photos, food and wine, and, oh, did I mention beautiful women?
    Again, thank you, thank you!

    Ed,
    I will miss your reports. So glad I got to meet you in person. You inspired my own trip and for that, I thank you. Please call whenever you get to Colorado to see your brother.

    Wow, sad to see it all end but I'm sure that there will be more and better EdAdventures to come!!

    Yours are the only long running reports that I've actually read from start to finish. You just have a way to suck in the viewer/ reader with the "oh, well, what could possibly go wrong attitude".

    My wife and I are amateur wine tasters here in VA and we both enjoyed your travels very much. Wish that I would have been reading more in real time as I would have loved to have met you on the Parkway somewhere.

    Best of luck to you in the future and ride safe!!!

    I'll ad my thanks for the great read. It's been fun to follow along, and to have been a small part of your journey. The New York plaque and Tam's drawing will always keep you both in our hears and memories.

    Drop by the next time you're in my area. I probably still owe you a beer or two.

    It says "He said he plans is to earn some money before heading back out into the world. There are sections of South America, Africa, Indonesia and Japan he said he wants to explore."

    :clap

    Good luck, looking forward to more adventures on your BMX!

    Late to wishing you well with ending your 800 days RTW trip.. but while I was in Lima Peru few weeks back, my Colombian gf and I was browsing through the feria market and I found a chimay beer then paid for it.. at the time I wasn't sure which color you liked better but it was brown and I would find out that its new.. anyway, I drank to celebrate your ending :thumb
