Brett, i would be interested in your thoughts on merging back into " normal life" as time goes by? I have been following along for some time and wondered about a "let down" of sorts . What you have been doing is a desire most of us have in the back of our mind. I have taken a 3 month bicycle trip with my brother from Maine to Key west and 2 shorter trips of 1,000 miles also . I am retired but find myself constantly back in those places in my mind . I have been riding motorcycles for 44 years but have only managed 2 or 3 weeks at a time by motorcycle. I realize it may take some time to "experience" what "so called normal" life feels like again, but would be interested in your thoughts . How has it changed you and your expectations of life and yourself?
