Wow! Thanks for the update.
I've been following this RR since the beginning and this latest post may be my favorite.
Thanks for posting @ruffntuff
Thanks for continuing the report.
Great to read you again!!
Great chapter, Anna! Thanks for taking the time to go back and re-live it all, and share it with us.
Anna, how about a real time update? Are you still riding? Any other trips? Hope all is well.
I’ve been reading this wonderful report over the previous few weeks, whenever I had the free time and have been ecstatic when I could continue reading.
I’m only 30, but so much of this story brought up memories of my own past. I never think about the past, but it was refreshing to recall certain points of my own life I would never think back on. If that makes any sense...
Truly appreciate you sharing this very private slice of your life. I look forward to catching up on the story, whenever have the chance to update.
Hope all is well in current times.
Still the best pic. So long ago...
Interesting how a post every five or six years on a long neglected report will stir the blood of some inmates.
When written from the heart, it is timeless and soul stirring.
Totally agree. Been here since the start. This has been the best RR I have ever read. Felt like I was with her all the way (cleavage juice?). Some folks just don't get it, but that's OK by me... tp dd50
Whoa! I totally forgot about this one....glad you're still around Anna.
I discovered this thread well over a year ago and quickly read through it, and interestingly enough about a month ago a friend offered a 1986 Radian for cheap. Of course I bought it and remembered this thread shortly afterward. It's fun to know you took one of these around the US. Looking forward to updates when you have them Anna.
Also, I'm in the process of reading this book and it's very similar to your story:
Man, I miss this thread.
This ride report has certainly touched a lot of people. To me, it's sense of adventure, openness to experience, and sharing make it stand out. Great job, Anna! Journeys end, don't they? Even when we don't want them to. They just do. That's the curse of a super RR like this one......readers hang on every posting, pushing away the certain knowledge that one day the kill switch will be hit a last time, the side stand swung down, feet back on the ground, release the bars.........journey's end. It's been six years since the first post in this report. Anna brought us from Virginia to Alaska and back as far as Texas. She may or may not post about the ride from there to Virginia. I recall that in one of her last posts she remarked about how long ago this all was for her. Life continues after the ride.
Agree. This was not just an RR, but an Odyssey, a journey of life's need and determination to face the unknown, alone. Anna made us laugh and cry, with every new post. She showed us many different sides to her life, and carried us along with her, even though she was normally alone. I have followed from the beginning, and say to Anna, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey. tomp dd50
The post on your Grandparents is especially touching. Very honest from the heart.
Many of us can relate to the passing of loved ones...and the pain thrust upon us by the choices of others that resulted in the break up of families and destroyed social circles.
Yet we all have the capacity to choose our own path...to borrow/paraphrase a few quips by a famous contemporary speaker:
...our history does not have to determine our destiny.
...you do not have to be a victim...but can be a victor.
Wishing you well and continued healing.
With deep respect,
