    Reading this report makes me think of a newer western movie in the best regards: True Grit.

    Anna, I just wanted to thank you for a great read, and for inspiring me to ride to Alaska myself. I hope all is well with you. -Tryg

    Anna, I just reread your last post, wondering if that was the final chapter. Hoping you’ll give us one last update.
    Thanks for sharing your trip, and your story.

    Amazing RR- just binge read it over the weekend. In addition to being absolutely courageous you're an awesome writer. Hope to bump into you someday in the C-Ville area.

    Well the title says " Virginia to Alaska and back...so the final chapter has to at least get her back to Va. That plus she hasn't signed off or written a farewell means there is more to come. Looking forward to it.....

    Ah, how has it been 8 years since I started this story! There are only three more posts left to go and I do aim to get them done in 2020. I can't thank everyone here enough for following along all these years and inspiring me to keep writing. Stay tuned!

    Thanks Anna, we're all here when you are ready. I've been with you since the beginning and am glad you're still willing to finish it.

    I literally did one of those "Oh wow!" inhalations when I saw you posted here!

    This is one my favorite RR ever!
