We often forget that people actually read our journal (outside of family anyway). We're really just trying to document the physical and emotional journey we are taking together. After a rough couple of days, feeling a bit down and isolated, it was wonderful and astounding to check our email and find that we had so many encouraging comments from lots of people, many of whom we don't even know!
It did us both a world of good to read everyone's kind words and realize how much love and support is out there following us. Almost every day we bike for several hours and then we camp and prepare to do it again. Sometimes it is fun, sometimes it isn't. We're certainly not going to give up and quit when the going gets tough though. Thank you for helping us remember that we're on an epic journey!
Tyler left this by our last free-camp hoping that the right person would see it. We both felt it was fitting:
