  9. James,

    It's been 190 days since our parting and I've been reading your travel log ever since. Once you survived South Dakota, I knew you'd be okay...we're the resilient type after all. I finished my trip on October 2nd at beach 1 in La Push, WA. It was cold, windy, and absolutely beautiful. There were seagulls there to greet me, and I finally watched the sun set over the Pacific through an overcast sky.

    I'll never forget you telling me how much I'd enjoy the country west of Billings, MT and how right you were! I remember being simultaneously blown away and filled with dread at the first sight of the Rockies that sultry day and then there you were, under an I-90 overpass with encouraging words and friendly company to get me through it once again. And yes, my mom is cute--she's beautiful in fact.

    I've since moved to Austin, TX to tend the bar and cook at my friend's new gastropub and I'm loving it here. I'm saving up for the next adventure, since there should always be one of those in mind...But congratulations once again, companion of the road. I imagine you'll benefit from the many lessons of the trip and the perspective gained from all those meaningful partings and experiences. Feel free to contact me at anthonynicaj@gmail.com. So long, James.

  10. Help. I'm seriously considering making this trek in 2019. Would love info on Jame's Journey - Blog but only finding entries as his walk drew to a close. Please, if anyone reads this, I'd like to make contact with him. Thanks. Al.Ignace@gmail.com
