Sorry it’s been so long since the last update, I hope no one was nail-biting wondering if they’d made it.
The guys are home safe, and back into the swing of things. I’ve talked to my dad a few times since they’ve been back, and we’re planning a “book meeting” for some time in the near future.
What comes next is a bit of a treat. I met a guy named Dane Brown at an event called Barcamp, and again at Casecamp, where I talked about this site. He said that his dad had done the same route years ago, and his sister had written a short story about their ride.
Well, the author of that short story, Laena Brown, has given me permission to publish it here. By the sounds of things, there’s quite a bit of contrast between the ride my dad took this year, and the ride their dad took all those years ago. No support truck, no tent, and next to no money.
Laena’s story is in the next post.
