Tallies and Finales

Hello again, a few months later, a few more experiences, a little more biking. Check out the updated photos!

Last week, I had the opportunity to revisit my AVODAH presentations. The interns at UW Hillel have meetings every week and occasionally bring in speakers from the community. I retold my story and this time, shared photos of the bicycle journey now completed.

I still feel as if there is much reflection to be had…but before we move on to new activities and the NEXT thing in life, I wanted to share a few final numbers with you from the journey:

3,176 miles of pavement, gravel and dirt crossed from D.C. to Newport Beach, CA

72 days crossing

14 states traversed

5 nights of paid lodging (i.e. 67 nights we stayed with friends and random hosts)

11,312 ft.  Highest elevation at Monarch Pass, CO

13 flat tires

16 planned speaking engagements in 9 different states

Over 300 people spoke to about AVODAH

Thank you for everything. I may continue to post as new reflections emerge, but for now, just remember, that ANYTHING is POSSIBLE!!! 🙂 Your next adventure is right around the corner. Try to continue being part of something that is greater, something that perpetuates the creation of positive action and energy.
