Well...the trip is indeed completed and I have returned to the west coast.
I just wanted to say that meeting and hanging out with both S-Dog and Ian was an incredible experience. They are both generous and gracious humans in
addition to the silliness and intelligence they so often display on the boards. I dare say that (as far as the male gender is concerned...
could not have been two individuals that I would have rathered have had the privilige of traveling with.
As well as the individuals we met along the way demonstrated that ATS is indeed a group of sincere individuals, while sincerity in our paranoia is at
worst a given, the sincerity of familial and friendly attitudes was an unexpected constant displayed by each of the members we stopped by to see.
I sincerely thank everyone whom I met and was alotted the oppurtunity to spend time with and as well everyone whom has followed our journey...ATS
Now, sappiness aside, here are a few more pictures to round out the thread (though I am regretful that pictures of the Ninja Restaurant were not
taken; an incredible experience...despite a certain jackassery that had the three of us rolling our eyes prolificly...)
The Statue of Liberty is indeed real and not a holographic representation of an unfortunately diluted concept...
The beginning of the start at Ground Zero. I am necessarily conflicted with my experience (albeit brief) in person as it sort of made all that was
observed from afar more real.
And a few pictures from 35,000 feet...
And I end with what I consider my favorite picture of the trip...
