The long road has almost come to an end. Weâ€™re sitting here, at Steve momâ€™s place in Dillon, Sunday afternoon, with only an hour and forty-five minutes from home and the completion of the on the road portion of The World By Road Expedition. Weâ€™ll be making our way to Denver mid-day, Monday. Just the thought of the end of the road is a beyond eerie feeling, so I havenâ€™t a clue whatâ€™s going on in Shoppmanâ€™s mind, for this has been his life for the last 29 months. Itâ€™s been an incredible ride, and has been an amazing experience. Blogs on the finale will be up soon, put first on to the week in review.

Nels’ Notes: Nomadic Wandering Shenanigans June 26-July 3, 2009

Miles, upon miles, upon miles. Miles in the rearview mirror. That, for sure, was the theme of this week, as we traveled from Valdez, Alaska to Edmonton, Alberta. That is a haul, spanning close to 2,000 miles.
We spent the weekend at the wonderful Brookside Inn Bed and Breakfast, and were graciously accommodated by hosts Jerry and Susie. We had some great meals and conversations with them, and were beyond lucky that they had an abundance of halibut. Home cooked meals are never taken for granted by anyone on the crew.
