Back in the garage for some much-deserved rest.Back to where we started.

Two hundred and sixty eight days.
Forty eight states and seven provinces.
Thirty seven thousand eight hundred and fifty miles on the nose.

One badass little car. 

Welcome to Las Vegas

*There are still two more posts to come after this to catch up on the past couple of weeks (which I should finish up in the next day or two); I'll put those in the right chronological order as I finish them... this just seemed like a post that I should put up as it happened, which was about 15 minutes ago. We're home.

Scott, Congratulations on your sublime accomplishment. I won't embarrass you with too much rambling of my poetic prose here, but know that I am incredibly happy for you, happy you are out of the way of [many] deer, but not too shocked overall... remarkable people do remarkable things all the time, so I expect nothing less : )
So when's the victory lap? --Better yet, when's the sequel: "Scott travels aimlessly around... planet Earth"? Cheers! Always, Merv

Welcome home Scott! I will really miss reading this blog, but we are all looking forward to seeing you soon and hearing about your adventures in person! What an amazing accomplishment. ..

Scott it remains my pleasure to have extended just the minor 0.0001% of the hospitality you have encountered along this journey.

Your storytelling along the way has been extraordinary, and all the more poignant for us, your audience, since so much of it was unexpected.

It's a bit of a let down, frankly, that the excursion is complete. As I posted a long time ago, I'm among the many who have been riding along vicariously with you.

But glad you now are home, safe & happy.

Best to you, always

We (that is Chance, Rio and me) still bask in the delight of our chance (leap at the chance!) meeting on the banks of the Rio Grande in Pilar, NM. As our separate, but universal human journeys continue to unfold, i do hope we will stay in touch!

Yes Scott, welcome home. I imagine your thoughts to be very different than when you left. You must have been altered from this terrific modern day voyage. How will you incorporate it in your next moves? I do hope you keep us all in the loop... perhaps with a different sort of blog.
I do hope that coming home feels terrific and not dull... were you ready to finish the last lap? I know you are going to marvel us with another fantastic journey into something, somewhere soon enough. I look forward to hearing all about it. And to reiterate what others have said, thank you for bringing us along with you and that lovely red machine.
