    You look pooped! I bet it feels great to be home though. I can't believe some of those stats! You were gone for HOW LONG?! It doesn't feel like that for some reason.. then again I wasn't there with you :) Thanks for all the pics... it was like I got to take a short vacation to the coast... very cool! Now rest up!

    Thanks so much for the good wishes. The only down side to the second half of the tour was that I was by myself for most of the time. Being able to share the adventures with you guys made it seem not so lonely.

    Now, if I can only remember how to start blogging regularly again ... hmmm, it says "press any key to continue" ... where's the "any" key?
