Journey's End

I finally managed to go back and finish my Skyline Drive / Blue Ride Parkway trip. It really felt good to finish this trip. The 80 unfinished miles west of Asheville, NC had been eating away at me for a while. I've been sitting here trying to think of a way to express why I enjoy going on adventures. But then I realized that everything I would want to say has been said long ago, by people far smarter than me. So I will skip the long writeup and simply introduce two of my all time favorite quotes: We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we first started, and to know that place for the first time. --- T. S. Elliot Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do --- Mark Twain
