Day 33

Hello all from Shreveport, LA. Todays ride was uneventful for being my last day riding. I rode about 67 miles today to get to my hotel for the next 2 nights. The weather was cooler and cloudy today which made for a nice ride. I got into Shreveport about 3 this afternoon, checked in my hotel and went to the UPS store to look into shipping my bike back to Colorado. They didn't have a box for me today but should have one tomorrow. Todays ride was sad for me but happy at the same time. I never thought that I would get this far, I am glad that I attempted to ride from coast to coast. I will remember this trip for a long time. I am excited to get back home and see my family again, but I am extremely excited to be able to see and hold my new granddaughter Orly. Thank you again to everyone who helped me along my way getting me here to Shreveport. I hope that next year I can try to finish off what I started and make it to the Atlantic Ocean.

Till next time, Jochen

  1. I tried to post a comment earlier but I don't think it went through. I'm so impressed that you made it over 1600 miles. How exciting. Makes me want to do something exciting, too.
