Here we are 51 miles do the finish line. Had an awesome ride up to the viewpoint out of The Dalles.
Dean and I were the first two to arrive with our single belt drive machines. On the way after this to a nice lunch stop.
All riders them staged three miles from the finish line.
From here we all drove to the Skamania Lodge over the finish line! We made it! 2857 miles on the little Excelsior. Wow!
Hard to put into words the emotions I had when crossing the line. I cried with joy I made it. The most difficult and challenging endeavor I have embarked on. Now to try and “go back to a normal” lifestyle.
I will follow up on this blog in a few days with some final thoughts.
Thank you all for the support and positive karma; it has helped keeping me motivated.
