Default Discovering America

Scott:

If you put these into a book with all the pictures and your excellent writing skills, I think it would sell a LOT of copies. Great job. God's speed, blue skies, and tailwinds to you.

I'd say you pretty much discovered America 2016.

On another subject, this story is as compelling as Rinker Buck's Flight of Passage. I see your turn in the "Author's Corner" at Oshkosh coming.

Default Wanting more

Like everyone following your journey, I feel like I'm reading each chapter of a book as it's being written. When I realize that's all for now, I'm left with a hunger for more. Was that your plan? Leave them wanting more. Well, it's working! Dang it! It's August 24th. You must be home now, and are probably back in the classroom teaching the nation's youth. I hope you can share: "What did you do this summer?" with those young minds.

Double that for those of us in the STL metro-east. I sure hope you ran across Ed Shafer while you were here.

Scott,

What an inspiring story and amazing adventure you've shared. I grew up in central Illinois. Troy, Litchfield, and all the other small towns around there were home for so many years. We've travelled up old '66 a million times. Definitely brings back the memories. Thanks so much for sharing.

Tailwinds,
Dale

Sensational travelogue. Maybe at the end of it you can enlighten us about the somewhat cryptic comments above.

Smile Flyng Across America

I'm sure, as are all others, that recall Charles Garault, CBS, "On the Road Again" weekly segment. You should have been his teacher.
