SAUSALITO, Calif.--At last, I'm home. After 25 days, 4,891 miles and a huge number of motels, Road Trip 2007 is over.
I can barely type at this point, but it has been an amazing run. I was in six states (California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado--even if the latter was only for about 30 seconds at Four Corners), several national parks, some great museums, and I got to look at a heck of a lot of airplanes.
Along the way, I went to three hot springs, ate a whole lot of really bad food, listened to more than 1,000 songs on my iPod, fought hard to find good Internet connectivity, and did so much more.
The very last thing I did before I got home was stop in for a tour of the construction of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge. This is going to be a truly world-class bridge, the world's largest self-anchoring span and a wonderful addition to the culture of the San Francisco Bay Area. Stay tuned for a full story and gallery on Monday.
In the meantime, I thank all of you for reading my stories, looking at my photos and contacting me via e-mail and talkback on stories. There will be a few follow-up pieces over the next few days, but really, this is it.
