The End

… for now. Considering I am still unable to put any weight on the front of my right foot, my trip has ended. I need to keep my foot clean and dry. Sticking it in a stinky boot and riding dirt roads all day is not going to do that. Sitting around a motel in Moab isn’t helping either. My foot just needs some time.

I’ve completed about 1950 miles of the trail. There is approximately 1700 miles I did not complete in Utah, Nevada and Oregon. I’d like to come back and complete them some time. They should take about 10 days.

My bro was nice enough to steal my truck from Urbana and drive out to Moab. We are on our way back to Illinois. Thanks for following my adventure. I’ll keep everybody updated on my foot and future plans of returning to complete the TAT.

    Sorry to hear that but I’m sure you made the right decision.

    Thanks for the blog!

    P.S. You might still want to consider wearing your helmet depending on which bro is driving that truck.

    Sorry to hear you had to cut it short, but at least you will be able to try again. Once you’re healed maybe we can get a few of us together for a Central IL ride!
