All good things must come to an end … or must they?
By Paula O’Kray
Wow, what a great adventure, and I, too, am a little sad that it’s over. I am so happy to have been able to share it with you. The idea, the preparation, the anticipation, the agony and the ecstasy.
What happened in the weeks that followed my return? Well, I have to say it was a bit difficult assimilating back into “normal” life. Our morning meetings on the ride always began with basic information. What number day of the ride it was, what date on the calendar it was, and what day of the week it was “in the real world.” We actually used that phrase, because after so many days on the road, it all became a blur, and we knew we were no longer part of what most people would refer to as normal.
No, waking up before dawn to ride 300 to 400 miles each day at 80 mph with a group of women on motorcycles is definitely not normal.
