We did it. We made it. We’re Here now, when we used to be There. I can’t lie, it’s a real good feeling. Wyoming was great, although we didn’t see a rodeo. Idaho was great in its own very special way. Oregon is Something Else, a place outside of everything Else, something neither of us have ever seen before. There’s Mystery here, older than anything we’ve hitherto experienced. Will we solve it? Only time will tell. Meantime, the Daily Miltonian will continue, for Philadelphia — where Alex remains, for Portland, where I now reside, and for the rest of America, all those beautiful people we met along the way to whom we will remain faithful. It’s our country, after all. Let’s make it something wonderful.
