rpk here-Just caught a glimpse of my last American sunset for the summer.  A very strange thought coming from someone who hasn’t ever seen anything past New Jersey and Washington state.

Much like when i’m doing a show, i never get nervous until right before places is called.  Well, we’ve been talking about this adventure for so long that it seems like now, on the eve of departure, places has been called.  And so begin the fluttering of belly butterflies.  Have a wonderful summer everyone.  See you all after one complete global circumnavigation.  The following is a picture of me being excited.
