Ever the adventurer, I said, "Just think of all we are seeing that we would never see if not for this!" I like to quote Louis L'Amour in times like these, and add:
The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast, and you miss all you are traveling for.One actually needs another pronoid to be traveling with you to appreciate that.
But, we are home now, the "end of the trail" for now, and with much for which to be grateful on this trail.
