I had already prepared a straw man post of my opening day, anticipating the emotion.  It started with the staggering number of miles between me and home.  I blathered about feeling overwhelmed.  I wrestled with how I was gonna do it.

When the moment actually arrived, I didn't have any of the emotions I anticipated.  I was calm and matter of fact.  There was a sense of peace.  I simply clipped into the pedals and started.  I had no sense of urgency.  I simply enjoyed the moment and there was alot to enjoy.
Our campsite was perfect.  Flat ground to pitch a tent...running water...a portajohn...what more can a man ask for...no wait, what is that 1 block away...a pub with a nice selection on tap...I'm gonna sleep good tonight.
