November 24th, 2011

Although I am traveling as one person, I have not been alone.  There is no way the trip would have been as enjoyable without the help of dozens of friends new and old along the way.  On this (American) Thanksgiving, I’d like to take the opportunity to acknowledge and thank the people who have aided me in various ways.  I am indebted to you all.

Throughout this blog, I have almost always referred to people by their first names only, but I am breaking with that here because of the duplication of names.  Let me know if you’d like to have your name truncated.

Without further delay, and in no particular order, many thanks to:

Jon Davis, Stacy Spensley, Tyler Hicks-Wright, Angela Sylvester, David MacDonald, Todd Bechard, Ken Warren, Sean Leahy, Marcy Deering, Steve Cameron, Tom Keacher, Sue Keacher #1, Sue Keacher #2, Andrea Keacher, Anderson Spensley, Craig Robinson, Brennan Wall, John Shen, Scott Terek, Dave Johnson, Eli Hicks-Wright, Justin Durivage, Amanda Behm, Stuart Ford, Jared Farmer, Megan Farmer, Alex Halfpenny, Phil Scott, Doug in Maine, Dave in Maine, Bob Berube, Tom Mutak, Scott Molan, Simon Roberts, Whitney Carlson, Scot Fredo, Greg Selover, Dan Merrill, Andrew Vitalis, Anthony Maggio, Charley Walters, Chris Steller, Spencer in Las Vegas, Cosmin Munteanu, Greg Hicks, Travis Tomsu, Carolyn Sheehan, Tom Heely, Tyrone in Newfoundland, Brian McHugh, Nancy in Whitehorse, Art in Whitehorse, Sandy Morrison, Jim in Halifax, Felicia Yap, Leo Carter, Jamie Moore, Pete Lawrence, Dennis Leary, Sarah Aitchison, the grizzly bears in Denali NP, Matt Bahm, Kurt Stoodley, Craig Campbell, Alex in Toronto, Carol Bell-Smith, Erin Lannan, Kristen Yu, Wes Harrison, Mitch Cormier, Bill McGuire, Brian Kiefer, Vimal Patel, Steph Darwish, Mike Uzan, Adam Taylor, Valerie Hoknes, Terry Hoknes, Adrian Mizzi, Frankie Fuhrman, Phil Paschke, Sue Paschke, Masaru Oka, Adam Davis, Dave Kearsey,Chris Trilby, Katie Sieck, Greg Davis, Seamus O’Regan, Ted Lyman, Bridget Mayer, Barbara Beach, Joe in Alabama, Roy Nielsen, Trevor in Las Vegas, Bill in Connecticut, Amy in Alberta, Erin Bolton, Mike Doyle, Jon from the Wild, John Gross, Darren Wolfson, Troy Thompson, Glen Andresen, Aaron Sickman, Cory Effertz, Ryan Snyder, Catherine Snyder, Josh Rich, Karen Garcia, Blake Ingerslew, Jason Rodzik, Ted Wojtysiak, Todd O’Dell, Jerome Bergquist, Erik Martinson, Chris Vanderbeek, Kevin Kurtt…

…and everybody who has had conversations with me or played hockey with me along the way.

Where I've met friends is where I've been. To put this in perspective, each one of those little red things represents somewhere that I spent at least one night during the trip. (Click to enlarge)

If I forgot to list your name, I am very, very sorry, and I meant no offense.  I will try to keep this list updated as I discover omissions and complete the final month of the trip.

I’d also like to thank everybody who has offered assistance to me that I was not able to accept.

One last name-related tease.  I have a title for the book now, but you’ll have to wait until the final post of the trip to hear it. 🙂
