Kathleen Jones commented on Epilogue: privilege, mental health, environmental stewardship

I echo Scott's remarks regarding should you stay or should you go (an apt title). I feel about as conflicted as you though I enjoyed the journal very much.

I've chosen to stay home. Sometimes when I see others touring right now I'm really annoyed, other times not. There is no rationality to my reactions and they vary from day to day. It's mostly based on worry for them and for the communities they're traveling through. I'm glad to see though that most folks are aware of the ramifications of what they're doing, and are being respectful of themselves and others. What a crazy time.

Thanks so much for sharing this journal with us, Kevin. I enjoyed seeing this country again and envy your experience. I biked the North Cascades Highway 40 years ago ( a month after Mount Saint Helens went up, and the eastern highways were still covered in a layer of ash) and I’ve always hoped to go again some year.

And thanks too for your honesty in sharing so eloquently your reflections on your decision to go. It’s such a difficult time, and one with no easy answers.
