Dear America,

It has been our privilege to have met such amazing people across this beautiful country. We would like to take some time and thank these individuals for their great contributions to our expeditions. The journey would not be possible without people like you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Happy Trails,
Buddy Backpacker
