The video is perfect and the music even better! A funny thing happened to me while watching it. I realized that, having been touched by the two Iowa pebbles that I found on the sands of Rye Beach, NH, that this was also MY "Summer 2008". Because every day that I checked the blog for updates I become more involved. Watching this video, I recognized not only you, but the people with you, and what you did with them, so that somehow even they are not complete strangers anymore. I knew where you were geographically and often emotionally all the way through this video. So thank you for the memories, the journey, the writing, the music, the experience. I will never forget you, and I am totally onboard for the next journey. I can hardly wait.
XOXOXOXOX

Wow, it was so great to watch bits of the entire journey and remember back to where it all began! What an amazing experience for you two and also for those of us that were along for the ride through this site -- Thanks for sharing.

You guys are amazing and I am so glad I had the opportunity for you to touch my lives. I will not forget that drive. Thanks for being great examples of courage.

Just watching the recap video, it's obvious that the impact you've made by reaching out to people on this adventure far exceeded your modest initial expectations. And that doesn't include the inspiration to those of us just following along at home. Nor does it include the positive effect of this experience on yourselves. So congratulations!

What an incredible journey, summed up perfectly by that last video. I must admit when you first hatched the idea it seemed unrealistic, bordering on impossible. But seeing you dive into the Atlantic Ocean in Maine and then the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco confimed that you did indeed accomplish your goal. Fortunately 90 percent of the feedback from people was positive but for the other 10 percent still wallowing in stranger land I have one thing to say. You try it. Congratulations, guys on an incredible accomplishment. And Nanci, with all due respect, I hope the next journey doesn't come until my son has made enough money to finance the trip.

I second what Brian's dad said about the 10%!

You two were the absolute highlight of my summer. I miss you.

What a journey!

It was a treat to follow along throughout your adventure and I really enjoyed this highlight reel. The chronological order was a nice touch as well.

Once you guys get back from Scotland...I want to hear even more about it!

Once again, great job!

Hi Guys!
I second Nanci's sentiment about following your journey on the new video & feeling like I knew the people in the pictures. : )

Thanks again for letting us share your journey. I'm looking forward to more adventures!
