We made it


One forgets how much of a mission it is to get here… I guess thats a good thing.

I left Stockholm on Thursday the 3rd, had charismatic night in London and then met up with the other Fred in NYC.

We made a late arrival in San Jose that night and passed out at the Hampton Inn. The next morning we embarked on the final leg of our journey to the happy place.
