I am sitting in a Starbucks in West Haven, Connecticut. I have been looking for jobs and apartments in Milwaukee, the reality is setting in that I have to get back to a “normal” existence. I have to say that it will probably be more comforting when the time comes.
I will be able to make it to the end of the regular MLB baseball season. Unfortunately, I probably will not be able to make it much further than that. I am beginning to accept that fact. It has been a good run and I have plenty or stories and memories. I hope I am not disappointing anyone, I have just enough money to finish the regular season. It is what it is… I look at the bright side, I have gone to a baseball game in all the continental 48 states, by the end of next week I will have gone to each of the MLB stadiums, the College World Series, the American Legion World Series, the Little League World Series, the MLB All Star game, four Opening Days (Padres, Angels, Dodgers, Giants), I have met so many wonderful people, I have been all over the news and newspapers.
I am amazed I have gotten this far. I hope it will help on a resume… I have gained significant insight, about the country, about baseball, and about myself. I am very pleased that my car has been so reliable, (thank you Lexus! I also just knocked on wood), I can say that if Starbucks ever needs to know about any of their stores, they call me. I have been to more than my fair share! I will miss my routines, even sleeping in the car, it is my home and I know where every thing is…
I am going to a game in New York City tonight, a Mets game, it is September 11th. My thoughts go to the families that lost someone on that tragic day, 13 years ago. I have been blessed to be able to do what I have.

I am sorry to see you finish your journey. I have read your stories almost every day. I may have missed a day or two but always caught up. I am very proud of your accomplishments & a little envious. I will miss your posts. But I am confident that you will find a perfect job to see you through until you retire.
Thank you Heidi, I have always appreciated you kind words and support!
So you will not be able to attend or afford and playoff games. Expensive I know but I thought you were going through the World Series John, but probably low on money. It’s been a great journey for you my friend, and we enjoyed reading it.
