I find it amazing that an American makes a trip around the world and it's received as though he went to the moon and back. Are we really that isolated from the rest of the world?

Its not the same as flying to the moon and back but its better than just tootling around town. If its cake, you go do it then.

Damn straight. Riding solo coast-to-coast across any ONE continent would be noteworthy.
