Things I’ve learned riding to the center of my American Universe:
Nothing worth telling anyone about is easy.
Life is 98% drudgery on your way to the highlights.
The good bits will always come, learn to appreciate the drudgery.
I also learned that the first center of the US, in Kansas, was the original, before making Alaska and Hawaii full states. It now serves as the center of the lower 48. So I’ve been to the two centers…how about you?
