Welcome home

Our man Buckwheat arrived home
in Skagway this morning.

Seven thousand miles.
Eleven months.
Miami Beach to the Bering Sea.
Walking, pedaling and paddling
every inch of the route.

A hundred kids left school
to escort him through town
and he received the kind of welcome
that only a cool small town
can provide.

Sleep well tonight, 'Wheat.
You've earned it.
