I can give you a lengthy list of hundreds of reasons why it would be a good idea to go home. Go home now...and forget the trouble of trying to make this coast to coast to coast thing work. Tony, how will you pay your bills? How could your body possibly endure the miles, weather, and stress? Why would you choose to leave your wife and kids Tony? ...after all, they deserve to have you home with them...right?!?
When I was deciding whether or not to join the Army as a 17 year old young man, I sat down and made a list. On the left side of the paper I wrote Pro's, and on the right side I wrote Con's. For two months I contemplated the decision and jotted notes on each side of the paper. I asked all my friends and family to give me their opinions, so I could have even further guidance. Once I was certain I had the proper guidance and the support from everyone who meant something to me...I decided to join the Army to serve my country. This is how many people approach life altering decisions, and it is an honorable way to do so. My decision today was not reached through these respectable means.
