After well over 3000 miles of incredible experiences, hardships, triumphs, and adventures, the Freedom Skate is now coming to an end. I will skate into Santa Monica, CA on Wednesday, June 15th, at approximately 12:00 PM PST.

If this journey has inspired you to believe that you truly can do anything you set your mind to, then I would love for you to come out and celebrate with my crew and I at the finish! Could be a first opportunity to exercise that newly found belief! I have provided the basic information you need below. Dillon will be there filming for the documentary, so anyone who makes it out will be seen in the documentary. Also, Bob and I are working on setting up a LIVE cast for the end of the tour. We should be able to pull it off. If all goes well, it will air here on the website, beginning around 12:00 PM PST.

Celebrate with Us!

We’re asking anyone who wants to celebrate at the finish to meet us at the intersection of Ocean Avenue and Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica at 12:00 PM PST on Wednesday June 15th. There’s a sidewalk on the ocean side of the intersection, which I will be taking out to the ocean. It’s difficult to predict exact times on this skate, but we’ll do our best to be there right at noon. You can see the map of my last day’s skate here. The images below should make it easy enough to find:

  • Would love to be there… of course, the idea of an ocean has its own attractions. As you may recall, Monahans TX has the dunes, just no water to go with it. Glad you are making it safely and very best wishes for your efforts in Detroit.
