Tucker, the introspective yin to Glen's gregarious yang, was usually the first to launch the day's ride. He spoke of his own ap- proach to taking in the unknown America he would be passing through. While reticent to pry into the daily lives of others, he was also able to feed his gentle and intelligent curiosity about the folks who formed the fabric of each unique community.

As Tucker explained, the sojourn into a new town opened his eyes to the larger world of people beyond the east and west sides of the U.S., who live lives of determination and noble intent. His perspective on his own life, led within the construct of relative privilege and centrist/blue state persuasions, was enhanced by those who live outside of the headlines and whose voices are rarely captured in the public media. People had stories to share, and Tucker was a thoughtful listener.
