I told him about how I felt about the country and how Cooper and I were going to fmd out what was out there, how I was going to work my way across the country and how we were going to live with the people at home where their hearts were. Also, I made sure he knew that I didn't want any money from the magazine and that this was not my idea to contact National Geographic: a professor had suggested that I get in touch with them since I might someday share what I found out about America, if I ever made it.
To me. Cooper brought the same joy as seeing a beautiful lady, or a soaring falcon, or a little baby saying "Da da" for the first time. 1 loved Cooper, my forever friend, and he loved me. The trees were lit moon-blue by the clear skies of October 14, our last night in the secure arms of civilization. My insides boiled with excitement: we were ready! Morning came and whether I slept or not I don't recall. Cooper had slept inside the house so I could be sure he didn't take off with one of his many girl friends.
All the things we had ever wanted to say to each other, or do for each other in the past, now demanded to be said and done. We waited for the emotional curtain to be opened between us and for the words to come, but they didn't. They couldn't. Finally, the long drawn-out miles were walked by the seven of us. The moment came for me to walk west into the winter and all of America, and for them to drive home to Connecticut. We stood on a suburban lawn surrounded by piles of leaves. My little sisters cried because they were going to miss their good buddy.
