The Ride Home – In Two Day

Sleeping in Balmorhea was like sleeping under a bright light.  The full moon covered everything with a layer of pale silver.  When I woke up, the sun was starting to peek out of the East, behind one of the mountains.  Yesterday morning was the last camping morning.  So, I took my time and prepared my …

The final stretch – almost

Yesterday was essentially a driving day.  My route would have taken me East of Albuquerque, over the Sandia Mountains.  However, once again, temperature played a role, and I had to rethink my way to Midland.  So, instead, I took IH 25 to Socorro, going South instead of East, and from there, on beautiful 380 towards …

A day in New Mexico: encounters of the unexpected kind

I did not write yesterday primarily because I was tired, but also, because there was not much to report on.  I left Moab a bit later than I wanted to, mainly because the morning temperatures in Monticello, UT, and Cortez, CO, were being reported in the 30s.  Given that it had rained the night before, …

Starting the Long Way Back Home

Let me start by asking you to consider making a donation tonight.  Here are the donation links for IJM and the Polaris Project.  I have reached they half way point of my journey, but their work seems never ending. Tomorrow morning I embark on the first leg of the journey home.  I will be riding …

A Crown Jewel and a Small Tail of the Dragon

This is starting to sound like a broken record, or like we would say in Guatemala. a scratched disc.  So here it goes: “What a difference a day makes” or in this case, “What a difference a few hours make”.  I awakened in another funk. Pretty down with the weather and the seeming lack of …

Getting to the Middle of the Journey

I skipped writing yesterday because not much of consequence happened.  I basically tried to sit tight in Page, but the wandering spirit kept calling, so I made an attempt to ride over to the Navajo National Monument [since it is run by the Navajo, the Feds cannot keep them from running it 🙂 ]  However, …

Changing plans and feeling like quitting

With only 180 or so miles to Marble Canyon, the plan for today had been to sleep in a bit later, have breakfast, and spend some time exploring the Homolovi ruins, before taking off.  However, I did not sleep too well.  My dislocated right collar bone keeps me from sleeping on my side for long, …

From South to North

This is where I start losing count.  I think it is day five, but …  It was great to sleep at the hotel last night.  Not only was the bed warm, spacious, and soft,  I did not have to pack tent, and all the sleeping stuff in the morning.  This meat that I was ready …
