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 …

Day 2: Starry Night – Split Personality

Last night I slept in my tent without putting the rain fly on.  The mesh that covers the dome of the tent let me go to sleep watching the stars come through, in a moonless sky.  The weather was just warm enough so that I could sleep on top of the sleeping bag.  However, as …

2013 Crossing Deserts: Day One Roads Less travelled

By  some miraculous action there is WIFI reaching my campsite. I traveled over 380 miles to get here, Seminole Canyon.  As the sun sets, I think back to the start of this Journey, less than 10 hours ago.  I had barely slept six hours, after frantically trying to get all my stuff packed last night.  …

The final stretch: Funding needs a boost

It is now less than 48 hours before I leave.  I think I have enough of the trip laid out for me to feel comfortable with what lays ahead of me.  The new sleeping bag, which is rated 0-18F arrived today.  Wow, it is massive, so my estimation from the web site were way off. …

Riding Through Deserts – 2 nights before departure

I find myself 2 nights away from this year’s trip.  It feels so weird that I am just starting to write about this trip.  Usually I would have been writing and fretting over the journey weeks in advance.  Now, things seem to be more sedate.  I am just wondering if after the Alaska trip last …

Down (again)

Adventure travel is not supposed to be this way. Not in my book. I am sitting at the BMW dealership in Albuquerque, NM, waiting on news. For the second time in this trip, the clutch system seems to have some kind of fault. I know that God is ordaining my days, but this is challenging. …
