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, …

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, …

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 …

Day 4: Breaking my 1st Commandment and a Gun Fight

I had a hard time sleeping last night.  I think this schedule of getting to sleep as soon as it gets dark messes me up.  In addition, while most of my body was warm, my face was cold and my nose got stuffy.  To add aggravation to this, my dislocated clavicle makes it hard to …

Day 3: A Natural Refuge

The alarm from my phone went off at 6:45.  This was one hour before sunrise.  In the cool morning of Seminole Canyon, I really wanted to stay in the sleeping bag a tad longer.  But knowing that it takes me about an hour to pack every morning, my nagging subconscious insisted that I needed to …
