I love brocolli, beans too, but veggies are hard to find in Texas unless they have been soaked in a deep fryer. I only passed through Ft. Davis. I must stop next time. Maybe April? Don't forget to ride the River Road. Pics please.

WNWT Day 16 & 17 mini-update

Haven't had time to sit down for full updates... but had a wonderful day of riding on Tuesday in the Big Bend area.



The camera on my phone really can't comprehend what it's trying to process. Did the Presidio to Big Bend river road along the Rio Grande (one of the top 10 scenic drives in America... I can believe it), stopped in Terlingua and had a beer with the locals on the front porch, ran down the Old Maverick road and saw Santa Elena canyon, went to a Star Party that night.

Wednesday I made the run from Fort Davis to Deming, NM. Got into some of the most desolate areas I've been in yet. Staying with inmate Jeff (buls4ever) in Deming. Fantastic host. We're going to do a loop in the mountains north of Deming today. On Friday I'll start heading west again with a stop in Tombstone, AZ for lunch (location of the OK Corral, etc).

Should have some time this weekend to get some more pictures posted and details shared... should hit 4000 miles for the trip today or tomorrow. Ride On!

Which begs another question; to wit: You (and everyone else on these ride reports) seem to eat pretty well on this trip. And by that I mean comfort food and lots of it. So unless you're forgetting to mention the P90X routine you do each morning, I'd think you might be gaining a few pounds. Or does being the saddle all day really burn that many calories

I do think riding, even road riding, does burn more than sitting at a desk. I'm probably not losing anything, but I'm staying pretty steady. Try to limit myself to just one "bad" meal a day. Otherwise it's granola bars, bananas, water, and a few crackers.

I'll do some push-ups and sit-ups a few times a week, but yeah, no work-outs.

Hi Gib........... I got him off to Portal AZ this AM in the Cave Creek Canyon and onto the dirt road up to the Chirikauwa... Chirikchuah.... you know those Geronimo indians... Natl Monument by Sunsites. So he is in the Grand Canyon state Girlfriend. When last I heard from him he was sitting down to lunch in Tombstone an hr ago.He MAY have had to shovel some snow to get there....Well I will let him tell that story. We had a great time in Deming and I hope he comes back some time.

THIS IS B.S***.................. We ate and drank until we dropped but I did make him ride his A** off. See pictures... the only WALKING we did was 500 yards into Palomas CH MX for a HUGE Mexican meal.

The truth is out there Kelly! No fooling us about the shape you are in. Mountain biking will be tough on you when you get back. Luckily for you many of the regular riders have been taking it easy as well. At least you are having a great time!

He's been EATING his way through the SW Barber, don't let him kid you.... He will probably need a 1200 Tiger next year. Hopefully GIRLFRIEND will recognize him when he gets to San Diego.

I was thinking this same thing!! I have to diet and work out for an hour a day to stay "not too fat"... I have never taken a ride longer than a week though....

Man, you guys are rough... I like to think of it more as "immersing myself into the culture, scenery, and culinary delights of the areas I've been riding through". At least that sounds a little better than "eating my way through the SW".

I really am going to get caught up on the ride report so stay tuned! Gotta figure a way to not link every freakin' picture, but it's hard to choose. The scenery has been outstanding the last few days.

Don't get me wrong - the food is probably a close second behind all of the scenery for reasons why I have to do something like this someday.

The scenery and adventure are by far the only reason for a trip like Kellys, the food is a distant third. Sometimes I get into a econo mode and eat cheap..... Macs/Wendys ect.....and use the savings to upgrade motels, like from Motel 6 to a Best West.Its hard to pass by many of those Texas BBQ joints though.
