I look forward to whatever thoughts and pictures you are able to post. It has been very inspiring to vicariously ride with you. I am preparing for my first multi-day trip and posts like yours to Blue Hills above are very good advice.FYI
I'm about to head into Mexico where my internet coverage is an unknown quantity. Don't be surprised if there's no updates for a while, or if they become sporadic.
I'll keep writing ( journal keeping is a really good habit and very enjoyable, I find!) but I may not be able to post.
There are many beautiful places and many roads. It is a shame there are not more cyclists taking advantage of them. I hope you are able to return sometime.Day 106, Friday Dec 27, Brackettville to Del Rio 54km
Before I leave Texas, I have to say what a fantastic place it is!! I rode into Texas on December 08 and I'll be leaving 20 days later - and I've still only seen a tiny piece of the State! It's huge!!
I loved it, but then again I've wanted to visit for a long time.
Texans appear to be genuinely friendly....
Sorry to read you're in hospital, especially at this time of the year. Hoping it's nothing serious.Lying in hospital and I have caught up. The pictures of Mexico are very different to Texas, strange how a man-made border has different scenery on either side, or that’s my perception after reading the entries. I’m so glad that the ordinary people continue to be pleasant.
In one you mentioned your trousers had worn out, did you manage to find replacement? I must be boarded going down to that level of detail!
