  1. Alisa, I was SO happy to meet you at Voni’s~Glad you could get some paperwork done and rest before your TRUE adventure began!! Looking forward to following your trek and praying for GOOD weather and GOOD people (like Voni) all along your way!! The river road is Hwy 170~truly a scenic ride and voted one of the top 10 BEST scenic drivesin the USA! Plan to see you on your return trip in a few months!!
    April is very nice here with flowers blooming!! Vaya a Dios~~

  2. Thanks for all the amazing posts that you have made so far. I really enjoy following your progress.

    In today’s pictures I couldn’t help but notice that you had on a Scorpion Jacket. I have the identical jacket and it served me well from temps in the 40’s-90’s out west.

    Are you aware that there is a pouch in the back for your CamelBak and a place to feed the tube through the shoulder and a clip on the front? I found it much more comfortable on long days than wearing an additional pack plus it seemed to keep the water (and me) cooler in the direct sun.

  3. Thanks Margaret–nice to meet you, too. And thanks for the well wishes. Mexico is amazing, and I am having a safe and happy time.

  4. Hey Steve, Thanks for the tour on my (our) jacket. Indeed, the jacket is new to me for this trip, and while at one point I was aware of the space for the bladder, I’d forgotten until you reminded me. I got really used to the Camelbak this summer riding the TAT…My problem at the moment is that I have *no additional space* to put the Camelbak if I take it off. Heck, though< I might start singing a different tune once I get to the really hot weather!

    I went to your site…are you from New England as well? ~a

  5. Alisa,

    It was a pleasure meeting you at Paul and Voni’s. Hope your ride continues to go well! The DOM rock was from the movie Fandango, which was Kevin Costner’s first (if you don’t count him as a corpse in The Big Chill! ;-). Hope you got a good view of the B1 bombers flying over P&V’s as we were leaving..

    Happy Trails!
