Day 48 - THE END. MEXICO!!
This is it. The final day! It wasn't too hard to find motivation this morning to get on the saddle. But in classic fashion, we realized we didn't have too far to pedal today so we milked the morning and slept in...  We said our goodbyes to Lilly and took of...

Day 47 - Elephant Butte to Las Cruces
This morning we hit a local diner for breakfast as we placed a recent ban on oatmeal. I'll begin by noting the differences between the trip when you're on route compared to off route... Elephant Butte was one of the first towns we hit that wasn't on the map...

Day 46 - Magdelina to Elephant Butte State Park
We left this morning headed for Elephant Butte State Park.  This was located on New Mexico's largest (and only??) lake.  The ride consisted of 41 miles of dirt, and another 40 of pave. The thing about NM is this... we were riding in the monsoonal month of A...

Day 45 - Pie Town to Magdelina
We awoke this morning and spent the AM hanging out with Mike.  This guy was awesome.  This was his third and final leg at the Divide (we met a lot of people who break the trip up into a 3 or 4 year adventure).  Mike looked like he could do the entire route ...

Day 44 - Grants to Pie Town
When we were planning these alternate routes to save some time, one of the stipulations was that we must make it to Pie Town.  Pie Town is kind of an iconic stop for divide riders. It sort of acts as the last stop before the rush to the finish begins.  We h...

Day 43 - Cuba to Grants
A very interesting beginning to today's ride... As we were leaving Cuba Cam was out in front. Riding on pavement allows your mind to wander a little bit more than if you were on dirt because you don't need to be overly careful where your tire line is becaus...

Day 42 - Horca to Cuba, NM
Horca is no more than 30 miles north of the New Mexico border, but last night's sleep felt like we were in Greenland. It must have been one of the coldest nights we had on the entire trip.  We woke up at six am still in the dark as the nearby mountains acte...

Day 41 - Back Country to Horca
This morning we woke up early to catch the sunrise (pics can be found on previous post). After the trips 41st bowl of grossmeal we began to tidy up the campsite.  It somehow took us 41 days of disgusting farts to finally dispose of the ungodly amount of apr...

Day 40 - Del Norte to back county camping at 10 000'
This morning required a lot of tent drying after the sprinkler fiasco.  Other than that, the three of us spent much of the day taking care of business (route planning, eating, groceries, blogging, eating light, etc...). We were told about a local spot that ...

Day 39 - Beaver Pass Campground to Del Norte
As the destination hints, we are now in the mesh of New Mexico and Colorado.  Everything down here has a Spanish name to it and if you were to look at the landscape you would think we are in NM.  As I am about to write this post I get the sensation that it ...
