Currently in Marfa, enjoyed a burger & a couple of pints of local courtesy of a lovely Kiwi lady at Padres. Hiking tomorrow with a fellow TWT'er, plan to deliver some dog treats to Spirit on the way.

See y'all manana!

Me too - the jerky was awesome - there was not an abundance of eateries along the way.

We are sitting in Flatonia waiting on the UHaul repair truck to bring us TWO NEW TIRES for the trailer we had to rent. They looked fine when we did our walk around but ya never know. It could have been MUCH worse. There's a whole lot of empty spaces between here and Terlingua.

It went great! I punched a hole in my clutch cover out in the middle of the desert, but I fixed it.

350 miles of clean paved roads today, not bad!

Re: 2014 Uncle's Around the Bend, Desert Challenge, & Adventure Challenge: Mar 6-9, 2

Decided at 1:30 this morning to make the journey. Left the house at 9 and again at 9:30 and rolled in to Study Butte a little before 6. Camped out in my Redverz Condo at BB Resort. Great to see many old friends and some new ones at dinner this evening.

See y'all at breakfast, even though it ends before I normally get up. Looking forward to random riding tomorrow with the Austin crew and Adventure challenge Saturday.
