After Justine left it was still too hot to ride so I caught a flick, saw Moonlight Kingdom. It was fantastic! Then I rode far as i could.
This was dinner…didn’t quite cut it!
By 2am I was dangerously tired. It got crazy cold in the AZ mountains. All of a sudden it was 60 out. It was so insanely dark too… I pulled over at one point to check directions and when I turned my bike off I couldn’t see a thing, except for the most beautiful star filled sky I’ve ever seen! I also saw one massive elk, and two groups of deer right off the road…that scared me into parking for the night.
This was my bed.
In a gas station parking lot. I slept with my helmet on for warmth and it turned it made and fantastic pillow! The cement was a bit unforgiving though… I slept in till about 5am and started Riding again. Saw my first sunrise in years!
Look close and you can probably see an airplane and windmills, it was so beautiful!
I took that pic about 30min ago. Now i’m in some nameless mountain town eating an omelette in a cute little local cafe. I’m gonna try to drive the 17hrs home today. We shall see…
This is the cafe..
