well, that was awful

Not a good Divide attempt for me but I'm safe and sound back at home.  My fourth day off the bike and it's still painful to sit down.  I'll post a bit more later.

Friday afternoon we'll drive to Trinidad.  Saturday to Las Cruces.  Very early Sunday we'll head down to Antelope Wells, and that's the last time I'll be in a car for a while.

My tracker will go live on Sunday morning and you can follow along here.  As cell coverage allows I'll post some pics here, but this place will be pretty bare until August.

ready to go

Starting to get everything squared away to drop off the grid for two months.

Bike is ready to go.  A little lighter than I was planning on.  Just shy of 50 pounds once I load all the food on.

Lots of dogs this weekend.  Did some hide and seek with the SAR pups on Saturday.

And then got to hang with all these guys for a few days:

run - 14 miles, 2.5 hours

bike - 67 miles, seven hours

hike - 34 miles, 14 hours

the week

Decent week, starting to get all packed up for the trip which is taking a bit of time.

We'll leave Friday after work, and I hope to start pedaling north on Sunday.  Eleven hours south from our house to the border.  $100 will enjoy some solo time before driving 20 hours north to Banff to pick me up in a month.

run - 20 miles, three hours and 15 minutes

ride - 82 miles, eight hours

hike - 26 miles, nine hours

May numbers

Another decent month.  Rode over 1200 miles these past two months, hopefully it's enough.  You always want to have done more, but that's just the amount of time I had to work with.

run - 107 miles, 20 hours

ride - 564 miles, 56 hours

hike - 120 miles, 45.5 hours

From now until June 16 I'll probably alternate running and riding days.  Hope to start pedaling north from Antelope Wells on June 18.
