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.

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.

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
