Day 293– 27th September 09

Posted by TravellingStrom on September 27, 2009

Sunday – Gila Bend, Arizona

After yesterday’s rest day I had some things I needed to get done today. First off was the blog, Friday was a long one so that took a fair amount of time to get done. I left Saturday as it was a shorty and could be done in the morning, same as today most likely 🙂

I also chased some more info on Mexico, the DFAT site was a bit scary(Department of Foreign Affairs) but as I was going to be cautious anyway, I felt nervous but OK with it.

My main concern will be to keep the bike safe, but until I get down there I have no idea what to expect with regards motels/hotels places to stay etc. It would be nice to park the bike safely and use foot to look around places, we shall see 🙂

Anyway, after a day of toil I went out for some dinner, I rode up and down and eventually decided on some BBQ chicken wings, nice tucker 🙂

After that, I went for a couple of beers, but I did not stay long, the new bar lady was making salsa and it made my eyes water, so I could not stay there any longer. Probably a good thing as I wanted to get an early start for the border in the morning. I finished off my book before getting some shut eye.

Just a note here, I am writing this prior to leaving on Monday morning, I have no idea of what internet services are going to be like, so this page may not be updated for a while. I am planning on going to Hermosillo as my first destination, assuming I am allowed in the country. Cheers TS

Day – 6 miles and 10 km
Trip – 37,896 miles and 60,988 km
