1000 miles today!

Friday, March 27th – this morning we celebrated our first 1000 miles. We are now in Texas and after surviving the rough traffic of El Paso, we are back into the countryside. Tonight, we are spending the night in Sierra Blanca Historical Lodge and it is good to be indoor since the wind is blowing hard (gusts up to 40 knots). Today was challenging, we biked more than 60 miles with a cross wind and into a sand storm. It was a relief to get to the motel and enjoy a hot shower!

Queens’ dinner: sautéed garlic, ginger and shrimps on shrimp flavor ramen noodles in a motel room in rural Texas
My road hobby is to look for license plates on the side of the road, mostly Noreen finds them and I get really excited. Today was Alabama!
