we left lordsberg nm and backtracked the 18 miles west i needed to cover. it was 57 degrees so for the first time we had wind jackets on. we had a long downhill, it was great! all the way into town. we then jumped on the i-10 to demming nm, the interstate was not bad, wide shoulder and a tailwind.
we pushed on to a late lunch and then the wind started to howl, right on our backs, although it had gotted hot and we had 4 flat tires, we were really clicking off miles. when i turned into hotel, we had covered 82 miles. big day. my friend bob weeks got in last night and a few more friends tonight. we push on!
