More Than I Can Chew?

Have I bitten off more than I can chew? Probably.

I have set off for epic birdwatching trip and am now near the New Mexico/ Mexico border. The plan is spend time here, then drive down through Mexico to San Blas in Nayarit, subsequently drive back across Mexico to shoot out into Texas. I then birdwatch in Corpus Christi before heading off to Charlotte NC to scrounge off Ben. Then drive back to San Francisco.

Seems like a good idea but whether the truck and I have the resilience remains to be seen.

I set off but after a few blocks I realize that I cannot make this trip and turn back home. I have forgotten my passport.

Home for the next 4 months!

I surge down to Southern California to pick up remnants of Route 66.

Famous movie made here.
You take my way

I love driving down U.S. back roads. The space is incredible, nothing but desert, scrub an d huge blue skies for hours.

It is cold but the heater has been working perfectly.
First of many Huevos Rancheros
Somewhere in the Mohave desert, which is very big.
Lots of snow

Go get ’em Ricky!
Died with his boots on I presume.
Yeeha!
Ancient and Modern
I love diners!
This with a gallon of coffee.
Huge

Anyway, you get the idea and after 5 days of semi roughing it I check in to a Motel in Socorro. I need a shower and an internet connection.

I wander across the road and try to eat this. I fail- too big.

So I am now clean and ready for the next stage which is obsessive birdwatching.

    Jeepers – you may need a bigger van; those plates look serious rations. Great train!
