I saw Padres, didn't get to go though.. Pretty sure I met your buddy in the Lost Horse Saloon though! Lol. The locals says he plays it pretty fair down there though!

Alright! Now that I have found some more Wifi at a McDonalds in Santa Fe Ill give a little update. After I visited the Carlsbad Cavers I decided a roof over my head and a shower would be radical. So I hoped on Couchsurfer and luckily found some awesome dudes that were willing to host me for the night. Its really cool that people are willing to open their doors to a random stranger. I ended up having an awesome time and stayed another night. They had a little get together so I got to meet a bunch of their friends and have a good time with everyone. The following day they took me to a local spot called Sitting Bulls falls which was an amazing spring fed waterfall and pool. We hiked to the top and found the most epic patch of blackberries, I think I ate my weight in those things lol. Cant even express my gratitude for these guys. Awesome people.

So I left Carlsbad heading for Albuquerque, I rode through the Lincoln National Forest and a city called Cloudcroft. Beautiful ride, I just love that felling that you are part of the element your riding through. The wind gushing against you, all the smells you intake and just being surrounded by pure beauty. This is why I ride! Along the way I made sure to stop by the beautiful White Sands of New Mexico. This place was AWESOME! Didn't get to spend much time there but I really enjoyed just walking around barefoot on some soft sand.

I was worn out and beat up, but the journey continued into the city of Truth or Consequences where I stayed for the night. Albuquerque was just to far and I ran out of daylight. As I pulled into the town looking for a place to stay I saw a sign for some hot springs, exactly what I needed! Stopped in and paid 6$ to soak and relax in 107 degree water. Such a cleansing feeling. Leaving there I hopped on my free campsites app and found a good spot to camp. This was my first night camping by myself and I really enjoyed it. Very relaxing just sitting underneath that Milky Way watching shooting stars go by all night. Made a can of beans that was the best thing ever, played a little Harmonica and just hung out. When your alone you have lots of time to think and reflect, so I got brought back to this time a few years ago watching a movie called Wanderlust. There was a quote that I really enjoyed when it was said. Funny as if you've never seen it, Jennifer Anniston and Paul Rudd leave the city and wind up at a hippie commune and yada yada.. They are walking through the forest when a hippie climbs out of his tree house to greet them. Paul says "is this where you live?" and the hippie responds with "I live where I am." It just always stuck with me, and right now I am feeling more than any other point in my life.

So after my camp night I made my way into Albuquerque where my step brothers live. I stayed there for two nights just hanging out, drank a few brews at their local spots and didn't do to much else. Really wasn't the biggest fan of this town so I don't have to much to say. But- on my way out to Santa Fe I took a route that wasn't so much highway and came across some gold! Albuquerque has this huge mountain called Sandia Crest I believe. I really enjoyed the views it brought, and on my way out I see that I can ride up it! By far my favorite ride I've made yet. Pure beauty, super twisty and fun. On the way up I see a sign for "Tinkertown Museum." This place was to cool, this guy named Ross Ward built the entire thing by himself. I felt super inspired by this guy. Lots of cool stuff in there.

This was just one part of the western city he made that was completely hand carved. It was wild how big the display was, probably went on for about 30 feet. Cant even fathom the amount of time and patience this probably took. I was blown away. Now just a few posters I really liked. Really though I cant recommend this place enough.

I got to talking to someone on the top and realized I missed one vital part about this city! Well to me atleast. So I have a gold star to whoever can tell me who's house this was!
IMG 20150721 145652

So fulfilling my final needs I made my way to Santa Fe and here I am. Going to camp tonight and head to Las Vegas, New Mexico tomorrow for my first farm. So I wont have much to say for a little bit but I may update on some farm life as well. We will see- Much love everyone!

I know that tinker town museum. My daughter and I have skied a bunch at Sandia Peak. I always thought that road up there would be fun on a bike.
Glad you got to do it.

Lived at the base of the sandia's for about 6 years. Albuquerque is an awesome town if you're 40+, otherwise it can get boring. The Sandia's are pretty fun, but the real mountains are much more north. Enjoying your journey, makes me want to go up there and visit on my bike soon

Hey everyone! These last few days have been so RAD! Everything just seems so right. So what exactly leads us down the path of life we travel? Fate? Chance? ? It just seems lately that I am getting put exactly where I need to. After trying to get in contact with multiple farms to attend to and some being full, some just being really slow with their communication I decided I was tired of hanging around and made my way to Taos, New Mexico since I have heard great things about this place and whoa! This place really is something else, the people and vibe Taos has is awesome. I fit in quite well here! So I hopped on couchsurfer to find a place to stay and got in contact with an old hippie and he told me to come on by! When I arrived I was blown away, Keith is actually one of the founders of Food Not Bombs in Boston. He moved his operation down here many years ago and runs the Food Not Bombs "free school" in Taos. This place is awesome, tons of fresh food in the garden. A teepee that I stay in with a few other people and all the food I can eat!
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
So before I hit the hay for the night a few of the others staying here informed me that skunks like to hang around in the Teepee sometimes but they are friendly and just looking for food. So don't leave any in there! So ya- I went skunk free the first few nights. The third night I hear a buddy call from the teepee "Sawyer, the skunks are underneath your bed, Get ready for some action!" I got tired and decided it was time for bedtime with the skunks, its kind of a fun feeling. Walking that thin line between clean and fresh or having all your sprayed with skunk juice! Lol so my first night with the skunks went well and I woke up skunk free. They just rome around and hang out really, just be cool to em! One of the camp members even pet one, now that's a sight to see!
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
Just a huge salad from the garden we harvested. Such a great feeling pulling food right from the plant and getting to eat it.
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
So one of the things we do at Food Not Bombs on Saturdays is make food from our garden and also food that is gifted to us from local farmers cook it up and take it to the Farmers Market to give out for free! Such a rewarding feeling getting to serve fresh wholesome foods for people to enjoy.
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
So this was really awesome to me. I got in contact by chance with the local indian tribe that lives on the pueblo in Taos. They needed a little help with a few things so they brought me out to the land and I stacked a bunch of hail bails and did a few other misc things. I thought this would be the extent of our work but then they ask if we would like to work on the hemp field! Ummmm yes! I guess being on the reservation excludes you from federal law, so everything they are doing is completely legal. Its a shame we cant even grow hemp here, so many uses we can get from the hemp plant (non psychoactive btw). We arrived at the fields and what a sight to see. We had to pick and trim a bunch of the dead leaves which was a tedious task but I really enjoyed it. We also picked a bunch of fresh leaves that we used to make a hemp juice! That's what you see in my hand! Awe man was that delicious. They also asked if we would like to stay the night and enjoy a dinner with them. Really cool experience. Again everything I find interesting just seems to come to me.

Now yesterday was just something else- one of the coolest dudes ive ever met come to our spot and said he had a spot where the mushrooms grow rampant and asked if we wanted to go! That was an obvious yes. We hung around for a little bit and waited for the heat to die down, during that time he started pulling bottles of wine out of his car that he made himself. Holy that stuff was good. All of them were made from wild berries he picked himself, I was impressed being as I like to think I know my wines. His was amazing. So the time came to go hunting! What a glorious harvest we made. And no we weren't looking for those kind! Found lots of good edible mushrooms we were able to cook with so we made an awesome mushroom stew. Again life is just blowing my mind. Until next time motohouston!
