Day 4: Long Way Back Home

Sunday morning. Time to pack it all up and head back to the lives waiting for us back at home.

218293793 M

Although loading up on the trailer, I wasn’t sure where I’d be debarking this train. I loaded the bike and only took my gear and tank bag into the cab.

218293777 M

Locked and loaded

218293927 M

We couldn’t have asked for better weather this weekend

218293993 M

Fog rolled over the mountains and through valleys

218294145 M

We stopped in Marathon for a quick look around at the Gage Hotel

218294183 M

A group of KLRs was parked out front, and at least three or four of them were new 08s.

218294300 M

The dash started alerting us to a problem with the trailer wiring. The incessant dinging was driving Duke crazy. No matter how loud we made the music, it simply couldn’t drown it out. Unplugged goes the trailer.

218294304 M

We stopped for lunch at a small mom & pop shop along the way, and this young lad was climbing outside on the window ledge. It seems he is here quite often, and does this every time.

218294366 M

The burger and onion rings were as good as any fancy place in suburbia. The couple that runs the small café overlap serving and cooking duties between the two of them.

218294375 M

Instead of going all the way back up to I10, we decided to head east on 90. It was a boring drive made tolerable by great conversation. We listened to 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea on XM radio and already started talking about coming back here with smaller bikes to get through the unpaved River Road.

218294395 M

We decided to stop in Del Rio and found this motley crew

218294470 M

218294578 M

We chased trains

218294598 M

Got some karma

218294681 M

San Antonio went by in a blur

218294703 M

And before long, the outer limits of Houston were laid out before us. We made one last stop for some drive-thru lasagna, then rolled into town.

218294706 M

Thanks to everyone who helped put the trip together. When‘s the next one?

And for those of you that don't like to sit through "all them werds", here's a video slideshow for your viewing pleasure. As always, it's best viewed at about half screen, since hi res pictures made the resulting viseo file HUGE!
