I made it to Tucson, AZ today and Met Jay at a Motel 6. We were excited to see each other. We’ve been planning and preparing for this trip for about a year and a half. Jay’s been in Seattle these past years and I, of course, have been in Maine.
We’re going to spend tomorrow running errands, having my bike looked at by a mechanic and fine tuning the last minute preparations before we cross the border into Mexico. We should cross the border on Thursday (Jan 7th) and begin the international segment of our trip.
