Continental Divide Trail Map

Cars, Planes & Buses

My dear friend Traci arrived at 6:30am right on time. That made me nervous since she is usually early. We were headed out my bumpy muddy road by 6:37. She dropped me at the Manchester NH airport in plenty of time for my 9am flight. We have been shuttling each other to and from the airport for about 10 years now but this farewell was tougher than any. She is retiring from teaching in June and heading west to follow a new path in life. We plan to stay in touch but we will miss each other nonetheless.

The plane rides were pleasant and uneventful. I had some good chats with some interesting folks. There was a 4 hour layover in DC that gave me time to mark distances to the next resupply town for the first to sections to Lordsburg and to Silver City. That's a relief.
We sat on the taxiway waiting out a storm before leaving Dallas Fort Worth but not for too long. I even managed to get on the right bus in El Paso. It dropped me at a stop right across the street from the El Paso Inn where i stayed in a nice simple room. It was only 8:30pm but that would be 10:30 eastern time. It was also my 40th hour of wakefulness! After a 7 layer boritto at the Taco Bell just down the street it was finally time to sleep.
