EXACTLY 31 DAYS LEFT.......I think?

Trouble with my gears again but this time it's just wear and tear, so I've got a brand new chain on my bike and I' ve just had the whole thing looked at before I head up into the Rocky Mountains..this next next 2 weeks is going to be very up,up and down,it's going to be another challenging chapter on this tour, but as I came into Pueblo this morning there appear to be quite a few bikers doing the mountains so hopefully I won't be totally alone,and there seems to be quite a few "camp sites " on route 50, so that looks good.
I'm not quite sure how the blogging will work out up in the mountains but there are some towns, so there should be a chance.
I get the feeling you ALL want me to buy this digital camera and that clears my conscience quite a bit....So there's good chance I'll buy it before I leave Pueblo......
The landscape in the last couple of days has been flat and arid I wouldn't say desert but it's getting there,I'll hit the real desert after the Rockies.
I haven't mentioned the wildlife so much since I 've started, that's probably because I've seen more dead than alive. Certainly in the first 3 weeks I saw deer ,groundhogs,rackoons,couple of dead snakes , skunks, one cayote creeping across the road, I certainly heard things in the shrubbery and the woods but what that was I have no idea.But generally it's pretty interesting what turns up,the moths and butterflies are big and beautiful.I'm now running out of time in the library so I'll wish you all a Goodevening or Goodnight!

  1. Make sure and get pictures of yourself bungee chord jumping off of Royal Gorge bridge. Somebody actually did that if you can believe it. (Near Canon City)
