Day 24: Out of the Desert

We were greeted by a warmer than normal morning, but overcast. We had seen the forecast and it was supposed to be near 90 again, so a lot more people than normal started out shortly after breakfast around 7:30. The day was completely overcast as we stopped for lunch at the recommended Rudy’s BBQ in Del Rio. By the time we came out, it was sunny and humid. After a quick stop at Wal Mart for additional provisions, we spent the rest of the day fighting heat and headwind, but we made it another 70-something miles.

We are overlapping some days with the Womens Tour riders who are also going cross country. Bubba invited them to join us at our camp for an ice cream social. We had met several of them already, but we had time to talk more. They have 3 riders from New Zealand, 1 from Australia and England and a couple from Madison, WI.

They are talking about storms blowing thru tonight here in Bracketville,so we are heading to bed and hope to have a pleasant, quiet night. We’re sleeping in cabins for the next 2 nights with an off day but still have to ride 70+ miles tomorrow!
