Well, here we go again! We’re in Phoenix (actually Mesa, Arizona) and starting out on the road again in the morning. We’re a little anxious and a lot excited…It’s still the middle of a difficult winter in Denver (no bike riding for us in the last few months) but we flew yesterday to Phoenix, Arizona, to start our ride south. We’re starting up again! As you know, we finished up the first segment of the ride in San Diego/Tijuana in late October, and went home to get our affairs in order for the rest of the ride. We sold our house, sold our car, put everything we kept (not much) in storage, and are ready for a ride of at least two more years to Ushuaia, at the southern tip of South America. We went for a test ride today and it’s all strange – the bikes feel different and we feel out of shape. And of course we’re threatened by what lies ahead, wondering if we’re in good enough shape. As always, we’ll try to take it a day at a time. Our plan is to ride south through Tucson and Patagonia, Arizona, to Nogales, and then enter the Mexican state of Sonora, and head south from there. We hope to go up to Copper Canyon through a new route (coming in from the west) and then we’ll down the Mexican heartland toward the Central Valley and Mexico City.
