The trip home is looking good. Very nice weather - sunny and in the high 70s to low 90s, depending on part of the country and time of day. It will get down to the high 30s at night, so might be cold when we leave in the mornings - but that is why we have plenty of layers.
Bought some good cold weather gear for our necks/faces here. The Tuscon HD shop had some good stuff - the Pike Peak one did not when we left. Go figure - get cold weather gear in AZ not CO. :)
Will try and pick up some ABC Rally points. I think we can get 5 the first day, and then a few on the other days. That puts us way past the first goal of 26 and about 1/2 way into the second goal of 36. Don't know if we'll hit 36 before the end of the year, but just in case we go for it, we'll be a good ways along.
Rerouted our trip. Now heading north out of Tucson to Globe and up to Holbrook (first day) SH-77 north to I-40. Then across. Will give us a totally different trip all the way to Albuq. Then up to Santa Fe, stopping in Taos (or maybe Santa Fe depending on how we feel, etc.). Then up to Fort Garland, across to Walsenburgh and then home. We've done the Fort Garland to home part, but not the Taos part, so that will be cool for a new road as well.
Well... should start packing up soon. More reports from the road as time/internet-availability allows.
