Day 23 Gravel

Del Rio to 20 miles before Uvalde

Today started out with overcast and a possibly of rain which made the temperature about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. The winds were favorable for a majority of the day as well. The night before we were fortunate enough to meet a few fine people at the Holiday Trav-L-Park and when we rode by today they were all gathered on the street cheering us on! A big thanks to all of them and especially to Cindy for organizing it! On a side not everyone loved our Honda mini van and one of the couples even took a test drive with Big E. We had been in the desert for the past few days and it was a great change to be in civilization again. The roads today were the worst by far, we even passed by the Department of Transportation and wanted to stop in and file a formal complaint. It looks like they spread tar on a smooth road and then threw gravel at it sporadically, we have also come to the conclusion there are no steam rollers used in Texas on their roads. We are excited about a few riders joining us in the next few days and also the prospect of smoother roads.
