Alpine, TX to Marfa, TX. 36 miles, 1981 miles total.
I camped along side the road in some tall shrubs. The traffic was light, so I slept fairly well. A small herd of cattle came to the edge of the fence, hoping that I had something good to eat. No luck!
My bike is working a little better, thanks to a $70 repair job in Alpine. Got a late start after the bike shop work and a stop at the Alpine Library to up-date the blog. The guy at the bakery (also a long distance bike rider) gave me a bag of doughnuts (Bread and Breakfast Bakery ... great place for food!) I liked the town of Alpine, and enjoyed the evening at James and Julie's house, sharing photos and catching up with Matthais and Neele.
Here's Matthais with his new cowboy hat.
