Our luck with tail winds ended, we've been riding straight into Southeast headwinds (15-20 mph with higher gusts) for 3 solid days. Tough getting 50-60 miles in. But we are in Del Rio, TX and will give our bodies a rest tomorrow. I know I am obsessive about tracking things so here is how we did from El Paso:63,72,89,55,55,60&58. I think that is about 65 miles per day. Anyway, we are hoping for a change in the prevailing winds, otherwise we will have to push on! We have also noticed,( among many other changes in the landscape), that the humidity is high and we might start to have grass to sleep on when we camp and not dirt, gravel or rock! Yes!
