Whoa, guy. Haven’t I already been in Colorado? Don’t have I only three states left? Shouldn’t I start skedaddling home?
Although I plan to cycle in all 48 contiguous states, my agenda is more complex. There are people and places I want to see that just can’t get covered in one pass. So, I am returning to Colorado with the objective of visiting my sister and brother in Denver, and then my nephew in Pueblo. From there, I plan to tour the juicy parts of New Mexico I missed in round one – Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque. I hope to spin across the plains one last time to visit Levelland, Texas, my home from VISTA days. In about a thousand miles I will resume counting states when I enter Oklahoma.
Not all who wander are lost; I have become an expert wanderer.
