    HOT HOT HOT! Anyone look at the weather conditions in Phoenix Arizona? It's supposed to be 120 for the next few days! 120 is to hot for this Ohio boy. I'm going to change my route plans to; going back to Las Cruces then taking rt25 north to Albuquerque, then Colorado. It really bums me out that I couldn't check the northern part of Arizona, it's beautiful out here! But Colorado isn't to bad eather... 🌞

    It *might* hit 120 on Tuesday, but before and after that, it'll be a nice, mild 118. I'm from Ohio, too. I don't love the heat, but I don't miss the snow.

    Albuquerque will be in the triple digits, too.

    Why not run through Four corners instead as the highway through there is pretty nice?

    I had a wonderful time with my cousin's in Bisbee. We didn't spend to much time in downtown Bisbee. It was "Gay Pride" weekend. I gess it gets pretty crazy... I checked out the old copper mine. Very interesting, a lot of toxic waste going on there... Today was the hardest day riding so far. I made it through the Border Patrol okay. Just gave them a little wave and they did the same. However the check point coming out of Las Cruces, I couldn't figure out why the dog was sniffing my ankle!(haha). It was a hard day riding with the heat (close to 100) and the wind. The air was very turbulent and I came the closest to running out of gas. By the time I got to Albuquerque, I was beat. I did get some dinner and drinks at "Twin Peaks" if you've never been there, GO! I'm getting up early to meet up with my brother in Trinidad Colorado. He has a cabin up in the mountains somewhere... Oh, the motorcycle is a real trooper. It just motors up the road. Also the compliments it gets... some good people you meet on the road.

    Yes it is; to me it's in a better class than Hooters course you could also stop in at the "Library"

    OK, Norm, have you tried the air conditioner yet? You have certainly had the opportunity.

    Yeah, I definitely did the shirt soak down a few times. The only problem is the water evaporates so fast. I don't have a "wind breaker" jacket. Just my cotton jean jacket. I keep a water bottle in the pouch on my saddle bag. I can give myself a soak on the fly. I hope I'll be out of this intense heat for the rest of my trip. The next couple of days I'll be riding in the Rocky Mountains. 👍
