Day 34 of 41 (The long road home)
28 Oct 2018
We eat breakfast and pack our tent. The weather is dry and warm. We leave the desert Oasis and head south again towards the border. We're staying south as long as possible to avoid the cold winter weather up north. We make a stop for gas every time we can. There's not much this far south except for ice machines in gas stations. the ice machines are unmanned just walk up and put a dollar in and it pours out ice.
We skirt under Phoenix Arizona on the 8 that becomes Highway 10.
We follow the 10 down to Tucson Arizona.
We spend a good our zigzagging around Tucson just looking all the buildings and how different their architecture is.
Next we stopped at Walmart and are covered in sweat from head to toe. It's crazy hot in Tucson. We take our gear and boots off. Put on tennis shoes and go to Wallmart to pick up the last of the food we should need until we get home.
We pack all the new food up get our gear on and roll out. It's too hot to stay still the sun is really beating down.
We south even more leaving the flat lands for some beautiful mountains. We climb the mountains in Madera Canyon and find a small place to camp. We pick a campsite that has a lot of rocks and is hard to set up camp. We don't sleep great that night. We also pay the camping fee in all coins. They would not all fit in the envelope so I just threw them in the iron guard hope they got it figured out. You could hear turkeys and wild animals all night the mountain. It was also one of the darkest places we stayed.
After riding 24,000 kms around Mexico, I finally had to say a bittersweet goodbye to my trusty steed. Mexico is a stunningly beautiful country with amazing scenery and some of the best riding I’ve ever experienced. My GSA served me well and provided me with endless hours of pleasure on the road. The bike has found a new home at Motofeel in Mexico City, waiting for a new owner to take it on even more adventures 🏍
