Buckeye, AZ: Hot on my trail

Miles since last blog: 17.1
Miles Total: 3407.3


The goo has me. The goo that has been striking me when I am leaving towns for long stretches of desert. I just drag my heals enjoying luxuries like the occasional availability of food, water and shade. I'm tired, glad I'm near the end, a few miles left, must finish.

I guess incredible heat and more than eight months on the road is my krypotnite. Blech, looking forward to getting through the next 200 miles or so and back to a civilized temperature.

And a managed to make a video during the day as well:
