Day 54 Cuba, NM

"Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have
been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible
to do that very thing." ~ G. M. Trevelyan

Hello from Cuba! No, not cigar smoking, old car driving, Miami Vice
dressing, Castro Cuba. This is an allright town, plenty of food
joints and a good laundrymat.

Ran into Eric and Christine from Oregon early in the climb out of
Abiquiu and we rode the two day Polividera Mesa section together...all
of us deciding to relax in Cuba for a day. Having a great time riding
and hanging out with these folks. We also met a couple of Divide
hikers from Florida and we are meeting them for dinner tonight.

The last section had a lot of climbing, but the route quality improved
as it went. Scrub desert turned to nice wooded mountains in plenty of
time. Its all been very scenic, but slow going. Weather has been
good, luckily the rain waited till today and should clear tomorrow.

Otherwise all is good to go, I packed in some spare driveline parts
and extra tubes from my bounce box and shipped it forward, hopefully
for the last time.

Mileage to date: 2353.49
