Day 66. 45.39 miles. We finished!!! Larry and Mimi arrived last night and Larry made omelets for dinner in the community house. We Slept in the camper in Hatchita. Fresh fruit and yogurt for breakfast thanks to our camper friends. We headed out just after 7:30 am as we hoped to avoid the wind later in the day. It was a flat ride. Smooth road. 2 toilets and a chair in the desert. 4 dead Rattle Snakes. 2 live ones. Saw signs for Buffalo. One dead coyote. Mimi and Larry drove past with 21 miles to go. Lots of border patrol vehicles going by, some with horses and four wheelers. Tara laid in the road to prove it was the least driven paved road in America. (See photo…) she is still alive. We stopped for lunch. Nice weather. The wind picked up a little but it never became a tough wind. We saw a helicopter and then we could see a long line across the horizon which turned out to be the border wall. As we approached the border Mimi and Larry were there and Mimi was ringing the cowbells. We had a photo session and stripped down our bikes so we could pick them up for border sign photos. It took a while for us to organize all the gear and bikes on the camper and then we headed towards Tucson. We stopped at the Dairy Queen and camped at Crazy Horse. Larry and Mimi made a great dinner and we enjoyed it outside as the evening was warm and beautiful. Tara, would you do it again? Yeah! But on a mountain bike!
