We departed Fort Stockton early, but not as early as the race cars.  I heard several roaring to life at 5:00 AM.  However the BBORR had to do without us.  Our goal was to reach Tucson, AZ before dark.  We made it but just barely.

We arrived in El Paso, TX at 10:30 AM.  The great songwriter and singer, Marty Robbins had a far better reason to visit El Paso than did I.  You may recall the words to his number 1 hit.  "Out in the west Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl.  Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina.  Music would play and Felina would whirl.".   Well I never found Rosa's cantina and I never really looked for "the wicked Felina".

But we did find Barnett Harley Davidson and Vivian and Ricardo were satisfied.  Two hours after arriving, we were back on our bikes fighting the wind and traffic.  Today's run was only about 920 kilometers but it was enough.   Tomorrow we are headed to Colexico, CA to purchase insurance that will cover the motorcycles in Mexico.  With luck, we will cross the border early Monday and be in Ensenada by lunch.
