Idaho

Since we were so close to our hometown of Boise, we rented a car and took a side trip there to take care of alot of pressing business. On the way we stopped at Craters of the Moon National Monument. While in Boise we visted with Candi, our nephew, who along with his friends entertained us with Reggai music. We also visited with Nancy's friends where we dined on the most delicious food we've had in quite some time.

Texas

We followed the Rio Grande for miles and miles before finally reaching McAllen where we would cross into Mexico. Texas provided many challenges, including mountains, headwinds, and severe weather. But we also met many, many wonderful people who made it all worthwhile.
