Day 9 - 320 miles

Well its starting to be the same thing in the morning: get up, pack up, drink some crappy coffee lol.
The plan today was to ride to Marathon TX where I've made reservations in a little to expensive hotel but so be it, its still under standard Holiday inn or similar so I'll live with it.
Riding in a dessert was a totally new experience for me and I must say that I like it and maybe what helped was an overcast in most places so the temperature stayed on the low 80's, not to bad.
Rt 90 its interesting to ride with scenery changing from time to time and tons of border patrol around, I was stopped once on one of the routine check points, no biggie and they were nice and professional.
Big Bend tomorrow where I will camp for at least one night.



Taking off from San Antonio

My bike turned 70000 today yay
This was one super clean rest area

Some flora for you
Everything is bigger in Texas

Boys are on patrol and they are wheeling
Cutting through the hills
Just a few views
Dinner time
Overall the ride was a ok
It got more green at the end
and very straight lol
And finally I got to the hotel, check out the key


  1. Love the Gage Hotel! I stay there whenever I'm out there. Great restaurant, too!

  2. HI Jarek!!brilliant. keep it coming. Remember to keep writing your diary!! very important as you will find out when you get back. lots of memories will evaporate so be consistent!keep everything in it. and I mean it...everything. it's a nice habit to have a postcard send from everywhere you are.think about it. you get home and then you can browse through them and refresh your memories.
    that's it. I'm out. oh, one more thing. I'm so bloody jealous!
