The old West of the old South




Faint and perfectly trafficless




One of my favorite nights accommodations. My little mud boob. A cold wind whip and howled but I spent a cozy night lit with a warm glow from candles.

One big Soccor field





Getting to this church was a wrong turn...

Getting down was good fun...

Titicaca

Bolivian border crossing







Creaked and groaned under the weight of Davie

Police station camping. Puerto Acosta. Waiting for the immigration shack to open

more Titicaca




On the old road to Lapaz

It probably didn't look much different when Butch and Sundance rode by.

 The Altiplano has a quiet and amazing beauty to it
   I felt a bit like a desperado at times rolling into muddy pueblos. I could refer to my self as The Dirtdance kid... if Cass was still here I could call him Butch Cass-idy....but that would be pretty corny, so I won't. Not in public anyway.

    1. Yea, It was a good. Polar opposite of our Run in Peru, but still good non the less. Keep yer eyes out for the mud boobs when your back up this way. Only used by farmers at certain times, so mostly available for cozy sleeping by passing mtn bikers.
