I would never have believed it...

This morning we set off from San Luis Obispo on the last day of this stage of the journey to Patagonia.
We have arrived safely in the City of Angels.

This has been an extraordinary 60 days in my life. Without Dick's loving encouragement I would not have begun this journey. He has exceptional planning and riding skills and always focuses on the important things.

I have learned many things during our weeks in the wilderness and in the desert. It has been an inward journey as well as an outward journey. Our own Outward Bound experience.

The highlight has been the people I have met on the way. Every little conversation is an essential part of this journey. The deep personal sharing has been a blessing.

We are taking a 2 week break to go back to New Zealand. We will be on the road again on 10 September.
