Day 47: The breakfast of divide riders...

Saturday July 28, woke up early to some drizzle, decided to wait it out before embarking on our short 30 mile ride into Silver City, NM and to a cyclist only lodging at William's house.  Getting ready to eat our oatmeal for the upteenth morning, we were generously offered some eggs and bacon by Bob Barker himself.  We fried the eggs in the bacon fat, sure to give us the energy we needed for a climb out of Lake Roberts.  Eggs fried in bacon fat never tasted so good!  After scarfing that down, we went back to packing up our stuff, typical morning routine, when we heard Joe yell 'come and get your breakfast.'  He had made us an egg, sausage, bacon and cheese burrito, yummy!  Thank you again to Bob, Joe and Sara Jean for your hospitality and food, it was much appreciated and assisted us with the climbs we had to do that day to get to Silver City.  Bob also gave us some ham to make sandwiches to take with us.  We rolled into Silver City around 11 as it was paved all the way with a couple of hills along the way.  Did laundry at William's house and stayed in his guest home.  William, we really enjoyed your company and simplicity, hope you had a good 3 day ride!  Made some final preparations for the shuttle service and to camp at Sam's house in Hachita the next night.  The anticipation of the end is building.
