Day 49: WOOOOOOHOOOOO We did it!!!!

July 29, Rode the last 45 miles from Hachita to the border at Antelope Wells, NM and were given a red, white and blue Popsicle by the border patrol guards.  This was our treat for riding 2730 miles in 49 days and it never tasted so good.  We finished up at 11:40 am on a sunny hot day, riding it in about 3 hours and 20 minutes.  It was a day filled with various emotions, all in all we are just elated!  We did it!  Thank you to all of our donors, as we were able to exceed our goal which is just freakin awesome!! Soon after we finished we got a text from another couple we know from New Hampshire, that are also riding the great divide and they had just entered the US from Canada.  Go Patty and Chris, you are in for an amazing ride!  Thank you Lloyd and Carolyn for picking us up at the border, so we didn't have to hitchhike.  We really appreciate you doing such a service for riders, you two are wonderful people.  We will do a couple of final posts from home as we fly home on August it is time to relax by the pool and enjoy some down time and margaritas!!  Cheers for now, remember to check back for some final posts.
