truth or consequences new mexico

Today I say farewell to Truth or Consequences and start the trip to Crazy Cook. We've been here about 6 months which I've put almost training 500 miles along the Rio Grande. Along the way I've taken photos of some of the sights and put a few together in this video, please enjoy. 

Sunset at the Butte

My alarm went off about 5:45 a.m.  Didn't get out of the tent till about 6:15. It took about an hour and 2 cups of coffee to break down as I kind of milled around for about 10-15 minutes when I first woke up. By 7:45 the camp is completely broke down and I'm heading back down the trail. I survived my first night in the desert alone. 

I went through 3 1/2 liters of water overnight mostly because I killed the first go around at dinner. So I headed back to the Bus because 1/2 litter for 2 1/2 miles is completely doable. I didn't want to try and strech it to the 4 miles to the Elephant Butte dam. After suprising Kris and Jaco, a refill of water and a cup of coffee, I left at 10:00 a.m. heading to Elephant Butte.
