Late start Thanksgiving day. Had a grande Mexican meal the night before and enough cervesa to sleep very soundly. Got into Phoenix and had to deal with a place to stealth camp. Eluded park rangers and set up on a beautiful soccer field after dark. 11pm awoken by industrial mega sized sprinklers. WTH. Glad to get out of Phoenix next day

Day 3. Packing up this morning and the Border Patrol was not pleased with my camping location Great 6 mile downhill on interstate 8 then through the Yuhah desert and then the Imperial Valley. Flat and all agriculture. I am camped 100 yds off the road in a hay field. 81 miles today!!
Winding down day two. 55 miles pushing small gears most of the day with some great 2-3 mile downhills. Rest and travel, what a concept, unlike hiking. Favorite small town so far - Pine Valley - picturesque with monsterous banana splits. Stealth camping about 1/4 mile from the “wall” Love being back living the hobo life!!
