Day 86 - Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, USA

Day 86 – 2nd September 2005 -7:00 GMT

Reece and I went for a drive, first we passed through Elephant Butte which is a city (a very small one at that, probably less than a thousand people) then we drove along the Elephant Butte Lake which is part of a State Park.

We drove for about and hour and took photo’s of the lake and surrounding mountains. We really are in the middle of nowhere.

Then just sat in the sun by the river reading a book and using the web. Ended up chatting to two guys one who used to be a heroine addict and seems a bit crazy, after he went through rehab he rode his bike (with only one gear) from the Florida Keys to Boston. He is presently here after riding his bike from Tallahassee in Florida. The other guy is called Albert he is also from Florida and is here getting away from the Florida heat, we drank beer and discussed politics our mutual love of George Bush, then about the Queen, conspiracy theories and about Stock Trading, the afternoon flew by. It was gone 7pm so Jill and Reece went to buy Pizza and I got some more beer from the shops. Reece and I then went back in the hot springs for an hour or so and chatted with many other people. The Thunder and Lightning started again so we decided to call it a night.
