We were up and packed and ready for the road by 6:30. This is our last leg and I’m ready to be back home. We took US 285 south and used the CO 17 short cut to save some miles.

Our last meal together on this trip is going to be at the Campus Cafe. The Campus Cafe is one of my favorite places to eat. The only problem is that it’s over 200 miles from my house.

We started off with their cinnamon roll as our breakfast appetizer.

We warned Chuck that three pieces of french toast was too much to eat at the Campus Cafe, but he wouldn’t listen. We got a good laugh watching him try to eat all his food.

We gassed up and started for home, these last 200 miles are mostly a blur. I’ve ridden this road many times and I may have gone into auto pilot. As we neared Albuquerque I started feeling nervous about getting a ticket or having an accident this close to home. At home the first thing we did was unpacked and dry our gear, then we repacked it for the next trip. Now it was time to start dealing with all the problems waiting for me at home. My adventure was over and real life was back in full force.
