Well, I finally arrived in Deming, NM. The supposedly 36 hour ride actually took 45 hours. That’s Greyhound for you, I guess. The ride was longer because I couldn’t get onto my transfer bus in Dallas – it was full. Unfortunately, though, my bike and gear made it onboard and the baggage guys wouldn’t let me take it off…even after knowing I would be on a different bus. They said it would be waiting for me in my final destintion…it isn’t.
So I’m now in Deming trying (unsuccessfully) contact Greyhound about my baggage. If I get them back in time, I may be able to make Hachita on the 24th. If not, I will try to meet Mathieu and Auke in Grants.
