Bob has been spotted

Chip Clemmons who was on his way to El Paso kindly e-mailed me this morning to say he had met up with Bob. He found him near a ruined motel in the Guadaulpe Pass close to the Salt Flats, brewing a cup of tea.....and there's me thinking he's roughing it !

All three boys are fine, and Bob is looking forward to El Paso. The saddle seems to be bearing up, so let's keep our fingers crossed. It also looks as though Bob has got out of the mountains just before the bad weather hit.

Most importantly of all, Chip delivered him a supply of candy bars, so everything is fine, as long as Bob gets his chocolate buzz.

Many, many thanks to Chip for keeping our boy going. Have a good Thanksgiving, everyone we have met in America .........enjoy the Turkey.

Alos, many thanks to everyone who has helped Bob on the ride to El Paso........ I know the last part has ben quite tough for him,and he would have struggled without the likes of Lois and John....not forgetting Chip with the candy bars ! Bless you all.

Dearest Jan,

Welcome to America and I sure wish I could be there to meet you and Bob in person.
Bob, Congrats on your accomplishment, I am so happy that you made it safely and with no real bad mishaps. I am so proud of you and so glad that I was able to be of some help to you in your quest.
Always your friend in the saddle..

It was my pleasure to assist. Ol' Bob is quite a guy, and this ride is a great accomplishment. Hope I brought enough candy bars!!

Jan welcome to El Paso, my name is Vi and my husband Gary and I were very honored to have Bob, Tigers, and Cody as our house guest. I took a few pictures that I will upload to you as soon as I can get my husband to do it for me lol. I can't wait to read about Bob’s arrival to El Paso. I will be checking for up dates. Make sure he takes you out for steak and beer. God Bless. Vi
