... t have been as doable while lugging all of our gear up.
Special shout out to Brian and his friends Kevin and Sam for driving us and then rescuing us in Sonoita.
On another note: I realized it's really hard to eat when my body is this exhausted.
Under 20 miles= eat everything in sight.
Over 20 miles= want to puke.
I need to get over this ...
I honestly thought we wouldn't make it at times. Not that we had a choice. It was hot with steep prolonged hills. We were literally chasing the clouds as they flew in the same direction of our travel. We had a headwind for a few big hills which made us hop off and walk our bikes.

Sadly the oil leak was pretty major and they would need Tony to stay in the shop overnight , we found a dodgy, smelly, noisy but cheap hotel for the night and had delicious pizza for dinner. $1500 later Tony is all fixed and we are back on the road, an expensive exercise but it's the risk you take when you buy an old car put a ton of miles on ...

... so even I will be able to do that one on my own. We may yet return just for that :-)
The last line brought us in to the cable-car station so, rather than having a long hike back up, we got to gently glide back across the canyon, how wonderfully civilised :-)
We were given some time to enjoy the views, where we were, and to chatter excitedly about what we had just done (can we start again please? :-) before taking a slow ride with equally breathtaking views ...
