Day 18 – Fort Hancock, TX to Van Horn, TX – 72.44 miles – Elevation: +1,690 / -1,138 feet
After the first full day in Texas it seems clear to me that the disagreement between my radiologist and my urologist will be resolved before I leave the state. My radiologist says I have a kidney stone, while my urologist says I don’t. If I do have a kidney stone, the chip and seal road surface will easily shake it loose before I leave Texas.
Almost every day we meet other across country riders. Since they are out there by themselves, to protect their security I usually don’t mention them. However, I can’t resist today. This one is just too cute.
