Mission Overland


Day 8 took me through western New Mexico, to the border with Mexico, and then through Texas and Oklahoma to get home to the family. Read the full recap of the last day HERE. Here are the pictures I took throughout the day:

Day 7 took me trough Southern Colorado and into New Mexico towards Albuquerque. After Albuquerque I made my way towards the western border and finally made camp in the Gila National Forest near Glenwood. If you want to read a full recap from the day, click HERE. Below are the pictures from throughout the day.

The LAST day! I knew getting all the way back home was going to be a LONG day but I was ready to get back to the family. But first, I needed to get to the border to call this trip complete. I set out early in the morning and headed towards the border where I dealt with drizzling rain the whole way under overcast skies.

This morning was another VERY cold morning and I love nothing more than putting on cold clothes and then trying to use my fingers to pack the Jeep up. Anyway, after fighting with tent cover for a while, I hit the road again with miles in mind.

As I set out on following the Continental Divide, I will be trying to post regularly to The blog, Instagram, and checking in on the Mission Overland Facebook and Twitter pages so check there to follow the journey. – For friends and family, you can use the link below and enter the password to see where I am in real-time and where I have been. https://share.garmin.com/msnovrlnd – Thanks for the support!
