What is Left in Tucson

Well, today is my last full day in Tucson.  I am half-assed packed and the house is half-assed clean.  Whats left to do is not all that stimulating.  More cleaning and more packing....  These are two of the most exhausting things I can think of.  No matter how badly I want to go home it is still hard to get the ball rolling.  That being said I am so ready to come home.  Tucson has nothing to offer right now to keep me here.

I have enjoyed the weather and the training has been superb.  Tucson as a whole is just not somewhere that I could live long term.  There is something so strange about the desert.  So dry, and everything is prickly.  Nothing is green and water is nowhere to be found.  I have often wondered to myself, why would anyone have settled here in the first place?

I don`t mean to sound jaded.  I suppose I am just home-sick.  I guess its official if its in print.  Once again I have an epic road trip ahead of me. Tucson, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Canada, Saskatchewan, Saskatoon.  3,050km  non-stop if I can help it.  I am really looking forward to some familiar suroundings and to see my friends and Family in Saskatoon.  Now as I mentioned above I have some things to do.  pack, clean and make sandwiches.

The plan of Attack

Training shall be based solely on feel,
while racing shall be guided by sensations and instinct.
