TS 3 to TS 4: Alpine to Marfa

Time Station Miles: 26.5 miles; Accumulated Miles: 285.1 miles

From Alpine Andy headed to Marfa which is home to one bank, one pizza shop, one coffee shop, one laundry mat, one bookshop, and NO traffic lights. The town is most known for the "Marfa Lights." The course took us right by the Marfa Lights viewing station, which is where many people say they have seen unexplained strange lights dance on the horizon southeast of town, an area that is nearly uninhabited and extremely difficult to traverse. The mysterious lights are sometimes red or blue or white and appear at random times at night and during all seasons and weather.
Andy is still pedaling along, the temperature is dropping and the cold is becoming a factor. He has stopped for one 1/2 hour nap and a couple 15 minute power naps. We are keeping him warm with winter clothes and hot drinks and food. He is currently about a 5 out of 10.
