We rolled out of Tombstone by mid-afternoon. Some miles down the two-lane highway, the TravBuddy caravan pulled to the side of the road until everyone had caught up - three or four vehicles and a motor cycle. We mulled there in the desert - in the middle of nowhere - for a good twenty minutes. Leave it to TB'ers to create from that barren landscape a memorable experience. The empty stretch of Highway 80 soon became a backdrop, as well as a stage, for daring group photos between occasional traffic. Jim passed around chocolate brownies that he had brought from Milwaukee; and Brett, snacks from the Netherlands. Mellanie hiked a pant-leg and stuck a thumb out to tempt - or confuse - one passing motorist.
The TB caravan stopped again at a turn-out overlooking Bisbee, an old mining town of 6,000 tucked neatly in the Mule Mountains.
