Ready for the next 450 miles...

New chain, new rear tire, correctly-sized thorn resistant tubes both front and rear, tires inflated, d/r's adjusted. Next major city is Del Rio.

That Marathon to Comstock stretch is part of the route to Del Rio, but in looking at the detail maps it seems no special preparation (e.g. setting up caches or mailing provisions to an intermediate post office general delivery) will be required: halfway through there's a town called Sanderson with a motel and a grocery store, then later on there's another town with a grocery store and another town with a service station. The route is mostly downhill, and the water capacity of the hydration pack plus the bottles is more than enough to get to the resupply points. In short this is not going to be a problem.
