Day 4 Texas, New Mexico, Arizona

Leave a comment



This morning’s stats.  Showing total driving time and mileage.

IMG_1740.JPGI worked a half day today.  Took two meetings but reception was not as good as yesterday, dropped the call a few times. But still it is pretty cool to be able to work from the road.


Today’s travels took us from the grass lands of Texas, to the barren land of New Mexico.  The rock and mountain shapes and structures are so rugged yet beautiful.  Two more time zones, guess it is time to adjust the clocks.  Playing havoc with our eating and sleeping schedules. Poor Riley didn’t get dinner until 10 pm last night.

The maintenance guy said that if you press No you get shocked.


Just passing into Arizona. What you don’t sing when you drive?

We stopped in Gallup for dinner. Got way too much food but I was craving BBQ. The combo platter seemed like a good idea.

IMG_1764After dinner a guy walks up to the truck and asks us for money. After giving us his spiel, T says no, sorry man.  The guy proceeds to tell us we are members of the KKK and that since we didn’t help him out something bad will happen to us.  We were thinking of staying overnight there but after that we decided to get out of there.


We made it to Flagstaff for our nightly stop.  Luckily the La Quinta takes pets.  Seems like a cool mountain town.

Day 3 Part 2 Round Bales and Wind Mills

So I take over the driving for the second half of the day to get us to Amarillo. All of the sudden our phones start ringing that emergency warning sound.  Travis
picks up the phone to find out it is a Tornado Warning.  IMG_1678The weather looked fine to us so we just kept driving.  Later we find out that the Tornado struck about 50 miles directly south of where we were driving.  The most exciting non-event of the trip, seriously my hash tag is not letting me down. #NeverAdullMoment

The rest of that evening drive took us past round bales of hay, tractors, and windmills.

We made it into Texas, the route takes us just across the square top of it.  The tip of the ice berg.

IMG_1737We finally made it to hotel after dropping Riley off we ran to the local Mexican restaurant.  It was too close in a ½ hour.  Just in time for a very large Margarita.
