Amarillo and Albuquerque bound.

Dawn and I left OK 12/8/19 about 1 pm after fueling up and taking a wrong turn (my fault). But hey, Dawn got to practice backing up the trailer. Initially, I just wanted to crawl back in bed for a nap but within an hour I was awake and ready to make the trek. We arrived after dark, having driven 380 miles in about 5 hours and 45 minutes. Needless to say, after pulling into the Cracker Barrel parking lot and getting settled, neither of us was up for socializing. Off to sleep we went.

Woke about 6 am and we had breakfast by the fireplace. Pays to get up early!

Drove on the Albuquerque arriving approximately 11:30 am. Went to a couple thrift stores but no major finds. Drove to a cute park where Dawn reorganized her trailer, again (wink), and I heated up some turkey soup I’d brought. A nice quiet lunch except for the buzz of a flying drone overhead. Then we drove to Old Town, where I left a little money in the merchants pockets. 😁

We then arrived at the west end Cracker Barrel where we cooked our first real meal, steak, Rice-o-Roni and broccoli. Of course a little Irish drink was consumed. 😋

Now I’m sitting in my van typing by candlelight listening to spa music. So relaxing that I hear my bed calling me.

Thank you for coming along on our trip. Chao
