Change of Plans
Calculating miles and times, It would work if I just showered, packed the car, and head toward ABQ. That, I did. On the road out from Dodge City a little after 4am CST.
Pretty lonely across SW Kansas and a section of Oklahoma at tat time of a Saturday morning. Not even a place to get breakfast until I had been on the road for over 2 hours. Found a place in Clayton, NM. The sun was just up when I got there.
After breakfast, I started looking for abandoned building and ruins (see upper photo). Helps keep my mind on the road. Strong wind from the NNW and temperature dropping across the high plaines of NE New Mexico. Even saw some blue sky!
Found the rental house and got keys from the owner. He grabbed the wring keys, so a little delay getting into the house. Cranked up the heat and started unloading the car. While taking breaks to that, I checked e-mail, facebook, and processed the photos from the day.
Called Don about eating, but he was in for the night, Actually, I was a bit tired from the driving, so not looking forward driving for a brew and burger. Satisfied my cravings with some of my snack I had in the car.
