Today was LONG. And to be honest…I’m so tired of driving. Errrrrrrr, riding rather.
Jeff Rose doesn’t think I’d be a good driver in this beast. I kind of agree with him. I’m letting him handle the captain stuff.
We drove from Amarillo to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Along the way we stopped at Tucumcari for some lunch. My husband’s goal on this trip is to eat at authentic places (not chain restaurants) and when I say this town had nothing. I do mean nothing. Except a Sonic which he refused to go to since we have Sonic. So instead we stopped at a local place. It was the most disgusting experience in my restaurant visiting life ever.
I posted this earlier:
“I’m gonna need a brief moment to recover from that lunch adventure. My husband just made us stop in the middle of nowhere (Tucumcari, New Mexico to be exact) at a restaurant that I’m certain wouldn’t pass any restaurant report card. I saw ants eating a dead fly on the window seal. There are some dirty things in this world that I can tolerate…but dirty restaurants isn’t one of them.”
Anyway, once that experience was passed us we arrived in Albuquerque and did some swimming and then headed to the mountains to take a tram ride.
Except the tram ride we took just so happens to take you to 10,000+ elevation. Did I tell you I’m afraid of heights? #awesomesauce
I was a hot nervous mess the entire time. Especially at the top where you get out and we ate at the restaurant up there. There are rails everywhere, but still…all I could think was boy overboard. I might have even cried on the way down the mountain. The stress got to me.
The good new is we met some wonderful RV neighbors tonight that had 2 little boys. And guess what? They had toys! Something we do not. Hehe.
Day 4 – Albuquerque, New Mexico
