A few places to think about if it's getting late tomorrow are:
Loves Truck stop in Joesph City
Flying J in Winslow
My favorite is the Meteor Crater RV Park which is about 30 miles West of Winslow. Nice spots, super bathrooms and a nice pet run area.

Thursday morning several of us will be meeting in Flagstaff between 9 & 10 at Little America, Bulter Ave. If you need fuel or a bite to eat, stop by and say Hi...

Superman?

Hi, Superman / Terry. How do you drive 500 miles a day, visit friends, fix brakes, re-install toilet, re-install lockers, and post stories with pictures? And when you get to California are you going to work for Andy, Rod, or Uwe?

We'll be leaving in a few minutes, it's a bit after 6 am local time, we should be on the road by 7. We have reservations in Flagstaff, so with any luck we'll be spending the night there. We're going to "stop by" the Petrified Forest, and I'll try to take a few photos there.

Take the time to drive through it and see the sights. Takes about 3 hours or so.

Marie, they are Mesas ("table" in Spanish).

Tucumcari has declined for a number of years. Traffic used to go down the main street before the interstate so a lot of businesses have closed. Traffic now skips it and goes on to Albuquerque or Amarillo. At least one trucking company used to have a depot there and that closed many years ago.

Hay I have been just lurking in the background reading your cross country adventure but I really thank you for telling me what that little locker was I just thought it was a waste of space .....SAM

Thanks for the history and geography lessons.

Hello from KOA in Flagstaff, Az. We stopped and had lunch with Rich, Eleanor and Emma Luhr and had a great visit. It was so nice to see them again. Sophie enjoyed seeing them also.

No problems today, thank you God, good traveling weather and traffic.

Still love the scenary. We are sitting on the side of a mountain and relaxing. We were going to stop and see the petrified forest, but time was against us, so we are thinking to take a trip back here in a few months to see several places we wanted to see.

If traveling on I 40, be careful, there is a lot of road work being done.

Take care.

Marie

Marie,

Thanks for the update, only another 500 miles to your new home. Take it easy across the desert.

Hi Marie,

As they say, ďThe only thing thatís constant is change.Ē I-40 is always under repair, everywhere. Itís one of the oldest and heaviest traveled Interstates there is.

Glad you had a good day. Best wishes.

tap-tap-tap... This thing on?

I'm sure we have a couple tired cowboys and their steed, Sophie. She's worked hardest of all.
