New Mexico

Heading out from Alabama to explore western New Mexico.
Off work from 3rd shift Friday morning...on the road @ 7 am!
A great start.
Balloon Fest in Albuquerque was timed just right...and a Johnson OB from ebay needed to be picked up there too...what luck.

Will have to post in stages...


Are we there yet?



Things you see heading down the road...


Arkansas rest area...I need a rest

Kept going to the other side of Oklahoma City...
Sunrise at El Reno, Oklahoma


Dang the wind!
At least was from the side and not a head wind.


Time was more important than MPG...at this point.


What a great name for a exit


We landed at noon...great time to get there...not much traffic

nice photos

Thanks for sharing...

What is the connection with Liberator?

We have a friend who was a nose gunner in a B24 Liberator in the Pacific WWII...

Just wondering about the connection...if any.

Great photos!

Great pictures Klattu. I was hoping to go this year, but signed up too late. I just looked at next year's prices for VIP.

HOLLY SMOLLY , up to $85 from $65. I know it's just supply and demand, but I still say it's legalized robbery.

Are those elevated shots taken from the Presidents camp ground?

Yes...Presidents lot.
Hold on to your wallet when you call.
I knew this was a one time trip, so went beyond normal.
Really was nice to wake up right there.
I would never recomed driving in each morning.
We would turn on the TV while waking up and see the traffic reports... "if your not in line, stay home" they would say.
Presidents lot was not where the rally was...but the best location with power and water.
1 free pump every three days.
We only stayed there Saturday thru Tuesday...then went touring New Mexico.



Yummy


This is why we went...won on ebay
