Last week we left for Phoenix for NASCAR. First though I spent Friday with some online friends. Thats coming in a post when I get home and blogging is easier. On monday I met up with online friends again , great day. Here is my on the road desk, my knee. My journal.
The trip home was filled the unexpected including the overnight camp ground stop where they only were in the office 9 am to 4pm. We arrived at 6 pm so they were closed and had to wait until 9am to pay and leave; then the fridge door dropping off en route. Chris fixed it with duct tape. We arrived at Fort Stockton at 7.30 pm. The route fro Benson AZ crosses endless miles of dessert, high plateau with only shrubs and occasional trees. In New Mexico the winds were so strong the mountains were hidden. It was a long day. It always blows me away to think that people crossed this area on foot. The terrain is so tough and sparsely inhabited even now. The first 20 0hundred miles into Texas are the worst!
