Well... that was too long a drive.  500 miles.  left before 9 and got here at 5:20 but there is an hour time change so its really 6:20.

Took a few snap shots of the dust in west texas.  Its just like the movies.  I will upload them later but from a quick glance, you can't really tell how thick the dust was.

Here in Roswell for a night (is the current plans).  There is a wildlife refuge I hope to get to just outside of time before sunrise.  And the off road park is about 40 minutes out of time (back towards Austin unfortunately).  I'm not sure if I'll do that or not.

The guy at the front desk (a guest) said the road from Alamogordo to Roswell was wonderful.  I need to do some google map searches and see about that.

Trip to Sedona, AZ

First entry of a new trip.  Going "west" probably as far as Sedona, AZ but first stop is Roswell, NM.  No... not to visit my alien family members but its a comfortable 7 or 8 hour drive and there is a wildlife refuge just east of it.  We'll see how this goes.

Finally back home

No pictures. The last 6 and a half hours of driving were incredibly boring. I will have a recap of the whole trip like total miles, etc soon.

Here is today's trek:

Still going home

My GPS pronounces Missouri as "misery".  "Take Left on to Misery 15".

Here is a church and an abandoned shack..



I bought a replacement cable but Google maps splits yesterday and today's trek into two pages...  Sorry for the four pages:

Tired

I'm at "Lake of the Ozarks" which is in Missouri. I lost the cable to my GPS so I can't upload my map. I have about 13 hours left of driving to make it back home. I'm hoping to do 6+ hours a day.

Iowa and Missouri just didn't appeal to me. I think I'm just too fatigued to stop and take pictures. Here is a touristy type gas station -- sorta cute I suppose.

Wednesday Quest for Color

No pictures today. I did pass some pretty scenes but thought it would be better later on. But, the color faded and I ended up empty handed (empty camera?).

Going towards home following the Mississippi for a while to see what its like.
