This week was focused on preparing for, enjoying, and cleaning up from Jay’s brother Nate’s wedding. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs Holt!
We are ready to get back on the road any day now. We are trying to get the car road ready, which has proved to be more difficult than expected. Hopefully, we can resolve our car issues today and be back to driving tomorrow.
Where are we headed? From Phoenix we plan to head through Show Low on I-60 into New Mexico. We’ll go through the Belen area which is where my family owns some “worthless desert”. Next, we will visit my past colleague Jane Burr who retired to Mountainair, NM. From there we plan to head south so that we can ride our bikes in Cloudcroft, NM. And then on through Carlsbad into western Texas. We are trying to watch the wildfires in Texas to figure out where we can camp and how quickly we may want to head through the area. We are keeping an ear out for volunteer opportunities along the way — if you know of any along our route, please let us know. By next Wednesday we will be in the McKinney area, meeting up with my parents before Kate Wimmer’s wedding.
