Waltzing across Texas

Can't believe a week has flown by.  Wonder if the rest of the trip will go that way?

So far, good traveling.  Monday and Wednesday were particularly hard with  strong winds and wind gusts of 30 mph.  Today - same thing, except stronger gusts.. You just have to pay attention and drive slow.   My fuel consumption has dropped from around high 13 to about 10 right now..  Mostly due to the wind.

Buddy is traveling fine.. What is going in, is going out.. in mass quantities.

Charlie is happy,  we are in an enclosed area so I took him off his leash for awhile (with permission).

So far, all 3 of us are getting along fine except for when I have to load Buddy and he wants to stay where he is..
We are all still speaking to each other.

Had a great time riding at the Grasslands with Jonni and Bill.  Stayed 2 nights at a very nice Bed and Barn.

Today, I'm outside of Amarillo, headed to the Springer, New Mexico area.  I'll stay there a bit, then on to Farmington, New Mexico for my next competition.

Let's see what challenges this wind brings me..

For those interested in the Techy stuff like how far I go on each leg, how often I stop and my mpg etc.. I'll post that later this week.

Check out the fish.. see if you can see which one is the new one..  Probably need fed too.

  1. Your fish are too fun! I'm happy you are having a good drive across the US. Sorry that we didn't get to see each other longer, but hope that you will return in the fall.
