I took off from Lubbock yesterday, initially meaning to head straight towards Albuquerque.  However, I came across news that family on Tara’s side would be getting together for a Memorial Day weekend BBQ.  I went ahead and redirected to Plainview to go spend some time with everyone.  It only added roughtly 20 minutes of driving time.
After I left, I cut across to Muleshoe, and then through Clovis.  It showed me that I haven’t been in New Mexico lately, with exception of I-40.  I wasn’t expecting to be going 65 mph.  The stretch from Fort Sumner to Santa Rosa was tough on me because I hadn’t slept well the night before, but I made it through.

Once to Santa Rosa, I was on I-40 and saw that beautiful sign that said I could go 75 mph.  Texas will have those signs soon.

I must admit, for about 30 seconds, I was thrown off by this sign.  That would be a great place to turn off to go to Camp Blue Haven, but that’s about it.  Not my destination.

It’s a little hard to tell, but those are llamas.

These aren’t llamas, they’re cows.  I was just surprised they were able to craze on scorched earth.

It was a little freaky seeing this truck come along side the train from far off, but I knew what he was doing.

These were the ONLY clouds in the sky at all for the day.  These clouds were just outside of Moriarty.

I find it funny that Motel 76 was sandwiched between Motel 6 and Super 8.
Nothing else much to say about Albuquerque.  As soon as this is posted, I’m packing up and getting on my way.  I’m due in Las Vegas by the end of the day!
