On the Road to Phoenix – Day Three
September 1st, 2017
Things that don’t mix: going uphill all day and big heavy vehicles. Neither of us realized that our planned route from Oklahoma City to Albuequerque would have us slowly but surely increasing in elevation over our 568 mile route, eventually to about 6,000 feet above sea level. The RV takes a bit more time to get going at elevation, especially if that going is up hills. This meant that our planned 8 hour drive turned into a 12 hour all day drive, so we were both pretty relieved to finally pull into the RV park at the end of the day.
New Mexico, but only because we were so glad to be done seeing things.
Texas. That’s when we first realized that the day would be slower going than planned.
Oklahoma (blame OKC)
Dinner at the end of the day
Quality Beef Producers. I’ve never seen or smelled so much cattle.
Best Wind Farms:
Texas. So many gigantic wind mills.
Worst Wind Farms:
New Mexico. I didn’t see a single gigantic wind mill.
Oklahoma City. They need more tall buildings.
