is my revised route for today's travels, routing around the forest fires. Basically it's highway 380 to Roswell, NM, then 285 to Ft. Stockton, TX. I got a late start due to spending an hour on the phone with Verizon Wireless after learning that nobody was able to call my cell phone. Turns out it was a Verizon network problem in the Socorro area.
The ride to Roswell was quite pretty. Here are some pics taken in flight:
These guys were holding up traffic near Lincoln.
Lincoln seems to be of historical interest, home to the Lincoln State Monument.
Lunch in Roswell:
The Southbound leg on 285 was flat and dull by comparison:
I scored the last street-level room in the Motel 6 in Ft. Stockton.
Then dinner at the steak house across the street. New York strip, baked potato, green beans, apple cobbler. Yum. Sorry no pics!
