And the winner is - Sandra! She correctly guessed that we were in Amarillo, TX. Her prize is a free BBQ dinner at our newly renovated back yard. Why were we in Amarillo? On our way to our destination - Miami. Miami Oklahoma that is, but why are we here?
We left Amarillo bright and early yesterday morning, watching the sunrise. Our trip only took us 7 1/2 hours with minimal construction along the way. To save about 100 miles we took a different route, instead of heading up I25 out of Las Cruces through Albuquerque to I40, we took a more direct route on a much more rural road Hwy 54. It worked out pretty good except for one section of construction, but with a savings of about $80 in fuel, it was probably worth it.
Newell has spaces for people to park their RVs while waiting for service the next morning. Here we are all settled.
Here is a picture of some of the many service bays Newell has available.
