I finally drove out of the extreme heat. I headed out this morning and decided to make Albuquerque my destination for a couple of reasons. I realized that a holiday was coming up and I didn't want to get caught without a place to stay. I saw several casinos on the way in, but I wasn't sure whether they allowed RV parking. I found a nice park, not fancy, with great wifi, unlike last night, and I'm staying for a week while I explore the area and adjust to the altitude. I felt miserable when I had it last time. I came armed with a supplement that I bought on Amazon and a couple of cans of Oxygen that I will try out if I start to feel sick, and I drank water all day. So far so good. I'm hoping that staying at 5K feet for a while will eliminate problems when I head up to Santa Fe, Taos, and Durango, etc. I chose this park because it was only $18. per night and had a pool so I could keep up my exercise routine. Only after I had signed in did I find that the pool is out of order, and they don't think it will be fixed any time soon. :( I was too tired to try to find another park. I may be able to find a motel or hotel nearby that will allow me to use theirs.
The drive was long, today, but I was pleasantly surprised with the ride on I40. The last time I drove it, it was like a washboard. Bump, bump, bump. I didn't run into any traffic to mention until I got to Albuquerque at commute hour, and coming from Atlanta I, it's a stretch to say traffic. All and all, I haven't been on one bad road this whole trip.
I was amazed going through the panhandle of Texas at how many more giant Turbine windmills there are since I was last here--seemed like thousands. I tried to get a picture, but I couldn't so here's an interesting article from the web. Texas is Smart! Our country should not be dependent on other countries for energy. Congratulations to Texas. I thought I would be exaggerating by saying I thought there were thousands, but according to the link, there really are thousands. Texas is number 1 in developing wind energy.
I'm ready for a day of rest. I didn't unhook the trailer--just hooked up the electric and water. My neck was stiff and my back sore so I'll get out tomorrow--maybe. I want to scout around to see things I think Susan will be interested in when she comes out. We only have a short time here so I want to make the best of it.
Maybe tomorrow I'll finally have some pictures. I'm even too lazy to get up to get the little flip flop. Tomorrow.
