Day 3 on the road 8.14.08

Another successful day travelling today. We made it all the way across New Mexico and are just inside of Texas, around El Paso. The trip was uneventful again and New Mexico was pretty. It was mostly desert, with some mountains threw in every once in a while. It was nice to travel through a state with so much sparsely populated! Coming from California where the cities grow into each other it was nice to see cities here & there. It was overcast which was nice because it kept the heat down. It was in the 80's most of the day until we were close to El Paso where it heated up to the 100's. Just outside El Paso we found a gas station, restaurant (called the Cotton Eyed Joe's), & hotel & are relaxing and will get started early tomorrow morning again. Today's trip was 373 miles and took us about 9 hours. It's a long, boring drive and I struggle to stay awake! I've found that keeping sunflower seeds with me and munching whenever I start to get tired keeps me awake. I'm driving the Jeep behind Michael who's driving the Wonder truck.

Two more days to Corpus!
