Grants to Tucumcari, NM 6


It was another uneventful ride yesterday as we traversed 255 miles from Grants to Tucumcari, NM. We did stop just before reaching Albuquerque and give the Mothership a drink at 3.279/gallon. It was a little longer, as will tomorrow's trip be, but the sky was blue for a change and we only had a short drizzle as we started out, clearing before we got to Albuquerque.

We are staying at the Tucumcari KOA which is the worst of the three we have been in so far on this trip, having side-by-side sites with the hookups between sites and sharing the passenger side lawn with the rig in the adjacent pair of sites. We do have a 50 amp full hookup pull-through site with good Verizon and a clear shot to the satellite.

Shortly after arriving we ventured into the almost empty town of Tucumcari and had lunch at Watson's BBQ which proved to be pretty good but we were restricted to brisket as they had sold out of ribs - OK for me, not so much for Doris!

Tomorrow we head for Elk City, OK to spend two nights and watch a lot of college football!
