We set off for Las Cruces today. Susie & Gary were not sure if they would stop there or continue on, so we all hugged farewell.
New Mexico was still windy but not as bad and mostly pushing us. There was a large stretch of open land that we passed through that could experience dust storms, and there were plenty of warning signs for us to follow.
We had crossed a time line, now into Central Time Zone (Arizona is also Central but does not honor the Daylight Savings Time), so we lost one hour crossing into N.M. Again a bit of a long day's drive. After parking our coach, we walked to the Café by the campground for lunch.
Gary decided this was a good place to stop after all and arrived shortly after us. Later we took them to the Las Cruces Elks Lodge #1119, for a couple drinks and a lodge pin. They are also Elks. That's how we met. They had stayed at our Garden Grove Elks Lodge RV parking area a few years ago.
