Holy asphalt Batman, what happened to the cactus?

Friday 5/9 9:20 So we went from desert plains in west Texas to finding summer in one day and we went from seeing one car every 30 minutes to being in the Dallas – Fort Worth Traffic mess and being passed by a car every 3.0 seconds. We took Carol Ane’s nieces out […]

Dallas Skyline

So, we left the vast desolate, spooky southwest for civilization! At last. If you can call Dallas civilization. (Did I say that out-loud?) And we encountered traffic. Lots of traffic. How soon we forget? Now we are back in the wilds of Arkansas….

Look at what we found

It was getting late and I thought we were lost and Carol Ane kept saying “I know where I’m going!” and we came around a corner and saw this off in the distance. I whipped out the camera and took this shot just before a military truck came up and chased us out […]

Guess where we are?

Did you figure it out?? We are in Roswell, NM. Carol Ane has had a strange urge to come here ever since we were in White Sands. So we went into the UFO museum and looked around. Then Carol Ane dragged me off and we drove down these old roads till we found […]
