Lots of billboards along I10 in southern AZ advertising for ‘THE THING.’ We’ve seen them many times, have we ever stopped? Nope. Never. Not once. Where’s Lady Bird when we need her? And, boy, does that comment, age me.
We cross the panhandle of Texas and stay at a campground in Dalhart, TX.
Sounds like snow to me - we’d better be moving on. We had through of staying an extra day here but saw the weather and decided to move on, ahead of the storm that’s moving across the plains.
Lots of flashing red lights, cars backed up. Looks like a traffic jam and some problems on the road.
Only an hour left before we hit Altoona, IA outside of Des Moines and the campsite that is waiting for us.
