    Day 11 Santa Rosa,NM - Adrian, Texas

    June 6 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    Day 11 Santa Rosa, New Mexico - Adrian, Texas
    Miles - 107
    How many broken-down wooden windmills - 44
    Turtles in the middle of the road - 1

    Good morning. Today, actually we were on time. We had folks bring their luggage out by the van by 7:15am and it was all pack and we were ready to roll by 8:00am. We're finally getting it together.

    There are two things that help Glenn in the process of packing. He puts on a dirty shirt, not the one he'll wear all day, and the 2nd thing he uses are those styrofoam knee pads. He put down a plywood floor to help move the luggage around and at times, Glenn is definitely on his knees. I think he has it down to a science. We had a short devotion then headed to Annie's diner. The cyclists got their food first and then loaded up for the 107 mile trip.

    To avoid Interstate 40, which is also Route 66, the cyclist biked south and then east and then back north to Interstate 40. There was nothing to see. Barron land. It was hot too. Lots of blue sky. Again, Glenn followed behind and the Pathfinder was ahead with the 2 camera people. Several times they deployed the drone or they took shots as the cyclists drove by.

    I did take a "cat nap" in the morning. My knees and ankles, especially my ankles were swollen, so I stuck them up on the dashboard. That really helped. We stopped once or twice before we stopped for lunch. Again, there was nothing out in the desert land of northeastern part of New Mexico. No towns. No one to run across and have a conversation with.

    We had a picnic lunch out in the hot sun. The cyclists came and sat in the air-condition van to cool off. Una message Wes's calves at one point. We had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and also ham and cheese. Fruit was apple, grapes and bananas. Before the cyclists would get on their bikes again, Glenn and I would fill their bottles up with water. We ran out of "clean ice". But at least we had water.

    Again, there was no gas station or convenience stores to stop at. The gals needed to go to the bathroom, so Una and Jeff drive on up ahead and they spot a small town, about 1.5 miles off the road that had a community church. Walk in, and in the back is the bathroom. Boom. Problem solve.

    Wes and Neil cycle until past the 100 mile marker and then we head onto the interstate. We have dinner at the Russell's Truck Stop just before the Texas/New Mexico State line. Glenn and I shared a chicken fried steak dinner. We visited with Wes. And Neal visited with a couple that wanted to have a conversation. He was in the navy and was an Admiral. I don't know exactly what they talked about, but I took a photo and then sent a quick message to Kris who prayed for Neil.

    Our overnight accommodations at in Adrian at the Fabulous 40's Motel. The air-condition works. and I'm getting caught up on my blog. I was also able to get on the internet and pay a bill to Darla. Glenn and I went outside to watch the ISS fly over.

    Ride to New Mexico

    September 27 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    First stop this morning was the Cadillac Ranch, where cars are dug into the earth as an artwork and comment on today’s society.

    We also passed the physical half way point of our journey, just before crossing the Texas border into New Mexico.
    As we rode, we could see the rocks slowly becoming more red, with yet more turkey vultures in the sky above us.

    We stopped for the night in Santa Rosa NM.

    Route 66 - tredje del!

    August 6, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Vi brugte god tid på hotellet fra morgenen af inden vi endnu en gang skulle køre hele dagen. Så kørte vi ellers videre mod Amarillo. Vi så lidt små byer langs den gamle route 66 og nåede så frem til Amarillo.

    I Amarillo så vi stedet hvor de serverer en 72 oz steak (2000 g. I følge google), spiser man det hele får man måltidet gratis. Der er alligevel en del der har færdiggjort den. Den ligger med et hotel i gammel westernstil. Derefter kørte vi til et visitor center hvor en rar ansat kunne fortælle os hvad der var at se langs ruten indtil grænsen til New Mexico. Så vi tog et stop på en vej i Amarillo med cafeer og genbrugsbutikker, dette var en del af den oprindelige route 66. Her fik vi frokost.

    Vi kørte videre mod grænsen, og fandt lige ved grænsen et visitor center for New Mexico, og holdte ind for at finde ud af hvad vi skulle se langs ruten i New Mexico. Så første stop var en by ikke så langt fra grænsen hvor de fleste af de gamle moteller, butikker og en enkelt tank var renoveret så det så ud som dengang route 66 var den mest direkte vej til Los Angeles fra Chicago. Så satte vi kurs mod Santa Rose hvor ville finde et sted at sove og få aftensmad. Der bar igen en by der havde sin storhed da route 66 var eneste vej til Los Angeles. En del af den er restaureret mens en anden del forfalder.

    I morgen går turen mod Santa Fe og vi skal overnatte i Albuquerque. Så nu vil jeg sove inden en lang og spændene dag igen i morgen. Godnat! 😄😴😴

    Tredje dag på Route 66 6/8

    August 6, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Vi startede dagen med morgenmad på vores hyggelige motel også var vi på vejen omkring kl. 10. Målet for i dag var at nå til staten New Mexico og komme så tæt på byen Santa Fe så muligt.
    Vi nåede til Santa Rosa, som er halvanden times kørsel fra Santa Fe. Problemet er kun at vi tager meget længere om det med alt det vi skal se på vejen. Alle de gamle skilte, bygninger og restauranter som vi skal nå at se på vejen!

    Fra Mclean kørte vi til Amarillo og så en del af Route 66, som lå inde i byen, hvor vi spiste på på Smokey Joes. Det var en hyggelig restaurant med både mexicansk og amerikansk. Jeg fik nachos og Louise fik en sandwich med kylling.

    Efter Amarillo kørte vi til et punkt i byen Adrian, hvor man er halvvejs med Route 66. Der er lige præcis 1139 miles til enden i vest og enden i øst. Vi kom dog lige 5 minutter for sent til cafeen, hvor Louise skulle have haft et længe ventet stykke tærte! Vi så det dog på den positive side og konstaterede at så brugte vi da ikke tiden der 😊

    Næste stop var statslinjen mellem Texas og New Mexico. Vi fik taget vores obligatoriske billede at stats skiltet. Samtidig så kom vi ind i en ny tidszone, så vi er nu 8 timer bagud. Det bliver sværere og sværere at komme i kontakt med jer hjemme i Danmark!

    Næste stop var Tucumcari, hvor mange af de oprindelig skilte og moteller stadig blev brugt. Det var så hyggeligt. De havde restaureret mange af de gamle moteller.

    Så stod den på Santa Rosa, hvor vi spiste på Joseph's, hvor vi fik kylling og kartoffelmos! Yay, det var ikke burgere! 😃 Det var en original Route 66 restaurant med skilte og billeder og det hele. En sjov ting var at menukortet var en avis med både historie om restauranten og retter.

    Vi skulle finde et sted og sove. Vi havde ikke booket et sted, så vi var rundt og høre priser hos de forskellige, men vi tog Americans Best value inn som havde et tilbud i et blad med hotelkuponer. Det er et dejligt rum med tv, så vi ser lige nu wedding crashers.
