We're up at 5 am tomorrow so here goes the quickest blog ever. GO.
The breakfast area offered some Free Gospel Tracts but I decided on just some toast, coffee and orange juice instead. We jumped in the car pointing it roughly in the direction of Albuquerque. Goodbye hotel - we'll not be back.
We pulled over when we saw a sign for 'Camel Rock Road'. I can't remember exactly why it was called that.
We chalked up our thousandth mile of the trip and pulled over to take a photo to commemorate the occasion. I'd like to say it was soemthing worthy of the occassion but it was just a road.
Seeing that we were close (by American distances) to Cline's Corner we decided to pop over because; (a) that's where I bought last year's "Stupid Holiday Hat" (and I was still without one a week into the trip, (b) we could pick up good old Route 66 from there and take some of it on to Albuquerque. They didn't have a hat. The bastards.
Whilst on Route 66 we passed through Moriarty and the Ria RV Park. We half remembered seeing it last time, but today it was in total disrepair. Of course we had a poke around. It really makes you wonder how a business to turn into an overgrown mess so quickly.
Onwards, ever onwards. The memorial of perpetual tears. Cheery, right?
Look - a sign telling you about petroglyphs, You're thinking we saw some petroglyphs, right? Sure, I'd think that too. We didn't. They weren't anywhere near the sign. If it was me I think I'd move the sign.
The only actual task for the day (bar finding a hotel) was to check out the location for a photo we're taking on Thursday. It's at a location used in the show Breaking Bad. We needed some lat/long coordinates to locate it, but we did. We are champions.
Job done we found a hotel about forty minutes away and we'll go back and take another look in better light at 7:15am tomorrow.
