The end of the trail!
Or, where's papa with the wire cutters.

My favorite, Where's my buddy Clay, and his Jeep.

Any other captions you can think of?

Here's a couple of captions for you...

I'm so tired I don't know what I'm doing...

Maybe two beers is one too many...

Honey, please help me with this sheet. It's cutting off the oxygen to my brain.

This rock looks the same as the others... where are we...

I should have brought Skerr along for some shade, although he could only offer enough for a telephone pole.

Well were still in Albuquerque New Mexico, Vicki wanted to visit some winerys. So I took her. What fun with 50' of truck and trailer, in a city of 850,000.
This picture of the mountain would normally be clear, according to the worker at the winery. The is smoke from the South-western fires in NM.

100 miles to the South, 50+ miles to the West.

There's only one thing in New Mexico I should have done, and didn't.

Maybe next time.

Welcome to Texas , and the first rain and clouds we've seen in 2 weeks.

I followed this guy for 200 miles hoping some would fall off, Vicki had her arm out the window waiting to catch one, now she has wind burn. None on the important parts though. ROLF

290,000 acres so far on the current one. Lightening started this one, it's dryer than a popcorn fart there.

Years ago, while still in the service, I drove my car from Yuma AZ to NE Indiana and the trek through NM was brutal, but I stopped and filled up in Tucumcari and thought it would get me to Amarillo. When I got back on the Interstate in Tucumcari, I found a back wind that was pushing tumbleweed down the hiway faster then I was driving! I swear, my 92 Cutlass Supreme got 60 miles to the gallon on that trip, 'cause when I got to Amarillo, I could only put about a quarter tank in. Thought my gas gauge had crapped out on me or something! That's a pretty boring drive....

You have to stop on the East side of Amarillo and try out the FREE steak deal, Bill, I'm sure you can do it! Big Texan Steak Ranch, right off the I-40, FREE 72oz steak challenge!!!

Ive been seeing that sign for miles. I'm thinking of the John Candy movie, o yea, that includes the fat and everything.

Plenty to read on the Indian billboards thou. I think it was 373 miles across the state. Not nearly as bad as Kanas, or Nebraska.
