Day 5 Road Trip- May 24, 2008

Meet T.W. (traveling winger) She is our other traveling companion. This is her first trip on the motorcycle- and to be honest. She is doing great. She doesn’t care about the weather at all.

5-1New Mexico landscape. The wind is a bit better today. Headwinds, which is bad for MPG, but much easier than the cross winds we’ve been dealing with the past 2 days.

5-2Clines Corners, NM. I have no idea what the temperatures where here- but I just about froze my butt off. When Jan said she was cold- I knew it had to be cold for sure. She is so hot natured that she runs around in t-shirts when I have sweatshirts on. The store clerk told us that yesterdays high was 37 degrees with rain. We have been real lucky and haven’t hit any rain yet. But we know the coast will provide more precipitation than we really want.


Here we are in Old Town Albuquerque. We both wanted Mexican food, as well as margaritas again today.

Here’s my lunch, I ordered a Chimichanga, but this wasn’t fried, so I’m not sure what it was. Whatever it was, it was sure good…. and hot!

This was the first time Jan had ever seen me eating food that was too hot for me. I only got about half of my lunch eaten before my lips were totally numb! I think she actually enjoyed seeing me sweat! haha But…. I got to drink about half of her margarita- It was too strong for her.


There is a real pretty church in Old Town- and this fellow was spending his afternoon drawing it.


San Felipe de Neri Church in Old Town. When we walked in the church you could hear the most beautiful music playing up at the alter.
