I was a little late starting out but I think I made pretty decent time today even though it rained on me all the way to Clarendon. For those of you "in the know" I almost went to Clarendon College to get a degree in Ranch and Feedlot Management..I was such a redneck nerd. So the highlight of my first day was the bathroom at the TravelStop in Jolly, Texas. I have never seen a heated political debate take place on a bathroom wall, but at least it was entertaining to read as I ridded my body of 3 RedBulls. See pictures to get a look at it. Also, there were three toilets and none of them had lids..so I took a quick snap of that as well.
I also got to see a beautiful Texas sunset.
Tomorrow I get to see the mountains to my left all day, so I'm really looking foward to that. There is a place on Hwy. 87 just outside Raton, New Mexico that I swear is one of the most beautiful views in the world. You're driving through the desert..nothing buy sand, joshua trees and yuccas when you come to the top of a hill. On the other side is the beginning of the Rocky mountains, covered in snow. I've always wanted to go back there and cry over Tony. I have no idea why, but I plan on doing it tomorrow. Maybe it's a good way to say goodbye for good.
Okay..enough somber. So tonight I'm going to bed with a coke and a snickers. I'm exhausted...talk later.
PS..I'm too tired to spell check...deal with it
