Travel Update 1.2

We got on the road bright and early at 5:00 am (Sunday) and got about 30 minutes on the way before we had to turn back and get Kendra's Diabetes supplies we forgot in the refrigerator. (Sigh). So, that was one full hour of driving endured but wasted.

Smashed a beautiful red cardinal creature of God with front of my car (it committed a Kamakaza attack on us), down into Indiana, South of Chicago in Illinois and continuing South down through Illinois and into Missouri at St. Louis.

Some nasty rain storms in Illinois made us slow down to 35 mph at times. It was the same areas that my father and I went through the bad ice storms in January.

Lunch and the famous Mexican restaurant called Taco Bell. Tanya drove next and Kendra and I got a good two hour nap in. Tanya finished all of Missouri and I took over once we were in to Oklahoma. Dinner at the other well know mexican restaurant called On The Border and sleep at Days Inn in Oklahoma City.

This morning (Monday) we got on the road at 6:00 am and started more driving in the rain. After a couple hours we were free and clear of the bad weather and have been making tremendous time. We have pierced through the top of the Lone Star State and drove through remarkable vistas of New Mexico.

We have copious digital occulary captures to share when we get home and can download them off the cameras. Mostly from New Mexico, the rest of the Country was pretty hum drum.

We are just now passing through/around Albuquerque, NM.
