... on route 66 through Albuquerque might be a bit......tight. So we decide that we will stay in a RV park tonight, and tomorrow night. This will allow us the chance to explore Albuquerque in the truck....a much more agile beast than the motorhome.
We arrive where we're staying, which is right on old route 66, which is Central Avenue in Albuquerque. We set up and decide to head into town for dinner....and to check out the neon signs that route ...
