More miles today, 309.
First stop today was Roswell. Stopped by the Visitor Center and a couple of Alien visitors tried to take me away. But I escaped and went next door to the Roswell Museum and Art Center. They have recreated Dr. Robert Goddard's early laboratory. You know him don't you? The father of rockets. But the main reason I went …
I am trying not to get too far behind, as it is surprising how much you can forget by delaying more than a day or two. One of the problems is that most state parks (which we much prefer) do not have Wi-Fi so we are not able to keep our blog current sometimes.
