    ... the busiest time of the year too! What an idiot! Fran had plenty to moan about with this chap and so she should too. Apparently she built up the diner business and then sold it to him. Since then she has had to watch him run the business poorly, making terrible business decisions. Just while we were there, there was a steady stream of tourists arriving, only to learn the place was closed. They weren't happy about it either. So we are hungry - it's ...

    We left Santa Fe this morning on our way to Amarillo, Texas with a stop in Tucumcari, New Mexico to view some of Historic Route 66. As we left Santa Fe on 285 S, we noticed a gradual decline as we moved away from the beautiful New Mexico mountains to flatter lands with green grass and cattle and horse ranches. We met I-40 at Clines Corners and headed east to Tucumcari to get a few Historic Route 66 pictures before heading to ...

    It was a clear morning but the wind had already started. As we were getting ready to leave, I noticed some structures at the entrances to the Walmart parking lot. They were ...

    ... 2 for $3.

    With the car gassed up and the boot loaded with supplies we headed out to Ute Lake, via a short detour to the Harding County state line, to see what interesting critters had ventured out for the weekend. Ute Lake was a lot busier than when we'd made the trip earlier in the week; there were lots of families with trucks and trailers all jostling for position, trying to reverse onto the boat ramp and offload ...

    ... to the very many unplanned detours we've made throughout our time in Texas).

    Not far from Adrian is Glenrio, formerly a bustling Route 66 waypoint that fell into complete ruin when the I-40 was built and bypassed the town altogether. It now stands empty, slowly rotting away, unnoticed by all but those that know it's there. It's haunting in a way, to see old gas stations, restaurants and motels and imagine how they would have been ...
