Good luck, osso, in your trek to NM. I don't quite follow what your schedule and route will be, but I will be fretting about you until we hear you have made it safely.
(True story) When johnboy was barely 17, he drove a little old lady from Virginia to Minnesota. Four days. Partially because she could only handle so many hours a day in the car; and she had friends in various places she wanted to visit. Johnboy dreaded the idea of doing this; she was five times my age. But we laughed the whole time we were on the road together.
Any chance you could get a driver?

I actually (famous lost words) look forward to the contemplation involved in the drive, Johnboy - much of highway 101 is so beautiful. Plus there'll be no room in the car for another person. I'm a pretty fast driver when I'm not shut down by darkness.

This'll show highway 101. I got nowhere trying to find an image of highway 10 across the southwest, but part of it is on this map too, turning south at Phoenix.

Highway 101?

Quote:
He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots

And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back

He had a hopped-up 'cicle that took off like a gun

That fool was the terror of Highway 101



Well, he never washed his face and he never combed his hair

He had axle grease imbedded underneath his fingernails

On the muscle of his arm was a red tattoo

A picture of a heart saying, "Mother, I love you"



He had a pretty girlfriend by the name of Mary Lou

But he treated her just like he treated all the rest

And everybody pitied her and everybody knew

He loved that doggone motorcycle best



He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots

And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back

He had a hopped-up 'cicle that took off like a gun

That fool was the terror of Highway 101



Mary Lou, poor girl, she pleaded and she begged him not to leave

She said, "I've got a feeling if you ride tonight I'll grieve"

But her tears were shed in vain and her every word was lost

In the rumble of an engine and the smoke from his exhaust



He took off like the Devil; there was fire in his eyes

He said "I'll go a thousand miles before the sun can rise."

But he hit a screamin' diesel that was California-bound

And when they cleared the wreckage, all they found



Was his black denim trousers and motorcycle boots

And a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back

But they couldn't find the 'cicle that took off like a gun

And they never found the terror of Highway 101


The past may be ahead of you.

The guest room is waiting patiently for you. Fresh sheets and plenty of wine. Does pacco have his own bed or would he like a blanket to curl up on?

We are getting excited to see you again, plus already worrying about that drive at a very iffy time of year--but Rt. 10 from Tucson up to ABQ shouldn't be a problem--seldom any real snow.

I might even make a Buche de Noel for Christmas. Sorry, no cookies as I tend to eat them before they can be given as gifts. Miss Piggy, that's me.

Oh, I just finished a wonderful book called Riding the Iron Rooster. It will be waiting for you in the guest room.

You really are a gutsy woman. I can hardly wait for you to get here.

Buon fortuna, Osso. I'll be thinking about you while you're on the road. Have a safe trip. Say hi to Diane and Dys and Fred and Sally for me.

And good luck finding the perfect place to live in NM. Something with enough space on the inside and a garden on the outside.

Be well, mi amica.
