On the Road with Tom and Gloria travel blog

For the first time ever I started the driving today. Into the fourth hour I was going strong (fast) and got a warning from an adorable, polite, KIND, Texas highway patrolman ( I keep telling everyone how much I love Texans). Could it have been all the Dr Pepper still in my system from yesterday? Today I stuck to drinking WATER! Shortly after " the pullover", we stopped for gas and switched drivers.

We passed so many interesting places today. (Like the recording studio, in Clovis N.M., where Buddy Holly recorded Peggy Sue !) Needless to say it is driving us crazy that we have to be in such a hurry to get to Mesa to pick up our coach. Storage fees on the coach are paid until the 2nd of January so we really have to hustle. Tonight we will spend the eve of 2009 in a beautiful new Springhill Suites by Marriott in Safford AR. Tomorrow we pick up our "home" and go to our spot in Gold Canyon. Will be a busy day and I pray all goes well. You never know what to expect when you park a vehicle for three months.

We welcome 2009 and hope for continued happiness on the road.
