On into Texas, and random meet up with the Wild Hogs from Pennsylvania. (apparently there is a movie I need to watch, didn’t get the reference, but was thrilled to get honorary status.) Took a bunch of photos and wished my mom a happy birthday from the road. (I think it’s her 34th… again.)


Writing this now from Cowboy Gelato in Amarillo, (can it really get any better than that combo?!?!) with a hoped for end in NM at Tucumcari where I’ve been told there are lots of fabulous classic motels.
