Harry and Judy's RV Trip

Day 60-August 4, 2013-To Tucumcari, NM
Drove 187 miles in 4 hours on I-40.
I really feel like we’re on our way home now. We stayed on the interstate, which is the quickest way and the scenery, although pretty, is unremarkable. Mostly junipers and sage brush, lots of sand again, every now and then an outcropping of rocks and sandstone but mostly just nothingness.
We’re staying at a campground right off the highway in Tucumcari, NM and not unhooking so we can get a quick start tomorrow.
Tucumcari is a town that used to be. It’s right on Historic Route 66 and has a few murals that are really nice. But just about every hotel, gas station, grocery store, convenience store and every business is closed and boarded up. Very nice woman managing the campground which I think used to have cottages and an inn attached. They all look rotted and boarded run down but the campground is OK for what we need it for. It’s a Passport America campground too so it’s half price for us. Tried to catch up on some e-mails, etc. but the wi-fi keeps bumping us off so it’s not worth the aggravation. I use the internet for mapquest and to find campgrounds too but that’ll have to wait or I’ll have to go back to the old fashioned way…using maps, which is fine by me, just takes more time.
