Default On the road again ...

Right now I'm in Clovis NM in a truckstop diner, just west of where US 84 merges into US 60.

This is the same diner where I scored a tumbleweed in the parking lot for a workplace Christmas tree in November 1991.

I hope I can find a cheap motel in SF when I get in, a few hours from now, otherwise I'll have to sleep in the truck until the sun comes up. Which sucks.

It's good that they have an internet connex here that lets me log in with my VPN.

If their truckstop coffee is as strong as it used to be, I'll be in SF around sunrise. Otherwise, I know a few good turn-offs between here and there.

So far, no tecolote sightings. Yet. And luckily, no water over the road either (yet), but a lot of the branches were really high between Brownwood and Swee****er.

I probably won't give another road report until I have a room in SF.

I was thinking about The Shed for lunch, since they used to have really good hamburgers.


Jim (no longer) in Texas
