    Here I go again. To Tehachapi and back. Should be home by sundown.
    After sundown the Liberals wake up and will suck the conservative out of you if they catch you.

    When I get back I start vacation.
    I'll be driving to visit my sisters...
    IN OREGON!!
    Haven't seen them in a few years. They said "that would be wonderful!"
    Until I told them "I think I shouldn't wait too long to visit, you two are getting old" (I'm the youngest).
    My visit isn't so wonderful anymore.

    At least when I go on a mission like this, it's a Road Trip through New Mexico to Texas.  Scariest part is El Paso.

    I think we are done with out trips to the PRK for a while since the daughter settled on a college and we have milked all of the goody out of San Francisco.  Not to mention, Sonoita AZ has better wines than California does.
    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    El Paso gives me the willies but Ft. Stockton is right out of "No Country for Old Men" lol.

    Gonna make a trip to TX soon. Might take my AK pistol this time as opposed to my usual AR pistol.

    Wife has much family in CA still. All I got there are college friends and they are all state employees so on for nothing in common with them anymore since I'm basically a teetotaler.

    Not even shitting you - Fort Stockton is where they filmed "No Country for Old Men" and "The Three Burials of Malquiedes Estrada."

    Tommy Lee Jones has / had a ranch down there that he let friends and family use so he could keep the tax write off.

    There are long stretches through there and the Davis Mountains that get no cell signal and I've not been able to get anyone on the radio - CB or Ham.  There are a lot of UFO stories out that way too Balmorhea, Marfa, down 90 to Del Rio.  May be the AFB in Del Rio, may be little green men, may be rednecks lighting farts out there for entertainment.  The amount of alone I feel through there is heavy, and yet comforting.  I do OK alone.  It's the weirdness of El Paso that makes my hairs stand on end.  That and I'm usually armed up like a Mo-Fo driving through there.

    Normally I prefer the northern route from Flag to Albuquerque to Dallas but sometimes in the winter it isn't worth rolling the dice.  Hopefully one day I'll take a one way plane ride out there and bring Mom back in a Uhaul and not have to worry about it again.

    I barely get inside the northern city limits. Usually I swap an empty trailer for one that's pre-loaded and in-&-out in about ½ hour.
    Then north on US 54 to Vaughn,NM for the night.
    Next day another 650 miles on US 54.
