We stopped in Milan, NM for gas and went across the road to a neat diner called WOW. I can't remember the name of that type of diner but you can look it up on the internet or maybe someone already knows what they call them. The Prospect Diner in Lake George is the same kind. It was a nice place with GREAT coffee. The coffee most use that we have had since we left is called Farmer's Bros. and is good coffee. Maybe even better than our Paul De Lima up north, but it is at least as good.
We then went to Thunderbird Harley Davidson to see a guy we met in Torrington, WY. He was quite a character and was caught in the hail and wind in Sturgis. He was trying to hold up his tent and the hail was beating the hell out of his hands. His wife finally put a pillow between the top of the tent and his hands. It was a little late because his hands were pretty bruised up. Anyway the guy had just left and wasn't coming back today so we missed him. It wasn't a wasted trip though because I bought a new pair of full fingered gloves while I was there. :^)
Somewhere just before Santa Rosa we see a car all smashed up in the west bound lane. It was headed East and apparently fell asleep or something because he went into the median and rolled it and it landed on it's wheels in the East bound lane. Good thing nobody was coming. Traffic was backed up for miles in that lane.
We checked into a motel in Tucumcari, NM (spelling is correct but no idea how to pronounce) after doing 338 miles. It is a Days Inn and it is OK but probably the worst we have had in 18 days. Just started to unload the Harley and BIG drops of rain started falling. It seems to have passed over now but the weather channel is scrolling severe storm warnings for this area across the screen.
If the weather is good to us tomorrow we should be out of New Mexico, across the top of Texas and into Oklahoma by tomorrow night.
OHHHH by the way it never got over 90 degrees today. That was quite a change.
