Day 11: August 31, 1999
Tucumcari Tonight



Today we were actually part of the caravan and following (sorta) the official schedule. I guess you can tell that we are traveling in pretty classy company.

Here's a guy who believes that too much is not enough. Obviously not a fan of primitive camping. We passed him about 3 times.

We managed a couple of excursions on Route 66. Here is one that included a short segment of the 1937 alignment and passes Villa de Cubero where Ernest Hemingway worked on The Old Man and the Sea.

Tucumcari! This is the first time I remember pulling into town and being flagged down for a party. These people certainly make you feel welcome and have a really good time doing it.
