The last couple of weeks – well, month plus – have been full of stress and challenges on a personal front that I decided that I didn’t want to blog about. As part of it, I felt obliged to go back to San Diego and ended up staying there far longer than I wanted to.
I took care of things there as best I could and left when I had to. I drove the 2700 kilometers (1700 miles) from San Diego to Kansas City in 34 hours.
On the recommendation of a friend, I tried taking a shortcut between Tucumcari, New Mexico and Wichita, Kansas. I left the interstate and took Highway 54, a mostly two lane highway that has a speed limit of 65 mph most of the time, but slows down briefly as you pass through little towns in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
All I can say is: Holy shit.
