Day 15 – The Road Home

We were on the road by 7:30 a.m.  Weather was clear and sunny, very little wind, all the way up US54 from Alamogordo to Vaughn, NM.  Unfortunately, at Vaughn, US54 was closed.  Our plan had been to drive up US54 to just shy of Santa Rosa, then take US84 north to I25 just south of Las Vegas, NM.  Instead, we had to backtrack and take US285 up to Eldorado at Santa Fe.  This cost us about 2 hours, maybe a little more, as part of the route was under construction and thus narrow and unpaved.  Once we hit I25 near Santa Fe, the roads were all good.  Sunny all the way.  Some wind, but not enough to cause problems.  We only made it as far as Limon, CO.  But we still made 580+ miles today.
We’re staying in a hotel tonight so that we don’t have all the connection/disconnection issues with the trailer.  We hope to be up and on the road at 6 a.m. since we’ll lose an hour when we transition from Mountain Time Zone to Central.
We just can’t make up our mind whether to travel through Nebraska or Kansas!!!!!
Hey Little Nicki!  The Daddies are on their way home!!!!!
