It seems every trip away from Texas requires at least a few night’s stay in New Mexico.
No matter how hard we try to avoid it, no matter how many promises we make to ourselves that, next time out, we will NOT stop in New Mexico, we always end up back in our second home state.
New Mexico will always hold a special place in our hearts as the site of our first road trip many years ago, our first taste of what would become our future life.
So, for better or worse, New Mexico will always be our first stop out of Texas – even now on our second full-time jaunt around the country. Tomorrow we follow tradition and return to where we let our dreams sleep.
