Tex to New Mex

Ah, we love some Johnny Cash and we were so glad our long day of driving ended with a pretty sunset.

As for the “chicken alfredo”…well, it was definitely a camper-version (you know, the kind of food that’s delicious when you’re on the road, but disgusting if you were at home). It went down okay though. It was probably due to the nice, cold beer that we each enjoyed (and didn’t have to split like we did on Ben’s birthday).

One more day of driving until we get to the Petrified Forest!

    so yall were totally driving through my old stomping grounds… i am guessing by the pics you went through sweetwater…. I went to school in lubbock (which I am sure you saw signs for). Driving around there kinda starts to feel like you are on a treadmill…. Congrats on making it through the ‘endless plains’..

  7. You should always keep green Tabasco on hand; it makes almost everything taste better!

    I love you guys so much! Next time we go on adventures, we should do it together… Also, a sweet trick I learned on the trail is peanutbutter ramen with a little siracha. I know it sounds gross, but give it a shot, it’s kind of like an asian style pasta dish.

    That’s funny, we had that dish this week (Ben didn’t do the Siracha but I did). We love you too and thought about you a lot on our 9 mile hike the other day. Can’t believe how many miles you’re hiking each day.
