Day 4–Cross Country Adventure

We didn’t make Amarillo before sunset yesterday so we altered our plans a little –we NEEDED to see The Cadillac Ranch in the daylight. We woke early in the morning to find torrential rains and cloud cover that made it as dark as night. Listen, lesser women would have driven by and taken photos, heck, while we were there, several did. What happened is documented in the photos you’ve seen today and below. Days like today prove that, when NOTHING in your life goes to plan, the right friends and an amazing family can make it even better than you hoped.

I’m about to nerd out here, so scroll if you hate that, but I have a LIST. it has all of the places that I want to see in America and the Devil’s Rope Museum is in the top three. I am OBSESSED with war wire and barbed wire. Can’t help it….it’s just cool. Thankfully, my travel companions don’t mind my weird. This post has a lot of photos. For the record, me, dancing in the mud in the pouring rain, is happy, incarnate.

About peik

What's to say? I'm a chronic fun seeker and life marrow sucker. I live in an ancient brick house in a darling town with my perfect and tolerant husband, my two amazing teenagers (The Giant and The Ginger) and two blue Danes (Oliver and Periwinkle). A lover of obscure roadside attractions and museums of oddity, I travel, write, laugh, make friends, write letters, sometimes run, eat great food and drink good whiskey. I've never had a bad journey and every single day is my grandest adventure.
