We decided to stay at the site another night to allow Neil to do a few jobs on the bus. First job was to adjust the brakes a little, just routine maintenance. That done, the rest of the day was spent cleaning and fitting all the bits and bobs we had salvaged yesterday. And noticing yet more things that we had forgotten to get! And so the decision was made. We're going back to Albuquerque for a third time!

It's been a beautifully hot and sunny day, but as the afternoon passed, the big clouds built again and just before dinner we had a fairly heavy shower. We're not sure if it's just the weather pattern here for this time of year, or the tail end of tropical storm Edouard which Mel learned on the internet yesterday had been battering parts of Texas.

Despite having decided earlier to go back to Albuquerque, by the time we went to bed Neil wasn't sure. So we decided to see what time we woke up and if we were able to be on the road for 7am, we would go back. If it was later than that, then we wouldn't, as not being able to face spending another night at Wal-Mart, we wanted to be able to get back to Santa Rosa the same day.
