Winter storm Achilles took the proverbial wind right out of our sails and derailed us with its own winds, forcing us to break camp in Amarillo. The forecast for tonight is for 1-2 inches of snow and high winds. We began to feel the outer bands of the storm coming across the eastern plains of New Mexico and before we reached the Texas border the winds were strong enough to rip and pull two awnings off the side of the RV
The good news is that the new fuel filter worked like a charm as the RV purred like a great cat up and down the New Mexico mountains today.
The other good news is that we have plenty of food, water, Internet, cable tv, beer, scotch, and propane for the furnace, to survive Achilles. Yeehaw!
By the way, we've been on and crossed the old Route 66 plenty of times. Here's a great link to more info: http://www.theroadwanderer.net/route66.htm
