“It’s not an adventure until something goes wrong.”
This has been the motto for Arizona. We are only in our first state and we decided Arizona is not our favorite place to be. Day two in Arizona started off with a visit to the Urgent Care. Unfortunately, for the last three days I have been struggling with achy pains, massive fever attacks and painful headaches. I wasn’t sure if I picked up a strange bug on my previous trip out of the country, but I realized after another rough night I had to see a doctor. Long story short, I found a Urgent Care, got some antibiotics and, after another late morning start, Karon and I were off.
The Beast was cruising so nicely on route 66 until suddenly a giant “bang” scared the heck out of us. Tire pieces flooded the freeway and luckily no other vehicles were around us. We blew our first tire…. We are completely over traveling in Arizona and ready for New Mexico… Uhual donated our truck we are completely insured and covered. When Karon called to have someone come help us out, the operator knew exactly who were were and sent a service to us in 30 minutes. Before we knew it, the Beast was up and running again, we were singing and laughing out load on the 66 highway and New Mexico was almost in site.
Let the adventure begin….
11pm: Pit stopped in a Casino (we didnt win)
130am: Arrived at Holiday Inn Express and rested our eyes Tucumcari, NM
Departing TUCUMCARI, NM at 9am…
The Beast stuck on the side of the 66

Just when we think you have packed things correctly…we were wrong.
