I found a great little coffee shop in Gallup. Strangely enough it’s called Gallup Coffee Company.

They roast their own coffee and it really good. I love finding places like this while on the road. It’s a true gem.

Road Tripping

I love road trips. Last Saturday our youngest daughter and I started a cross country trip to move her back to California, from Virginia. It’s the second trip we’ve made across the country in less than a year.

Today I’m resting up, visiting with some family, properly distanced of course, then I’m back on the road tomorrow.

The time alone, without social media, is really good for me, especially now.

It makes me think of a simpler time. A time we didn’t have the internet or smartphones. A time when it took a while to get the news.

For four days I was mostly detached from the world. It made me want to find a remote place on some land and forget technology. Of course that feeling was fleeting. I’m obviously on my phone now, typing out this post.

We made it to our destination, Visalia, California, around 3PM.

I rest tonight and tomorrow. Back on the road Thursday for the return trip home.

Stopping for gas and some chow in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I love the desert.
