Day Six: May 30

We had a great night’s sleep at the Wigwam Motel. After a few more pictures of the unique accommodations, we went to breakfast at Joe and Aggie’s Café in Holbrook. Another great place … more good food and more good conversation with the owner and employees. We even got to hear the town old timers talk about the area’s best gasoline prices. It was a little hard to leave Holbrook … it is a great place.

In Albuquerque the van developed a rough idle. I think I got bad gasoline. We are praying the rough idle goes away with that tank of gas.

We finally made it to Tucumcari, N.M., for the night. Another unique motel – Motel Safari. The motel has been remodeled with retro décor as well as flat screen TVs. The free wireless (that I am using right now) was also nice. More great conversation at the front desk – the people along Route 66 have been so friendly. They really love what they do and where they do it.

More later … it is past time for bed.
