    All of this in 5.5 days! And for the quilters out there: the fabric store was Hancock’s of Paducah!

    But were any of the wrong turns at Albuquerque? (Really, I’m impressed by the low numbers on both the wrong turns and the book stores.)

    No wrong turns in Albuquerque but at one point we did see a lot of rabbits by the side of the road.
