Whew! What a day! I started at 7 am and got to Tucumcari in 3 hours. I found the KOA, checked in and plugged in and went back to the office to ask about wifi. Well, the last big storm knocked it out and they haven’t fixed it. I put on my bathing suit and went for a dip in their freezing pool. It felt good. I met a behavioral psychologist and her son the student, car salesman. A big-built heavily-tattooed guy pulled upon a big beautiful new bike with pale gold body and fenders, and she, the psychologist said, “If he robs the place, duck under the water ! Behavioral psychologist ? He turned out to be Robert, who runs one of the local gyms in town, and was very nice. We talked about art and antiques. After 3 hours the car was charged enough to get me to Amarillo. I set the cruise control to 63 mph and just cruised. Easy driving. The car is awesome to drive. So quiet I can hardly hear the 18 wheelers as they pass.
The KOA in Amarillo was pretty nice. I parked between a couple of huge RV’s on blocks and plugged in. I was charging at about 28 mph. I went into the rec room to post this blog and there was hardly enough bandwidth to send an e-mail, never mind posting images. I struggled with that for a couple of hours while I watched Sweet Home Alabama on their TV. I talked to some nice people next to me who had photographed my car and wanted to know all about it.
