Can I get a Deluxe Breakfast with hotcakes please?

On the road, and in a high roller motel in the middle of New Mexico. Here are some quick highlights of our trip down to Tucson.

-Planned on leaving Wednesday morning, really left in the evening.
-Also planned on getting ripped apart at the border, we didn't.
-We were not planning on pulling any "through the night'ers", we did.
-Planned on eating healthy, uh.......
-Ran my car to a 52L fill up, it is only a 50L tank. That was close.
-Got a freaking parking ticket before we had even left Toronto. Great start to the trip.
-Overheard a conversation from a cowboy in a gas station subway restaurant talking on the phone to many people trying to cancel his credit cards. He had just been robbed at gun point! He had pulled over to try and help a lady with a flat tire on her car, he only got out of his truck, walked over to the car to find a dude with a gun, "give me everything", the robber said. He did, and now he was stuck in the middle of Texas with no wallet and no money to get home and no body had offered to help him out yet. So mark and I split the cost of filling his tank. It was a shit situation he was in, and hopefully if something like that ever happened to one of us someone would do the same.

Anyways, it is time to go and see what junk food they are calling breakfast in this joint.
