From Gallup, NM to Amarillo, TX!!!!

United Way stop in Albuquerque with Diane Denish - Lieutenant Governor of NM

We stayed up late last night, and got up early this morning to work on Stealth.  Because of the mountainous terrain, we decided to trailer Stealth for a while, so we drove to Albuquerque to meet the United Way.  What a wonderful reception!  They had balloons in the trees, and about 30 employees and others there to greet us, and even gave us gifts! Very nice people, and we also got to meet Diane Denish, the Lieutenant Governor of New Mexico!  From there, we cruised towards Amarillo, our home town!  We stopped at the Midpoint Cafe in Adrian, TX for photos on old route 66 – half way between Chicago and Los Angeles!  This town is not far from Amarillo, and as Jesse was driving in, the Stealth started acting up, really bad!  We were surprised as our oldest son, Joab, and his wife Melissa, drove up beside us to escort us in!  Jesse was really excited to see them, and it really gave him the “boost” to continue on to the stopping point in Amarillo!  We made it – although barely!  The Stealth’s engine got hot and actually melted a hole in the diesel gas tank!  It was leaking fuel out, and smoking really bad!  We had a wonderful reception with friends and family, and then went to dinner with several of them!
