The Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico

Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Big Spring, Texas - Texas RV Park of Big Spring, 59 degrees mostly sunny. A little more than half the drive is in Texas today entering New Mexico thru the town of Eunice about ninety miles to The Ranch.

Travel will be mostly west (some north) today after a stop in Big Spring to top off Busters fuel tank. Diesel is $3.889 at Murphy (Walmart)
Texas 176 going west

The Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 79 degrees and partly sunny. One hundred ninety-four miles travel for Buster today. Mostly on Texas 176 that becomes New Mexico 176, all skinny two lane roads. In Texas the speed limit is seventy-five miles per hour thru oil fields and cattle ranch areas. State road 176 ends at US 62 taking that thirty miles to the "relief route" or by-pass of Carlsbad, NM as known in the area. The very first time I came upon this in 2008 I elected to go thru Carlsbad because "relief route" did not register with me as a by-pass route.
