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.
