Our first overnight was at Dateland AZ, at "B" on the map, then Benson AZ for two nights (location "C"), then Las Cruces NM (location "D"), now at Alpine (location "E").
The drive so far has been smooth, enjoyable and trouble-free, with overall fuel economy of 11.2 miles per US gallon. Driving in this part of the country is fast and relaxing, because of the wide-open expanses of desert and good, mostly smooth, highways.

the historic jail cells. Fortunately, I was
released by the Navigator, who requires
a driver for the remainder of the trip.
We will leave Alpine tomorrow for an ovenight stop in Del Rio, then on to Boerne TX for a three-day stay. Stay tuned!
