Off the Grid

19 Aug

Driving to Conchas Lake, NM for a weekend reunion with the boyfriend’s high school friends seemed like an easy enough trip. Two hours east on I-40. Gotcha. But then once we got in the car and started driving I remembered why I usually head west on vacation. Eastern New Mexico looks like western Texas. Very long, hot, dry, and boring (no cell phone reception- the horror!). So we played an ‘I spy’ game. It went like this:
