Maiden Voyage...A Success

   I love it when adventures have adventures!!!  The plan to drive Marie to Lubbock to get the van out on the open road was elaborated upon when I ended up staying overnight at the campsite at Palo Dura Canyon Sunday night instead of heading back to ABQ!  With nothing but a blanket, a few bottles of water and a one serving container of Special K, "Flutterby" (the new official name for the van) and I honkered down approximately 800 feet into the canyon surrounded by about 100 Boy scouts!!!  What a hoot!
   She gets about 15 mpg...pretty good for an old gal and drives like a dream!  I love being up so high when driving...I feel tall!!!  Here's a few pictures...
At some point, I'm sure I'll learn how to line them up better...LOL
