Our six week tripstarted with a brief stop in Nebraska to see the Nebraska Gorden's and where we continued to experience trouble with our slides. This time it was a set of three miniture circuit breakers, that required talking for extended periods with the CedarCreek factory in Indiana. Finally we were on our way again and knowing much more about the electrical system on our rig. Believe it or not, Judy and I were still talking!! The next two days were great. Except for the high winds and seeing a fifth-wheel rig upside down on a bridge in Oklahoma. TOOO fast in a bad cross wind. (SICKING and SAD seeing those people looking at thier truck and rig) We deceided to stay at Dalhart Texas for a couple of days and let the wind die down. Oh yeah, we watched Nebraska  and Oklahoma play their respective opponents. Judy loved it!!!!

The road to Albuquerque looked like this until the last 12 miles downhill into the city. I really had not driven up or down any 5% grades until that stretch, with six tons pushing us, it was interesting.

12 miles with 5% grades. HELLO!!!!

About 4 miles of grade was in Albuquerque I think and it must have been rush hour. Oh well, we are old hands at this driving by now. We continued through the city on I 40 and stayed  American RV Park on the mountain to the west. We had a nice view looking east over Albuquerque.
