Topic: the slow lane (6 msgs / 110 lines)
1) From: John Abbott
Let me tell you - driving in the slow lane in West Texas will get you 
killed.   The speed limit is posted at 75 - most motorist consider that 
a suggestion!  We drove on a strip of Highway 25 in New Mexico today and 
it was posted MINIMUM SPEED 65.   I would have stopped to take a picture 
- but you know...
We are as far as Grant New Mexico - You really  want to eat before you 
get to Grant - and forget coffee - complete failure.  I drug my coffee 
gear in and made a pot tonight after dinner.  I opened the room door to 
go get the camera from the car and a guy in the hallway smelled the 
coffee and asked where we bought it.  So I brewed another pot for him 
and his wife.  You would have thought they had never had coffee the way 
they raved - It still tastes a bit bitter to me - but then....
Looks like Moab Utah tomorrow night - lets see  Utah and Coffee - what 
was that I used to know :o(   So  I may stop along the way at a rest 
stop and plug my gear in and brew a pot - you don't suppose I'll get 
busted or busted up do you?
John - driving in fear in the FFFFFFAAAAASSSSSTTTTT lane

Moab is lovely, though. Make sure to slow down for that...

Moab is in a beautiful part of Utah.  If you have time, check out Arches
National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park.

That's funny, David! Earlier I had noted that Moab was lovely, but of
course that wasn't what I meant... Arches National Park is lovely, and I
had just made that into 'Moab'. Thanks for the reminder...

My guess is that with the continued popularity of mountain biking, Moab has
grown since I was there last, which is over 10 years ago.  Back then, it was
a crummy little town in the midst of of one of the most beautiful spots on
the face of the earth.
The funny thing about Arches is that the arches themselves are the least of
it - the other rock formations are equally, if not more, amazing,
awe-inspiring, breathtaking, etc.
Just south of town is Canyonlands National Park, which is also amazingly
beautiful.  You could spend months and months exploring Canyonlands and
never tire of discovering ever-more beautiful vistas.  Then there's white
water rafting on the Green River, or the Colorado River.  And a little West
is Escalante, a little south is Monument Valley, not to mention Bryce and
Cedar Breaks, each of which could take a week to see...
