Day 124- Loud Wind

Day 124- Loud Wind

So today will be our last with John and Vicki. We wake up and already know the routine. We drunk coffee and pack up for one more light weight, Ja Rule free day. Into John's pickup and off to Lori's to get a ride out to I-40. She has already began baking by the time we arrive and tells us that she plans to send us with bread tomorrow.
It's not long before we get to walking, and only a few miles to a stucky's gas station. I-40 is really loud and doesn't allow Kira and me talk much. We are happy to see the station and get a small snack while we chat with Franky the attendant. He tells us 66 will be the frontage road to 40 for the next 30 miles or so.
Music to our ears we jump on 66 and walk against the wind for a majority of the day. We wrapped our heads with our flannels to muffle the sound of the wind. The look was comical and it kept smiles on our faces nearly all day, despite the hard job of walking against the wind. A quick snack of peanut butter and banana sandwich and a short convo with a concerned railroad worker and we are getting close to Montoya. The town is nothing more than a few crumbling buildings, but it has a good turn around and we call Lori for the last time. 20 minutes later and with a big smile she pulls up and takes us to Vicki's. We fix our tires and get ready for a restaurant night with the family.
Lizard lounge offered up some great eats and Kira and I enjoyed feely g like a part of the family while we joked around the table. I tried to puck up the tab, but John insisted. We had a great time.
Back at the house we watched television and then hit the sack. Tomorrow we leave for a two day walk to Santa Rosa where we will hopefully get a room to avoid the extreme cold that's forecast.
To a wonderful family,
