Today was the day to leave but our mail had scheduled had not arrived yet. Tracking showed that it would be delivered between 1 and 3 PM. So we had some time to kill. So we decided we might as well be productive so we went to the laundromat to do laundry. After that figured we would have a long drive and still had time to kill so we went to our favorite McDonald’s one last time. Well one thing led to another and we finally got our mail around 3:00 P.M.
Finally we were back on the road. As we pulled out of El Paso it felt really good to get back on the road again, driving down new roads going to a cool destination. About two hour driving we neared Carlsbad and I pulled off to some BLM land recommended by iOverlander and it turned out to be a pretty nice place, far enough off the freeway to avoid noise but not too far along a dirt road that was not too bumpy and the area itself was large, open and pretty flat. We closed up for the night, Holly cooked us another delicious dinner and we went to bed.
