UNwelcome to Texas

Las Cruces, NM to El Paso, TX (66.5 miles)

We were very disappointed today when there was no sign to welcome us into the fourth state of our journey. This disappointment was followed by yet another, endless miles of pecan groves and NO pecan pie.

After several failed attempts to get pie, Joe decided a doughnut would fill the sugarless black hole in his stomach. Nope...no doughnuts in El Paso either. More disappointment. Only this time, a new plan was formed. Gerry Frank shared some wisdom with his young,  naive son in law; "why not give up on doughnuts in Texas and eat a burrito every time you get hungry?" Genius. Over the next 3 weeks we will see if it is actually possible for Joe to become sick of burritos. I highly doubt it...
