I am right on schedule.
The 500 said good bye to the California Riviera and headed east. We left home at 7am and after getting coffee, began the trek East.
Nothing much to report out of Day 1, other than stumbling upon the Chrylser “Proving Grounds” in western Arizona. There has been some talk about Chrylser being involved with FIAT’s return to the U.S., and even though the 500 was eager to prove herself, she arrived a bit early in the game
A quick 6 miles off course was Meteor Crater…didn’t stop in and look around, but the road was pretty interesting….
Much of the trek from Flagstaff into Albuquerque was filled with rain and lightening storms, which ruined my plans to stop at the Continental Divide since I was slowed down by the weather. I did make it to a comfy Marriott property in Abq right around 10pm – 11 hours of driving and 835 miles later.
Onto Tulsa tomorrow to visit with Allen Mandlebaum.
