Roswell 2Kv10 Road Trip

June 27, 2009

This is day 4 of the trip. I started the day with going to Katie's bench and dropping off the Flagstone.  Then came back to the hotel for breakfast, followed by washing the car for the show. We did a basic wash & vacuum in about 15 minutes and we were ready for the show.  We arrived about in the  middle of the group and ended up parking in the middle of the lot, landlocked in. We took a special green screen photo with the car and then tried to stay out of the sun most of the day.  We toured the UFO museum and spent allot of time under the large tent.

After the museum, I walked around and took pictures of every car. I also checked speedometer and took pictures of the cars in excess of 100,000 miles.  Then we walked to lunch.  We walked 2 block's off of main to Margarita's for lunch (recommended by a local store owner). Odd combination though, Buffet with Mexican, Chinese & American.  We did allot of just hanging out and socializing, but mainly just trying to stay cool.

Maybe it is a bad week, maybe it was this bad before; but I just don't remember.  This week has been extremely hot. It was extremely uncomfortable by 9:30 am and just got worst. Oh, did I say it was HOT!!!!!

 The zoo brought out some animals to show off, I assume they were hot too. The show finally came to close and I helped back up and get ready for the parade.  I had bought allot of candy for the kids, but that was a waste. I think partly because of the heat & partly because of the route and traffic control; we had very few spectators.

I also believe the police had a goal to get us off the road in 90 seconds or less from end-2-end. It was nothing like a parade I have every done.  The only closed traffic in one directly, so throwing candy just got reduced to one side only.  I gave all the candy to the hotel clerk.

We then had about 2 hours before the dinner started. The dinner was nice, good food, Slide Show by Cameron was great, including a tribute to Katie. It lasted until around 10pm, with allot of giveaways. I got my ticket drawn 6 of 9 times. Hope our kids weren't cheating, as they were selected to help Jerry with drawing the winners.

I want to thank the little people, without his help I wouldn't have won 6 raffle prizes, the one and only "MCJerry"
