Jessi had studying to do, so I took her out for morning coffee (she got a smoothie) and then I left her. I drove from Corpus through to Las Cruces, New Mexico. I had planned to stay in El Paso but with the time change, it was just too early to stop. I was surprised by the expanse of the city. I know I will be back there someday. I actually have a lot of family that live there but none that I have kept tabs on. I passed through a major downpour and the weather cooled. I took Balt for a walk the hotel in Las Cruces that was very pleasant (we're at a Day's Inn). Tomorrow we get to California!
