Road Trip (Santa Fe, NM)

In about 2 hours I leave on a road trip to Santa Fe, NM.
It's about 1,300 miles. WOOOHA.

Looking at the map just now I was thrown off, because the directions had us going through Las Vegas. Apparently there is a Las Vegas in New Mexico – about an hour east of Santa Fe.

I'm going to try (to remember) to use InstaMapper's android app to track my location during the trip. I've set it up to submit my GPS coordinates every 30 minutes.

And less than 8 weeks from now I head to the REAL Las Vegas. I'm going to be flying for that trip though. It's been almost 10 years since my last (and first) time flying – I'm glad that the idea of flying doesn't terrify me completely (just a little).

This post is a bit rambling I guess.

tl;dr – 1,300 mile road trip to Santa Fe starts in about 2 hours. Vegas in October. Wooh.

    Please tell me you're staying at Excalibur when in Vegas. That place looks so cooky. I've never wasted… I mean never took the time to go inside there. I want a full report of your Excalibur experience.

    Nope, sorry.

    I'm staying at Bally's, which I guess is right across the street from the Bellagio.
