Up at 3:30 AM,,, yes... I am married to Melvin Haisler who wakes up before the chickens and every other moving object on God's green Earth.... Supposed to leave at 5:00 AM,,,, we leave at 6:30 AM. I think is a very good compromise as I told my friends my goal was 7:00 AM.... Of course we had a water mocassin have to make his farewell to us known. I looked out my kitchen window and saw Melvin running to the garage with a look of determination on his face... I kinda thought it must be a snake, I ran and turned on the outside lights while he was retrieiving the garden (snake killing) hoe out of the garage.... one less snake at the Haisler Hacienda. Pretty uneventful trip, we did stop right outside of Lubbock to help a couple with a flat, they were having so much trouble getting everything going... then his battery went dead, we jumped them off and then on down the road we go.... to
Fort Sumner Lake State Park in New Mexico.
