I have arrived!

I am safe and sound in Durham, North Carolina.

What a LONG trip I have!

On Monday, we drive through the rest of Arizona and then into New Mexico.

As you can see, I am feeling fresh and happy that day. I am in the car only a few hours then.

People #2 brings out the video camera and gets excited when we get to the border between Arizona and New Mexico. There are funny looking buildings in the middle of the desert. I never see anything like it!

People #1 turns on the Radio and the strangest sound comes out. You will hear it in the video I post soon. But let me tell you now that it is something called Navajo chant. This yelling and wailing sounds like a cat fight! But there are also drums which is NOT like any fight I ever have.

After the chant, some Peoples talk in a language I do not understand. I am proud to say that I understand everything -- and I mean everything -- that my People say. But these Navajo Peoples on the Radio I do NOT understand!

We drive and drive until we get near a big place called Albuquerque. Suddenly Truck stops! What is going on?

Usually we turn off the big road before stopping. But now we stop right in the middle of it!

We sit there for the longest time.

I get a little scared and hide under the seats for a while. I am not used to this new routine.

My Peoples get out of Truck in the middle of the road and talk to other Peoples who also get out of their Cars.

They find out that there is a huge accident with two Trucks. One Truck hits something called a Paint Truck. I know what paint is! It is that smelly messy stuff. It gets all over the Road and takes THREE HOURS to clean up.

The sun is very low in the sky by the time we start moving again.

We drive for many more hours before stopping. Finally we pull over just past the Oklahoma border.

It feels so good to go back inside Airstream, have a nibble and a nap.

My paws are tired from all this writing so I save Day #3 for tomorrow. I just want to tell you that my trip is done and that I am fine, even though I am pooped!
