it's not easy, being a cop

Tonight, we're in El Paso. Last night was Tucson, night before that was just outside of Los Angeles. The trip is going well, and going a lot faster than we thought it would. Tomorrow we start making our way across the vast wasteland that is East Texas, and the day after that, we hit our new home in Austin. We're both giddy with anticipation.

This afternoon, on the way out of Tucson, we took a little detour down to Tombstone to visit the site of the OK Corral shootout and all that. Pretty entertaining, and a nice break from the highway. Bernie didn't know a lot about the history of the Old West, so she had a great time at all the historical exhibits and such. We chatted for a little while with the guy at the gun store there - he somehow made his way down there from Ohio, and how he lives there with his wife, who is a Tombstone native. Crazy.

We've been listening to the BBC Radio production of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, which Bernie has also never heard. We just watched the television version recently, and I think she's starting to get the hang of it. She's got a lot of catching up to do.

Okay, bed, then the long haul across the big state.

So, if you're going from Tucson to Austin, the only thing between the two on the map is...

El Paso.

So stop in and learn how to stem the tide!

Aircrafts. Boats. Cars. Guns. Memorial. K9. Drug Awareness. Alien Apprehension. Academy.
