*During part of our travels, we drove on the historic Route 66. We stopped for gas (I can't remember if it was Arizona or New Mexico), and the attendant came out and pumped the gas for us! It was so unusual, but kind of nice! (We also looked for Radiator Springs- you know, where the movie Cars took place :)
*We drove through and ate dinner in Roswell, New Mexico. What a creepy place. The McDonalds was shaped like a flying saucer, the CiCi's we ate at had green aliens painted on the walls, the street lights had alien eyes on them, and even the Walmart had UFO's painted on the front of the building. We were glad to leave there!
