Mostly a travel day - first stop was Tucumcari to take a picture of the Blue Swallow Motel for the NM Centennial contest. It's an old Rt 66 motel & is set up to look period with some murals & old cars.
Then it was on to Dalhart, where we bought an 18 pack of Lone Star - we'll take it home intact as we finish our Happy Camper IPA from Santa Fe tonight. Next stop was lunch at Liberal (refer to day 1 for details), and on to visit M.T. Liggett, the folk artist, at Mullinville, If you've ever driven past Mullinville (about 10 miles west of Greensburg on US-54), you've likely seen his "totem poles" whirling along the fence lines. This is our third visit with him, a real character. Here's a story about him.
Stopped at bustling Greensburg for a snack (& more antifreeze), then drove to the new HIE in Pratt. Dinner at Playa Azul (mediocre) and a dip in the hot tub. Tomorrow we go home! Today 403.9 mi /4115.5 for the trip. 30.7 mpg/53 mph. 330 mi to go!
